Helping to create opportunities and career pathways for people who aspire to work within the football industry is another important tranche of their work that I’m proud to support by hosting this year’s Raise Your Game conference.”

Vice Sports sits down with Christian Horner

“I’m probably unemployable in any other area.” Vice Sports recently sat down for a frank chat with Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner who opened up about his career and younger years; “I’ve grown up in motorsport since I was 12 or 13 years of age; I’ve never been on a management training course. I had an agreement with my parents that I could take a year out before going to university – I still haven’t gone, so maybe I could try that?”

We doubt Christian will be enrolling any time soon but find out what else was said in his interview here.

RED BULL WELCOME TAKEOVER OF FORMULA ONE BY LIBERTY MEDIA

Red Bull Racing has called on Formula One’s new owners Liberty Media to make the sport more broadly accessible following completion of a deal that values the sport at £6bn.

Christian Horner welcomed the deal, and the decision to retain 85-year-old Bernie Ecclestone as chief executive for a transitional period. He hopes this change will give the sport a chance to address major challenges.

Horner said: “I think F1 is guilty of being too complex, the regulations are hugely intricate, so the key factor is it needs to be kept simple,” he said.

“The casual viewer needs to tune in and follow and understand without having to be a specialist in DRS or energy recovery systems. I think we need to go back to basics son some of these regulations.”

“Serial winning in sport is never popular, and fans aren’t going to engage if they know what the outcome of a race is going to be. ”
