Red Bull’s team principal Christian Horner has been awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) in the Queen’s birthday honours list. Horner, 39, has been recognised for his services to motorsport.

"I'm naturally shocked," the Englishman was quoted as saying by Reuters. "To be in the company of men and women who have achieved such great things for the country is something very, very special.”

Horner has been in charge of Red Bull since the team’s debut in 2005 and has led them to the constructors’ and drivers’ championship double in each of the last three years.

“This is right up there with what I have achieved in motorsport," he added.

Red Bull and their reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel currently lead the 2013 team and driver standings.
