F1 boss lays down challenge to Lewis Hamilton promising 'STEP UP' to beat Mercedes GP
Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner has talked up the Milton Keynes-based outfit’s chances to unseat the triple world champions.
This week F1 teams are starting to unveil their brand new cars for the 2017 season – with Horner adding this year's Red Bull is one of the most "beautiful" they have ever built.
He also said the team's pairing of Aussie Daniel Ricciardo and young Dutchman Max Verstappen was the "most exciting" line-up on the grid.
Mercedes GP have been near untouchable for three seasons – failing to win only eight races, losing out five times to Red Bull and three times to Ferrari.
