Christian Horner’s Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Christian Horner is the team principal of the Aston Martin Red Bull team. The Briton has been with the team since its debut in 2005. He did have a racing career, primarily competing in Formula 3000.

However, he retired from racing at the age of 25 as he felt that he was not as quick as the other drivers. So, Christian Horner elected to focus on developing the Arden team, who he previously raced for.

On-track Achievements

Admittedly, Horner was not particularly successful in the racing scene. He recorded a highest position of 6th in 1997 with the Arden team.

After retiring from racing, Horner signed Viktor Maslov and Marc Goossens in the 1999 FIA F3000 season. Arden also competed in Italian F3000 in 2000 winning three races and finishing second in the Championship.

After parting company with Lukoil, a new driver line-up was named for 2002. The drivers, Tomáš Enge and Björn Wirdheim took five victories and a title for Enge. Arden also went on to win the Team Championship that year, followed by many more.

It wasn’t long before Horner decided to knock on the doors of Formula One. He entered discussions with Eddie Jordan regarding buying Jordan Grand Prix, which fell flat. However, in 2004, Red Bull, purchased Jaguar F1 Team, to become Red Bull Racing.

In January 2005, Horner was appointed to head the team, the youngest team principal at the time. Under him, drivers David Coulthard and Christian Klien finished fourth and seventh in Australia, scoring a total of 34 points in the season

He also played a key role in recruiting McLaren technical guru, Adrian Newey. Newey was later announced as the team’s chief technical officer in November 2005.

2006 was a transitional year, and though the car was unreliable, it grabbed a maiden podium finish at the Monaco Grand Prix. Christian Horner even jumped into a swimming pool wearing nothing but a Superman cape to celebrate.

The team finished in second in the 2009 Constructors’ Championship with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber finishing second and fourth respectively in the drivers’ title race, and taking six wins between them.

In 2010, the team won their first Constructors’ Championship with one race to spare, and Sebastian Vettel won the Drivers’ title at the final race of the season, becoming the youngest World Champion.

At 36, Horner was the youngest team principal to win a Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship. In 2011, the team won their second Constructors’ Championship with three races to spare, with Sebastian Vettel becoming the world’s youngest double-champion. Soon, Vettel went on two grab two more titles for the Austrian outfit
