Horner extends Red Bull tenure

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has agreed to extend his contract with the Milton Keynes-based team ahead of the 2013 F1 season.

Recent rumours linking Christian Horner with a possible switch to Ferrari can be scotched after news broke that the Briton had extended his existing contract with world champions Red Bull Racing.

The team told Reuters that 39-year old Horner had inked a a 'multi-year extension', without revealing any further detail of the deal. RBR heads into 2013 as pre-season favourite having claimed three back-to-back driver and team championships, and retains an unchanged line-up of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

Formerly a driver himself, reaching F3000 level, Horner has overseen each of the team's eight years in the top flight, culminating in Vettel's title hat-trick in 2012.

Red Bull is scheduled to become the sixth team to launch its 2013 challenge, when the covers come off the RB9 at Jerez on Sunday.

Horner is for me, the epitome of what a Team Principal should be, regardless of what I think of RedBull. CH is one of the very few who always makes time for the media, with a very clear open door policy, he's a champion of getting the fans closer to the sport. RebBull have a true man manager in Horner, a man that has pulled together a Ferrari beating team, lets not forget, it's not just the Horner & Newey show, there is a LOT of smart heads at RedBull ... plus he's great for the sport. No wonder really that Ferrari where apparently interested, but equally, a smart man knows his own worth! Fair play!
