Red Bull won't rest on their laurels

They have just won a hat-trick of Championships, but Red Bull have warned the rest of the grid that they "are never satisfied".


After wrapping up their third consecutive Constructors' Championship in Austin, the Milton Keynes squad picked up more silverware at the season finale in Brazil as Sebastian Vettel won the Drivers' title for the third year in a row.

Team principal Christian Horner says the squad will learn from the mistakes they made this year and will improve in 2013.

"We've got such a strong group, we can always learn," he said.

"We've learned a lot of lessons this year and we'll look to apply them, and that's one of the strengths of this team.

"We are never satisfied. We're always looking inwards, whether that's the drivers, engineers, or technicians.

"It is in all the different departments. It is that spirit and desire that has kept us at the top for three years."

While Red Bull and Vettel dominated the 2011 season, things were a lot more difficult this campaign as they had a few mechanical problems while the likes of Ferrari and McLaren also put up a much better fight.

Horner rates their 2012 success as their best and also heaped praise on Vettel.

"This is by far our biggest achievement as a team ever," he said. "We were restrained last week [when winning the Constructors' Championship] as we thought the job was only half done.

"It's been a tough week, but everyone's kept their focus, kept their nerve.

"And what we were faced with here in the rain could not have been more stressful.

"It's not just about today though; it's about the season as whole - all 20 races.

"It's ebbed and flowed and we've fought our way back into it. Sebastian, in particular, has never given up.

"He really wanted this Championship. He's driven with great determination and it doesn't ever get any easier."
