And although fully aware that the team will only know how good a job they have done when the car hits the track in Bahrain, Horner believes that Red Bull are taking things to the limit ahead of the 2024 season.
“I think as far as targets can be, yes,” he told PlanetF1 when asked if the RB20 was on track to hit the team's targets.
“We don’t have a lot of pre-season testing these days, we’ve got a lot to focus on and to get done, but it’s always a busy time of year in the factory in the planning stage for the season ahead.”
“There are always challenges along the way," he said on the subject of any hiccups behind the scenes. "But if you’re not on the limit, you’re not trying hard enough.”
“Hopefully, we’re making progress,” he added. “But the stopwatch never lies and we’ll only see when we get to the track.”
