Horner and Newey to run Silverstone Half Marathon
11 February 2012 – Red Bull chiefs Christian Horner and Adrian Newey have signed up to take part in the 2012 Silverstone Half Marathon on Sunday 11 March – exactly one week before the new Formula 1 season kicks off in Australia. The Team Principal and Chief Technical Officer will be partnered by other company employees and Formula 1 fans.
“Red Bull Racing is proud to be supporting Wings for Life at the Silverstone Half Marathon,” says Horner. “They are an inspiring charity, which does great work for spinal cord research. I’m not sure I’m going to be setting any new lap records, but I’m looking forward to the event.”
Wings for Life logos can be found on both the cars and driver overalls of Mark Webber and World Champion Sebastian Vettel; incidentally, both men plus former Red Bull driver David Coulthard are ambassadors for the charity,
