RaceFans Round-up: Horner downplays link to “mightily impressive” Cowell


In the round-up: Red Bull team principal Christian Horner played down a suggestion former Mercedes power unit designer Andy Cowell could be a target for their new power unit division.

What they say

Red Bull Powertrains is being formed to run the team’s ex-Honda engines from the 2022 F1 season, but Horner downplayed suggestions Cowell, who stepped down from his role in charge of Mercedes’ hugely successful engine programme last year, was a target for their operation:

Andy Cowell, what he’s achieved in the recent 10 years of the sport has been mightily impressive. And he was obviously a lynchpin of what Mercedes and HPP have delivered.

I think that he’s obviously chosen to pursue other activities outside of Formula 1. But of course he’s, as far as engines are concerned, he’s been the guy that’s delivered year on year on year. But my understanding that his interests currently lie outside of Formula 1.
