Geri Horner, 49, said she was so proud of her husband, Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner, after his team secured the Formula One World Championship. Max Verstappen triumphed, beating former champion, Lewis Hamilton.
After Red Bull’s triumph, Geri stood alongside her husband and chatted to the press.

Beaming, the Spice Girls hitmaker said: “I am just really proud of him, I’m proud of the whole team, Max.

“I mean, it is testimony to what a great team they are. Great strategy, Max is brilliant, Checo [Sergio Pérez] was amazing.
“And of course I think they have got the best Team Principal.”

Christian then grabbed his wife and hugged her tightly.

The interviewer asked her how tough this year had been for Christian.
She continued: “Well, forgive me for being this honest, but I have to say, Christian told me this has been the toughest year he has ever experienced.

“But, they are such a good team who pull together.”

Christian then thanked his wife for all her support, to which she gushed: “I am just really proud of him.”
The singer looked polished in her trademark all-white outfit.

She wore a satin high-neck blouse with white trousers and paired the look with a cream cardigan with a brown trim.

She accessorised with a white over-the-shoulder bag and pulled her statement red hair back with a white headband.
Before the race began, Geri uploaded a video from the Abu Dhabi track wishing the whole Red Bull team the best of luck.

She said in view of her 1.1 million Instagram followers: “I wanna wish Max, Checo, Christian, the whole Red Bull team all the best, because they deserve it.”

Following the dramatic final, Geri shared a snap of Christian holding the trophy with the caption: “So proud of you.”

Geri has had a difficult time of late after her older brother, Max, suddenly died just weeks ago.
Aged just 54, Max collapsed at his Hertfordshire home and was rushed to Watford General Hospital.  

He died a week later on November 23. His cause of death remains undisclosed.

An insider told The Sun: “This is the most awful, devastating, heartbreaking news and Geri is utterly broken by it.

“It has been a terribly traumatic time since the moment she heard Max had been taken to hospital, and the worst outcome which everybody close to the family hoped might not be.

“They are all rallying together but she barely knows what to say or think just now – she loved him dearly.”
