Horner praises Mercedes: ‘Most complete car built in the last six to seven years’


Christian Horner is impressed with the Mercedes W11. According to the Red Bull team principal, the Brackley team has built the “most complete car of the last six to seven years” this year. He tells that Motorsport.com. To close the gap to Mercedes, Red Bull and Honda have to take steps. “It’s all about working well together.”

Red Bull hoped to finally break through Mercedes hegemony in 2020 after six years of dominance. However, during the winter tests and the first GPs of the season, it quickly became clear that Mercedes has also built the fastest car this year. That combined with the aerodynamically sometimes unpredictable RB16 and the less potent Honda power source ensures that Mercedes is on its way to a seventh constructors title in a row.

In order to threaten the team from Brackley, Red Bull will have to take steps, the team boss realizes. “There is no Columbus egg. We need to improve in all areas. And so the whole team, together with Honda, is focused on that ”, says Horner, who is impressed by the Mercedes W11. “Mercedes has done a great job this year. They have probably built the most complete car of the last six or seven years. They have set the bar very high and we have to aim for that now. ”

To close the gap to Mercedes, Red Bull and Honda will have to take the necessary steps. “It is always a combination. It’s about working well together. We have the same goal, we pursue the same. I am convinced that we will succeed together. Mercedes has dominated such a long period, but as we all know in sports that always comes to an end. That is inevitable, ”said Horner.
