Christian Horner Dismisses Claims of Red Bull Struggling with 2026 Engine Project
Christian Horner has dismissed speculation that Red Bull’s complaints about the 50/50 power split in the design of the 2026 engines stem from the team being in a difficult situation. Recently, there have been voices of discontent regarding the power regulations agreed upon by Formula 1, with concerns raised about the impact of the 50/50 split between engine and battery power on the cars’ performance.
Horner, leading the criticism, fears that the need to recharge batteries midway through a lap will prevent drivers from racing flat-out. He has called for a reevaluation of the regulations, referring to the potential creation of “Frankenstein” technology in Formula 1.
