Red Bull’s Formula 1 team principal Christian Horner has been recognized by Her Majesty, Queen Elisabeth II, in the monarch’s birthday list.

Horner has been Red Bull’s team principal since 2005. He led them to the last three world constructors’ titles and also helped German driver Sebastian Vettel win three successive individual crowns.

“I’m naturally shocked,” said Horner after he was awarded an OBE for services to motorsport. “It’s all a bit unexpected, incredible really.

“To be in the company of men and women who have achieved such great things for the country is something very, very special. This is right up there with what I have achieved in motorsport.” (Reuters)
