Christian Horner On Red Bull’s 2024 Chances

With the 2024 World Championship still a month away, the biggest possible question that is in front of the fans and the content creators of the sport is perhaps this:

Will Christian Horner and his Red Bull team driven by Max Verstappen romp home to another world title? Will it, as seen in 2023, be another easy triumph for the Milton Keyenes-based stable? Or will 2024 mark the new dawn of a team that doesn’t have Verstappen in its ranks? Could we, therefore, get to see someone else on the grid make the title his own?

For quite a number of years has the Formula 1 World championship battle swung Red Bull’s way soon after which it stayed with Mercedes, before moving once again towards Red Bull. The mark of sheer dominance and unprecedented excellence notwithstanding, it’s made F1 a bit of a bore.

Max Verstappen, now a triple world champion, massacred his opponents leading 75 per cent of the 2023 season’s laps. Red Bull won all barring one race at Singapore. That’s an astonishing 95 per cent of the races held and won last year. So what does Christian Horner foresee for the next yet-to-begin season.

What according to Christian Horner are Red Bull’s chances for 2024?

“I’m fully expecting with stable regulations, [there’ll be] diminishing returns for us, because I think we got to the top of the curve quicker than others,” says Horner. “The field is going to converge. For us, it’s difficult to know who that will be. Will it be McLaren? Will it be Ferrari? Will it be Mercedes? It keeps moving around behind us. But that’s what we’re fully expecting going into [this] year.”

Having said that, Christian Horner would also further add his perspective about whether there are other teams or cars out there on the grid that could borrow some hints from Red Bull’s superior title winning 2023 car. To this he’d add:

There’s always a reset as you go into the following year. I’m convinced that you’ll see a lot more cars that look like the RB19 philosophy going into next year. If you stand still in this business, you tend to be going backwards. I think we have got up that curve quicker than others, but we’re into a law of diminishing returns.”
