Red Bull not willing to sacrifice 2021 for new F1 regulations

Christian Horner says Red Bull have to make the most of their opportunity to win the World Championship this season, even though most teams have ended their development to prepare for 2022.

Team Principal Christian Horner believes Red Bull could never accept sacrificing this season despite Formula 1's new 2022 regulations being on the horizon.

Every team have been forced to find a compromise between continuing to bring upgrades to their current machines and putting their efforts into next year's car when a new set of technical regulations are introduced.

Haas, for example, have sacrificed 2021 entirely to put all of their focus into next year's car, whilst McLaren will still be updating their car in the second half of this season. Mercedes and Red Bull's fierce battle has caused a headache over whether to push on to win the 2021 title, which could put their championship hopes at risk next year.

"It is embedded in who we are as a race team that it's not in our culture to give up on any season," Horner told Autosport.

"Of course, we have the constraints of the budget cap as well, which makes life slightly more complicated. But people have short-term memories in this sport, and you've got to go for it.

"Every race is an opportunity and if it means people have to work a little bit harder, and a few longer hours to enable that, then absolutely everybody is up to that challenge."

Mercedes' Chief Technical Officer, James Allison, has previously stated that the team's major upgrade for the British Grand Prix was the last big development. Horner was asked if he was surprised about Mercedes deciding to end their development so early.

"I don't know what their constraints are," said Horner. "Obviously they're a bigger organisation than we are, so cost cap is having a significant impact on their planning and how they've managed during the COVID period.

"We've managed to keep the body of the team very much together. I can't judge other organisations without having all the facts, so all I can do is focus on what we're doing and we're very comfortable with the approach that we are taking.

"Obviously if they are two seconds ahead of us at the first race next year, that will be disappointing. But I feel that we've got the balance about right at the moment."
