With three, going on  four consecutive years of Formula 1 world titles now under his belt, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner’s next big challenge will be fatherhood.

It emerged on Wednesday that the 39-year-old Briton and partner Beverley are expecting to be parents.

“I’m not the first one this has happened to,” he smiled to Auto Motor und Sport. “I’m very happy about it – it’s going to mix things up!”

Elsewhere in F1, beating Horner to fatherhood was Williams driver Pastor Maldonado, who has been back-and-forth between Europe and his native Venezuela in past weeks to check on his heavily pregnant partner Gaby.

Baby Victoria was born early on Friday, while 2012 Spanish Grand Prix winner Maldonado was readying for Friday practice at Monza. ‘Victoria’ is the Spanish take on the word ‘victory’. (GMM)

    Yes now Pastor stole his baby thunder, BCTB :D. Does the world suddenly revolve around Horner? Jebus! I hope he doesn’t get twins or even a second baby. Who will be baby nr1 and nr2 :p? Hope he is a bit more honest and sincere with his children than with his drivers though. He always speaks with a split tongue like the ancient serpent.
