Red Bull confirms Horner

Christian Horner has been appointed as the Sporting Director of Red Bull Racing. The news was confirmed a few minutes ago by the Austrian drinks company although confirmation of Gunther Steiner as the new technical director has not yet been made. The news is a blow to Jaguar's former management Tony Purnell and David Pitchforth.

Horner is expected to begin work at Milton Keynes later today.
