Christian Horner, Adrian Newey, 2010 World Champion Sebastian Vettel and six-time grand prix winner Mark Webber of Red Bull Racing – the 2010 Formula One Constructors’ Champion – arrived at the Red Bull Hangar-7 in Salzburg yesterday straight from Abu Dhabi, where they were greeted by a traditional Austrian band and a standing ovation.

 

Later that evening the four took part in Servus TV ‘Sport und Talk’ alongside David Coulthard, Niki Lauda and Gerhard Berger, before attending a celebration event at the same venue, attended by more than 1,000 guests. This morning Christian, Adrian, Sebastian and Mark took part in a press conference attended by journalists from all over the world. They talked about their success, which included nine wins, four one-two finishes, 15 poles and two World Championship titles.

 

Quotes from today’s Press Conference (Hangar-7, Salzburg, Austria):

 

2010 World Champion, Sebastian Vettel: “The past couple of months have been a unique experience for me and I have experienced great moments, which I will never forget, but there were also some difficult situations. I am very proud of what we have achieved – it’s a great moment for me and the whole team. I’m looking forward to some relaxing moments now, in order to realise what’s just happened. It is of course now the time to enjoy the success, but we will soon be facing new challenges and the aim for next year is to defend both titles. There is lots to do, but I’m convinced that we will once again be among the best teams competing.

“I am very happy with this team – we’re like a big family, everyone has fun and is dedicated to what they are doing; only when it’s like this is it possible to achieve at such a high level. Without the support I received from the Red Bull Junior Programme, I would not be sitting here today as a World Champion.”

 

Mark Webber: “The Constructors’ Championship was very important for Red Bull and shows that this season has bound the team together; we can all be very proud of what we have achieved. I just missed my personal target this season, but there were many highlights and the next season starts soon. It’s not always been easy for either of us (Seb or me) during the year, but this is normal when you’re competing against each other at this level. We both wanted to become World Champion and therefore we pushed the whole team to perfection. At the end of the season, we are honestly able to show respect for each other’s performance, which is very important. Congratulations to Sebastian, he really deserves the title.

 

Christian Horner: ”I have to congratulate both drivers, as well as the whole team. We have overcome all the problems we experienced and pushed each other to the limit. We were able to keep top teams such as Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes in check and will work hard on keeping it that way in the future. This is the next big challenge for the whole team.

“It’s been an outstanding season for Red Bull Racing. We have met our two big targets after only six seasons and we will enjoy this success for a couple of days before we start to build on this result and get ready for new challenges in 2011.”

 

Adrian Newey: ”After six years of hard work in Milton Keynes we have reached the target. The package was excellent: the drivers, team and cars worked well as a unit. For 2011 we need to further perfect this, in order to defend these Championships.”

 

After the press conference, Christian, Adrian, Mark and Sebastian flew back to the UK to see the team at its base in Milton Keynes, UK.
