Red Bull Powertrains project "gathering pace" - Horner

Christian Horner has revealed the Red Bull Powertrains project is "gathering pace" ahead of its introduction in F1 next season.

Red Bull is creating the new facility on its campus in Milton Keynes as it prepares to take over Honda's powertrain IP when the Japanese manufacturer withdraws from the sport at the end of the season.

Team principal Horner has previously outlined the advantage of building the facility next to the chassis development building in order to create a fully integrated engineering quota, joining Ferrari as the only team to have engine and chassis development on the same site.

"The Red Bull Powertrains project is gathering pace with every week," said Horner.

"The construction is on target and it’s great to see the building really taking shape. All the roofing is going on and the dyno will start arriving next month."

Horner has also revealed the team will be aiming to attract a younger generation of talent to work within the department, with opportunities for graduates on offer.

"It’s really starting to come together and the effort going into it is impressive," he added.

"We’re attracting some great talent and we also have a strong youth policy to bring in some graduates and students into the programme.

"We want to give youth a chance and are looking for candidates who think differently and come from all spectrums and backgrounds.

"We’ll have a number of scholarships and apprenticeships. It really is a great opportunity and seeing the appeal of this project with the calibre of individuals we’re attracting, is so exciting."

Remember too that Horner was complaining recently that they're a new power train manufacturer and looking for exemptions from regulations and engine freezes.

One thing is manufacturing them as how they are now, another thing is improving the engines. My guess is that they are investing and developing for the 2016 engine changes

True. However, development of the current engines is still continuing, as Honda are still providing updates. And not long ago Red Bull were trying to tell Honda how to design engines and provide them with consultants to help them.

Red Bull want to live off someone else's hard work! They blamed Renault for problems then took the success for themselves. Now they have to come up with the goods themselves. And now they claim that's not fair?
