This is the F1 driver Hamilton apparently fears the most

Red Bull will give a first glimpse of their new Honda-powered RB15 Formula One vehicle next week on the same day that world champion Lewis Hamilton's 2019 Mercedes breaks cover at Silverstone.

Red Bull are starting their first season with new engine partner Honda after ending an often-fractious relationship with Renault, and Horner said he expects them to move forward from past year, when they won four races but were usually "in the void between Mercedes and Ferrari and the rest".

"I do not think we can immediately compete with Ferrari and Mercedes in terms of power, but Honda is doing everything it can to get there as fast as possible", said Verstappen. "I think he's probably the driver that they fear the most".

Horner said the years would eventually take their toll on Hamilton and Vettel and saw Verstappen, now the main man at the team after Australian Daniel Ricciardo left for Renault, as heir apparent.

"As we saw past year, the impact of those penalties at the right venues can be fairly minimal". He is worldlier, more experienced.

Verstappen hit the headlines after Brazil, when he was ordered to do two days' public service for shoving French driver Esteban Ocon after the collision.

Thai-born Alexander Albon raced in the shadows of the top two British drivers in Formula 2 last season, but has earned his big chance alongside Kvyat. Not that he was particularly impressed by Formula E, but he came way from being with the stewards and said: "'Crikey, these guys have got hard decisions to make in terms of do they impose a penalty or do they not'". "Whether you penalise or not.' I think that was actually a useful exercise for him to see the other side of the fence", said Horner.

"There are three teams that stand out from the rest of the field: Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull".

"Charles is a really exciting talent".

Honda's target is to start the new season ahead of Renault and work to reduce its deficit to F1's benchmark manufacturers over the course of the year.

While relations between Red Bull and previous engine partner Renault collapsed into acrimony, Horner has faith that the relationship with Honda will not play out in a similar way. "[We have been in] very much a customer supplier relationship where effectively we were paying for a first class ticket and you get an economy seat".

"An bad lot of frustration was born out of that.so I think with Honda, it being a true technical partnership, there's much more collective responsibility from both sides rather than being a customer-supplier scenario".

Having entered F1 in late-2017 with the junior team, Gasly's only race experience in F1 comes with the Italian outfit.
