Christian Horner shows off new horsepower

Christian Horner has taken advantage of the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix to spend time at home with his family.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner showed off a different type of horsepower during a weekend away from the racetrack, as he enjoyed a day out with his wife Geri.

With the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix cancelled due to deadly flooding in the Italian region, Horner returned home to take some time to be with his family at home.

Taking to social media, the motorsport official shared a photo of himself and Geri on horseback with the caption ‘unexpected weekend off.’

Returning in Monaco next week, Horner will be hoping to see some significant horsepower from Red Bull, as the title-leaders look to continue their 100% win record this season.
