Christian Horner excited to see how F1's young guns develop

This season Formula 1 has seen a number of young guns come into the sport and excel in their racing seats. Red Bull's Christian Horner believes that this is good for the sport and that the future of Formula 1 is in a good place. 

"It's great for F1," Horner said to the BBC when asked about the number of young drivers on the grid. "You can never stop time and it's clear to see some great talent emerging in Formula 1 at the moment - with Max having established himself, Leclerc is doing a great job.

"Lando Norris has done a good job in a McLaren this year. I'm sure George Russell is right there but the equipment [at Williams] doesn't allow him to show that.

"F1 can be excited about the potential of those guys. But it's also great to see the young guns go up against the established guys as well - the Hamiltons and the Vettels. We have a great period in time where you just hope equipment allows those guys to race hard and competitively with each other."

Verstappen has proved that experience in Formula 1 is not as vital as what might be thought and Horner may have a difficult decision to make if he wants another youngster to take over from Pierre Gasly.
