Lewis Hamilton 'was very keen to join Red Bull' as Christian Horner admits snub backfired


“I encouraged Niki to spend the money as Lewis was wavering a little bit. It would be fair to say that backfired on me.”

By the time Hamilton headed to Mercedes in 2013, Red Bull star Sebastian Vettel was already on a streak of three consecutive world titles, and would go on to win his fourth that season. 

However, the lifespan of Red Bull’s success was just coming to an end and Mercedes, armed with Hamilton and fellow superstar Nico Rosberg, came roaring back. 

Incredibly, the Brit has won six of his seven world titles with the Silver Arrows, with all of that enviable haul coming in a nine-season span.
