Christian Horner receives hilarious postcard

Three Red Bull employees have been soaking up the sun in Monaco during the summer break.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner was sent a hilarious postcard by some of his employees, in a recent YouTube video posted on the team’s official account.

The video showed three Red Bull pit crew employees enjoying the summer break on a Red Bull speedboat in Monaco, whilst taking part in some water-based activities.

As well as that, the trio were seen playing cards and basking in the sunshine, before reading some newspapers.

They did it all with an open crate of ice cold Red Bull cans at their disposal, keeping them cool.

During the video, all three employees wore matching Red Bull racing attire, including matching helmets.

A postcard to Horner was also sent from the employees during the video, to inform the team principal that they’re having a “lovely summer”.

The postcard was signed off with ‘See you in Zandvoort’.

“Dear Christian, we’re having a lovely summer down here in Monaco,” read the postcard.

“The weather is perfect and we’re getting to kick back and relax. A cold Red Bull tastes even better out on the water. Daniel got the wakeboard out and it’s my turn!”

The summer break, of course, concludes at the end of August with the Dutch Grand Prix, where Max Verstappen will be searching for a third consecutive win at his home race.

He’s been victorious at Zandvoort in 2021 and 2022, with it having become a bit of a fortress for the reigning World Champion.

A win at his home race would be his ninth consecutive win of 2023 and his 11th of the year, something which would see him get almost two hands on a third World Championship.

A Verstappen or Sergio Perez win would see the Milton Keynes-based team extend their own winning streak to 14 races, dating back to the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Red Bull currently lead the Constructors’ Championship by 256 points over Mercedes, whilst Verstappen leads Perez in the Drivers’ Championship by 125 points.

The Dutchman’s lead is so big that he could effectively miss the next five races, and most likely still lead the championship.
