Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has assured fans that once the 2020 Formula 1 season gets underway, it will be “one to remember”.
Christian Horner thinks that the shortened Formula 1 season could be an advantage for Red Bull Racing.
The Brit expects the consequences of the coronavirus to be felt by the drivers and on the tracks.
“It’s been an unusual season, but maybe that’s what we need to take up the challenge with Mercedes,” the Red Bull Racing team principal suggested while talking to NU.nl. The start of the season on the Red Bull Ring is certainly promising since Max Verstappen won the races in 2018 and 2019.
Horner expects another year of spectacle to come, partly because the drivers have to come in after an extended hibernation: “I think it will be a fantastic season. Of course, the drivers will have to get used to it, but they will not need long.”
“It will be more intense than usual, with a different pressure and dynamism,” concludes the Red Bull man. Due to the shortened calendar, many races have to be run in a short time. Therefore, the pressure will be higher this season.
“But let’s not forget, Mercedes go in to this season as the clear favourites, they are six-time world champions, but we feel as though we are in a very good place and go into the season with the mindset to challenge what has become the status quo,” noted Horner.
