Horner re-affirms commitment to Red Bull

Christian Horner says he wouldn't be interested in moving to Ferrari and is fully committed to Red Bull
Team boss Christian Horner has re-affirmed his commitment to the Red Bull Racing team and insisted he has no interest in leaving to take up a role elsewhere.

Horner has helped to lead Red Bull to the championship title for the past two seasons, with the Milton Keynes-based team hoping to secure a hat-trick this year with the new RB8.

While Red Bull enjoyed a solid start to the new season in Australia, rivals Ferrari were off the pace with its new car with the pressure building on the team to get up to speed if it wants to contend for the title.

Failure to secure any silverware again this season would heap added pressure of Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali but Horner said he wouldn't be interested in the Ferrari role if Domenicali did lose his position.

“Ferrari is a great team but my future is absolutely committed to Red Bull for the foreseeable future,” he was quoted by the Daily Mail. “You can see what the appeal is at Ferrari but you can also see the pitfalls and my commitment is to Red Bull. Dietrich Materschitz gave me the chance as a 31-year-old to step into Formula One and entrusted me to build a team for him.

“I feel very much part of the team and I have no burning desire within me to go and work at Ferrari. I am happy where I am. I have a multi-year commitment.”

Probably because it's a non-story. A team principle says he's not interested in a position that is not available anyway. Really, what's the point?
