Christian Horner is not ruling out Yuki Tsunoda being promoted to the main Red Bull team in the future.
The Japanese driver is having a strong season for RB, where he has out-shined experienced team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.


However, whilst the Australian’s name has consistently been linked to re-joining Red Bull – potentially in place of under-performing Sergio Perez – Tsunoda has not, despite his better performances.

As pressure mounts on the Mexican driver, RB reserve Liam Lawson has also been touted as an option. The New Zealander acquitted himself well during a five-race stint last season when he deputised for the injured Ricciardo.


However, unlike his colleagues, Tsunoda has seldom been linked to graduating to Max Verstappen’s team-mate.

“We have options for multiple years on him because we believe he’s a talent.”

Horner is keen to highlight the Japanese driver’s play this season, which Ricciardo did Tsunoda won 13th and finished 10th from -RB, for his part, he started from 15th.

“I think Yuki has done a great job”, he is 50 years old for Daniel, he likes having an experienced driver and how they interact with the team and engineers ” Not Yuki. I’m not a rookie anymore.

He has gained significant experience now, and it is evident that he is utilizing it effectively. Despite the challenging conditions, I believe he performed very well in today’s race.
