Christian Horner is to remain as Red Bull team principal for the foreseeable future after renewing his contract with the reigning world champions.

A team spokesperson confirmed to Reuters that Red Bull have agreed a multi-year extension to Horner’s contract, as their partnership with the Briton prepares to enter its ninth F1 season.

Red Bull entered the sport in 2005 after the Austrian energy drink company took over the Jaguar team, and Horner, 39, has been in charge throughout, leading them to championship doubles in each of the last three seasons.

Red Bull continue with the unchanged driver line-up of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber for 2013 and the team’s new car, the RB9, will be launched at their UK factory in Milton Keynes this Sunday, February 3.
