Horner extends contract with Red Bull
30 January 2013 – Christian Horner will remain as Red Bull Racing's Team Principal for the foreseeable future, having put pen to paper on a new 'multi-year' deal with the team. The Briton, 39 years of age, has been a key factor in the outfit's recent title successes.
Having been at the helm since the very beginning of Red Bull's fully-fledged Formula 1 story back in 2005, Horner has led the team to three Constructors' titles since 2010, while Sebastian Vettel has piloted the outfit's machinery to three Drivers' crowns.
The extended agreement, of which the exacting details have not been fully revealed, will see Horner remain in charge for the introdution of a heavily-revised rulebook in 2014, with the V8 engine era coming to an end in favour of turbocharged V6 units.
Red Bull will launch its new RB9 chassis at its factory on Sunday, before Mark Webber kicks off the team's testing programme at the Circuito de Jerez two days later.
