Horner hails 'massive' team result
14 October 2013 – Red Bull team boss Christian Horner hailed as "massive" the outfit's second one-two finish of the 2013 campaign in Sunday afternoon's Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka.
Although Lotus driver Romain Grosjean bolted into the lead at the start of the race, Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber put Red Bull back in control as pit-stop strategies unravelled, ultimately locking out the top two positions for the first time since Malaysia.
"A massive result for the team to achieve a one-two in Japan," said Horner. "We split the strategies between a three-stop for Mark and a two-stop for Seb, based on the expected tyre lives on the two cars. Both drivers managed to make it work to navigate their way past Romain Grosjean, in brave moves down into Turn 1.
"A great result for the team and congratulations to Renault for another one-two-three finish on the podium."
Red Bull's Suzuka one-two result is the 14th in its nine-season Formula 1 history, all of which have been notched up during the period of Vettel and Webber's partnership.
