“It's incredible for the whole team to have won a third consecutive world championship,” team principal Christian Horner commented, “The constructors' is what we use to measure ourselves against our competitors and, for every member of the team, it's how we gauge our performance.
“The drivers' [title] obviously has the prestige and public following but, within the team, they carry equal importance. To have achieved a consecutive third world championship, which only three other teams in the history of the sport have achieved, puts us into a very elite group - and having done it in such a short space of time is testimony to all
the members of the team, [to] all the hard work, the long hours and dedication from every department. It's a very proud moment for every single member of the team and Red Bull.”
