Christian Horner has dismissed suggestions that Sebastian Vettel might be entertaining offers from rival teams, but intriguingly would only confirm that the German would remain at Red Bull in 2015.
It would not be surprising if Vettel was at least seeing what might be available, as obviously he wants to be back in a winning car soon.
“Usually it’s the start of the silly season where he’s either going to Ferrari or Eric [Boullier] has made him a big offer or maybe going to Mercedes,” said Horner. “So, we just wait to see which team it’s going to be. But no, Sebastian’s absolutely committed to the team, there’s no doubt at all that he’ll be with Red Bull next year and he’s enjoyed so much success with the team, he’s happy in the team and the team are very happy with him.
“We know we’ve got a lot to do. None of us are comfortable or happy with the situation that we’re currently in – but we’re in it together and we’ll work our way through it.”
