THE Formula One season is back as Red Bull look to retain their crown in 2023.

Teams have been working tirelessly to improve their cars since the 2022 finale in Abu Dhabi last November.

With the season starting this weekend and teams having already enjoyed pre-season testing, it’s come around quickly.

But, as they say, time flies when you’re having fun.

So the off-season must have gone by in the blink of an eye for Horner.

Less than a month after the season ended, Horner, 49, was at the FIA Prize Giving 2022 awards ceremony.

The Red Bull chief threw on a sleek black tuxedo, with wife – and former Spice Girl – Geri, 50, in a stunning white dress.

He was pictured alongside Red Bull racers Verstappen and Sergio Perez – and their partners – for the black tie bash.

And it was a successful night too, as Horner collected the Constructors’ Championship trophy as Verstappen and Perez picked up their first and third place awards.


On Christmas Eve, Horner, Geri and the kids went out to watch two of their racehorses in training, before spending some time with a little donkey.. how festive.

The next day, the big one… Father Christmas came to visit at home – much to the delight of the three kids.

Geri is mum to Bluebell, 16, and step-mum to Christian’s daughter Olivia, while the pair have one child together – five-year-old Monty.

On New Year’s Day, Christian shared a loved-up snap of himself and Geri soaking up some sun on the beach, looking back on 2022 and ahead to 2023.

Later in January, Geri and Christian dressed up as Star Wars characters to celebrate Monty’s fifth birthday.

Horner himself threw on an impressive Stormtrooper costume, while Geri sported a Jedi outfit with green lightsaber.

Less than a fortnight later, the Red Bull chief was working his way back towards the F1 season when he met Jimmy Fallon as the US TV host challenged Perez to a go-karting race.

Christian and Geri then posed together in front of snow-kissed mountains as they enjoyed a short skiing trip in the Swiss Alps.

And just a day later they were at the Baftas – with Geri even giving out the award for Best Original Score.

I challenged @F1 legend @SChecoPerez to a massive indoor go-kart race. Thanks to our partners at @ford and the boss himself @jimfarley98 for coaching me. I think Christian Horner wants me for @redbullracing. #FordReturns #F1

And just last week, Horner was spotted casting an eye over a stunning limited edition Lamborghini Miura worth £1.7million.

Christian was seen checking out the 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S RHD outside Fiskens historic car dealers in South Kensington, London.

Only 764 were ever built, with one eye-witness revealing: “[Horner] arrived in a black Range Rover with an assistant.

“They went inside then the doors opened and this amazing car came out.

“They went out for a drive and came back. They opened up the boot and then the front and the back, wandered round the car then they went back inside.

“He was clearly thinking of buying it. Why else would you go to Fiskens?

“They are very rare, Lamborghini Miuras. In terms of cars, it’s literally the dream motor.

“Christian used to be a racing driver, and is one of the most successful team managers in the world.

“He’s got Geri on his arm well so is a very successful, rich man.

“But even so he looked in awe of this classy motor. He clearly loved it.”

And now, Horner is in Bahrain for the start of the 2023 F1 season.

But will it be all fun and games on the track, as well as off it?
