I’m an F1 supremo worth millions but I can pinpoint the exact moment I knew I couldn’t be a Grand Prix driver

RED BULL boss Christian Horner is one of the most recognisable faces in Formula One today – but he never fulfilled his dream of being a Grand Prix driver. The Red Bull principal – 25 at the time – was driving in Formula 3000 for a team he was also running in Arden. He guided Red Bull to their first Constructors’ Championship in 2010 – the same season Sebastian Vettel won the Drivers’ Championship, becoming the youngest World Champion. In 2011, the team won their second Constructors’ Championship with three races to spare. In 2012, the team won their third Constructors’ Championship with one race to spare. Red Bull and Vettel dominated again in 2013 and made it four Constructors’ and Drivers’ championships in a row. The following year, Verstappen retained his world crown and Red Bull also swept up the Constructors’ Championship.
