Youth or experience? The recipe for success in sport is never unique. Indeed, this world is not a laboratory, where the same results are obtained by blocking a variable. Red Bull, for example, he successfully pursued his own strategy on young people (for example with Sebastian Vettel) but then had to partially give it up, relegating Alex Albon to reserve to make way for Sergio Perez’s experience. On the upper floors, however, the 48 years of team principal Chris Horner are contrasted by the 78 of the director Helmut Marko and from 77 of the patron Dietrich Mateschitz.
Horner: “Disappointed by Mercedes celebrations”
However, the Brit has denied rumors that the latter two are winding down in their engagement with Red Bull. Which therefore is not looking for successors: “No, absolutely no. I think it’s the mountain air (they are both Austrians, ed). I mean, you would never believe that Toto Wolff is 65!Horner joked when his Mercedes colleague was at his side. “They are both in great shape and still very motivated for Formula 1. The commitment shown by the Red Bull group in Formula 1, with two teams, the organization of two Grand Prix on the home circuit and also the construction of the Powertrains, an investment that some have commented as reckless, should not cast doubt. This is Red Bull: to achieve what would be perceived as impossible, to become an independent engine manufacturer. It’s great that Helmut and Dietrich have this vision and this enthusiasm for Formula 1“.
