Horner denies Newey to Ferrari rumours

Horner denies Newey to Ferrari rumours

Christian Horner is confident Adrian Newey won't be leaving Red Bull despite Ferrari's reported attempts to lure the technical guru to Maranello.

At last weekend's Spanish Grand Prix, rumours swept through the paddock claiming that Ferrari are yet again seeking to bring Newey over to the Scuderia.

These rumours were given weight when the 55-year-old refused to commit his future to Red Bull Racing.

"I don't know. I need to think about it," he told Sky Sports when asked about his long-term future. "We're in the middle of the season and I'm just getting on with it."

But while Newey may not be certain about his future, Red Bull team boss Horner is very clear about where the technical guru will be next season.

"There's always rumours, isn't there?" Horner asked The Guardian. "It's the silly season.

"We're all under contract, so at some point I've got to think about the future, but my focus at the moment is trying to get back on top of those silver cars.

"It is an annual thing that there is speculation about Adrian's future but he has made his feelings clear to me about the team.

"He has paternal feelings towards the team and he is much more involved than he has been, and he enjoys the environment he works in.

"You can understand why Ferrari would be looking. Adrian has always enjoyed a challenge."
