The Childhood of Christian Horner
A native of Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, Christian Horner’s birthday is November 16th, which makes him 44 years old today. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing. Among his closest buddies is his younger brother Jamie and his younger brother Guy. For a while, he attended the Warwick School after attending Arnold Lodge School in Leamington.
‘The Christian Horner Fan Club,’ a ‘unofficial’ Christian Horner fan organisation, is most often known by its members as the Hornettes. Horner was given a Formula Renault scholarship in 1991, and he took full use of it.
The next year, he raced in the 1992 British Formula Renault Championship with Manor Motorsport, where he was both champion and rookie of the year.
Then in 1994 he joined the Fortec team in British Formula Three, where he made his debut. After serving on the ADR team in 1995, he was transferred to the TOM’S team in 1996. He also raced in the British Formula Two championship that year.
Horner was the company’s youngest team principal when he joined the Red Bull Racing team in Formula One in 2005. The team’s success has continued to rise under the leadership of Horner.
Sebastian Vettel became the world’s youngest double champion at the age of twenty-three in 2011 when the team won their second Constructors’ Championship.
The triumph was the team’s third in the 2012 Constructors’ Championship. For the fourth year in a straight, the team won the Formula One Constructors’ Championship.
Beverly Allen, Christian Horner’s ex-girlfriend, and the couple they were together before had a daughter. He began dating Spice Girl Geri Halliwell six months after the birth of his daughter.
It was 2014 when they got engaged, and 2015 when they got married. Their first child, a boy, was born in 2017.
Career of Christian Horner
He began his racing career in karts, and after earning a Formula Renault scholarship in 1991, he progressed to automobile racing.
As a rookie driver in the Formula Renault Championship the following year, he finished in first place.
The Arden racing team, which he co-founded with his brother in 1997, was his first stop after graduating to Formula 3000. He was able to get the band off the ground thanks to loans from close friends and family members, including his father, who provided some funding.
He stayed in F3000 for the rest of the year. The voyage was made easier by the company of Kurt Mollekens. At one point in the competition, he and his comrade took the lead. However, Horner’s greatest result came in 1997 when he finished sixth with Arden.
Red Bull Racing team leader Christian Horner does not hold a stock in Mercedes, unlike Toto Wolff, who owns an interest in Mercedes.
In the past, both Horner and Toto, along with their respective squads, have shown their mutual dislike for one another. As for Christian, he is still raking in $10 million a year.
Outside of work, Horner has a strong desire to give back to the community. Now, he acts as an advocate for California’s Wings For Life Foundation. It is their major goal to improve public awareness of spinal cord damage.
In addition, the motorsports star was named an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) for his achievements (OBE). When he received the honour, it was in 2013.
