Red Bull director Horner earns contract extension
Formula One’s Red Bull says it has given team director Christian
Horner a multiyear contract extension.
The team confirmed the extension on Thursday. The team won its
third straight constructors’ title in 2012 and Sebastian Vettel
clinched his third consecutive championship.
A former junior series driver, Horner got his start running the
Arden International Racing team. When Red Bull owner Dietrich
Mateschitz decided to set up his own F1 team in 2005, he turned to
Horner to run the operation. The 39-year-old Englishman has been
running the team ever since.
A spokeswoman for Red Bull, Katie Tweedle, confirmed the
multiyear extension without elaborating.
