Oracle Red Bull Racing Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner has been awarded a CBE in King Charles III’s 2024 New Year Honors List, for his services to motorsport.
As a result, 50-year-old Horner has moved one step closer to joining Lewis Hamilton in the league of F1 personnel who have been knighted by the British Royal Family.
Appointed an Officer of the British Empire in 2013, following the Team’s four consecutive double Formula One World Championship title wins, this latest honor elevates Christian to the status of Commander of the Order of the British Empire and again recognizes his achievements in F1 and the wider motorsport industry.
Commenting on the appointment, Oracle Red Bull Racing Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner said:
“It was an unexpected distinction a decade ago to be presented with an OBE and to receive this second award, a CBE, is one for which I am hugely grateful and deeply honored.
“It is a great privilege to lead and work alongside such a phenomenal Team as Oracle Red Bull Racing and also to work in an industry that contributes so much to the United Kingdom’s economy.
“I am enormously proud of what we have achieved with Red Bull in Formul1 1 and in the wider high technology arena, and I am hugely honored to be recognized for that effort.”
