The Red Bull team proved too mighty during the 2023 F1 season. From securing the world titles quite early in the campaign to ending their run with 21 wins out of the possible 22, the team proved in a class of its own. The outfit has received immense applause for its campaign and its team principal, Christian Horner has admitted that they will never be able to do a better season.

During the recently concluded campaign, Max Verstappen was at his menacing best and did not give his rivals, even an inch of breathing space. He was at his best pretty much every race weekend and his teammate despite his troubles, was also able to score two victories and end his season in P2 in the driver’s standings.

Christian Horner is over the moon with what Red Bull as a team achieved this year. While talking about the same to Sky Sports, the 50-year-old made it quite clear he could not have asked for a better season at the pinnacle of motor racing than the 2023 season with Verstappen behind the wheels of RB19.

It's been the most incredible year and I think it's only just starting to sink in what we have actually achieved this year, I mean winning 21 out of 22 races with this car has been, you know, incredible! I don't think we'll ever top this season. To have broken McLaren's record of 1988 shows how difficult it is to win so many races.

Christian Horner will eye another dominant campaign in 2024

While Christian Horner has admitted that Red Bull will never be able to top their 2023 F1 season, he would hope for a 2024 campaign somewhere close to this year. The Austrian outfit nailed the new regulations in 2022, and since, has been reaping the benefits of it.

Moreover, the current set of regulations is going to stay in place until the end of 2025, and considering this, Horner and Co. would want to make the most of their good fortune till the time they can. Max Verstapppen can still amass at least two more titles by the time 2026 comes around.

Verstappen is Red Bull’s most prized possession and Christian Horner firmly feels, that he is the present and future of the team. Keeping in view everything that has been discussed, it is going to be fascinating to see how next year’s campaign will develop for the reigning world champions.
