  Red Bull chief Christian Horner believes the 2019 Formula 1 season is “very much a Mercedes championship” following the German manufacturer’s “exceedingly dominant” start to the year.

  “I think it’s very much a Mercedes championship, you can see after five races they are three points off a maximum score,” Horner said following the Spanish Grand Prix.
