13. Christian Horner | Team Principal, Red Bull Racing
|Position last year: 8|
|Bio: His experience as a racer and latterly in a management role means he is a highly valued member of the team.|
Once rumoured to be Bernie Ecclestone’s successor, Christian leads the Red Bull team, and has the trust of Dietrich Mateschitz, working side by side with Helmut Marko. Horner first raced himself in a kart at the age of 12, and soon after moved to Formula Renault – his motorsport career started as a racing car driver, before he switched roles to become head of International Formula 3000 team Arden International Motorsport in 1999.
At 36, Horner was the youngest Team Principal to win a Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship, and his four consecutive wins with Red Bull from 2010 to 2013 made him a highly respected figure in the paddock.
