In 2023, Red Bull certifies one of the most rounded and complete seasons in history. Verstappen’s third crown will likely come in the next race, while this Sunday in Suzuka he won his sixth constructors’ title. The figures show the RB19 as one of the most dominant cars on the same podium as the Ferrari F2004, the 1988 McLaren MP4/4 or the hybrid Mercedes.
They are the fifth team in victories with 106 and the sixth in terms of constructors’ titles (6) surpassed by Ferrari (16), Williams (9), McLaren (8), Mercedes (8) and Lotus (7). They have officially competed since 2005, when energy drink owner Dietrich Mateschitz, who died a year ago, bought the Jaguar team and established a motorsports program as the most powerful marketing tool.
Christian Horner praised all departments at Red Bull: “When I arrived, it was clear that Dietrich wanted to compete. He bought Jaguar, which was a permanent seventh in F1, to build a team that neither could have imagined. “It has been a phenomenal 19 years, but we are not looking back, but forward.” Since entering the sport in 2005 they have won six constructors’ titles, their 2022/23 double adding to four consecutive championship wins from 2010 to 2013.
“For Red Bull, for all our partners, it is the sum of an incredible effort from everyone doing their bit to achieve results like the ones we have achieved and, of course, Max is on another level right now; “Today was an incredible performance.” The Dutchman, the next three-time champion, this year had the longest winning streak in the history of F1 (ten, between Miami and Monza), surpassing Vettel’s nine in 2013, also with a Red Bull.
Red Bull’s latest title win came at the home of Honda, a long-time engine partner and owner of the Suzuka circuit which happens to be celebrating its 75th anniversary.
