Formula One: Horner urges F1 to scrap 'complicated' fuel rule

Red Bull boss Christian Horner urged Formula One to scrap complicated fuel-flow rules that saw Daniel Ricciardo stripped of second place in Melbourne, as the Australian hit similar trouble Friday. Horner said policing the newly introduced limit on fuel flow, or rate of fuel use, "confuses even the teams" and should be axed with teams simply given a cap of 100 kilos (about 135 litres, 35 gallons) per race.

All bets are off, says Horner

By Alan Baldwin JEREZ, Spain (Reuters) - No team can be considered a favorite for this year's Formula One championship because the new V6 engines create far too much uncertainty, Red Bull principal Christian Horner said on Tuesday. Red Bull have won the past four constructors' and drivers' championships but the regulations have changed dramatically since last year with a new V6 turbocharged engine and energy recovery systems replacing the old V8s.

Formula One: Vettel win streak 'unimaginable' - Horner

Red Bull chief Christian Horner admitted Sebastian Vettel's run of five successive wins was beyond his imagination after the breakaway Formula One championship leader swept to victory in Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix. Team-mate Mark Webber's three-stop strategy ended in a second place, from pole, and came under scrutiny following a pulsating Suzuka race. But Horner insisted that, whichever way you diced it, Vettel was in a class of his own.

Vettel is up there with F1's greatest, says Horner

By Alan Baldwin YEONGAM, South Korea (Reuters) - Sebastian Vettel's imminent fourth consecutive Formula One title will rank him among the sport's greatest champions, Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said on Sunday. The 26-year-old's Korean Grand Prix victory, his eighth in 14 races, left him potentially one week away from clinching the title - the next race is in Japan on Sunday - but Horner still preferred to talk of if rather than when.

Horner surprised by Red Bull speed

By John O'Brien SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said even he was surprised by the sheer pace of championship leader Sebastian Vettel's car as the German cruised to victory in Singapore on Sunday. Vettel dominated practice, qualifying and ultimately Sunday's grand prix to stretch his advantage to 60 points over Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, cruising home by more than 30 seconds despite being slowed by a safety car period midway through the race.
