Indian Grand Prix: Horner praises team for another double

Christian Horner is full of praise for his Red Bull team after it wraps up both F1 titles in India
Christian Horner was full of praise for the entire Red Bull Racing team after it wrapped up the 2013 F1 titles in the Indian Grand Prix.

Sebastian Vettel stormed to victory to secure the Drivers' Championship while the team was also crowned Constructors' champions for the fourth successive season.

It maintained an impressive run of form for the team, which has now won an astonishing 47 per cent of the races in which it has fielded Vettel alongside Mark Webber since the start of 2009.

The titles have been secured this season with a run of six successive wins for Vettel and ten in total with three races still to run, and Horner said it was a campaign that everyone involved in the team would be proud of.

“To achieve four double World Championships is the culmination of an enormous amount of dedication and commitment from the whole team,” he said. “For Sebastian to have joined the illustrious names of Fangio, Prost and Schumacher is an incredible achievement, especially at such a young age and it's a privilege to work with him.

“It's an enormous day for the Team to have won its fourth consecutive Constructors' World Championship. Without the dedication and determination of all the staff from all of the departments throughout the company and from all of our Partners and the backing of Dietrich Mateschitz and support of Red Bull, none of this would be possible.

“There's going to be an awfully lot of happy people in Milton Keynes and Salzburg. We've got three races to go and we're just going to go for it.”
