Jackie Stewart, the three-time world champion, holds Christian Horner in high regard. He attributes Red Bull Racing’s significant achievements to Horner, the team boss since 2005.

“Terrific year, wonderful year,” Stewart commented on PlanetF1.com. At 84, the Brit is in awe of Horner’s leadership at Red Bull Racing. “Remarkable for Red Bull,” he said.

Horner, according to Stewart, is a “very good man.” He emphasized the importance of management in motorsport, calling Horner the current “capital” of the sport.

Sir Stewart, who was knighted in 2001, praised Horner for doing an “amazingly good job.” He also commended Max Verstappen, making Red Bull Racing a formidable team. But, Stewart doesn’t label Verstappen, the 26-year-old Dutchman, as the best driver yet.

That title, according to Stewart, belongs to Argentine Juan Manuel Fangio. Fangio, a five-time Formula 1 world champion, is unbeatable in Stewart’s eyes. “Mr. Fangio for me will never be beaten,” he stated.

Stewart described Fangio as the “greatest man of all time,” praising his dignity and style. He also mentioned the honor of carrying Fangio to his final resting place. Fangio passed away in 1995.

Stewart concluded with a hint of unpredictability, saying, “we’ll see what happens in the future.”
