Horner doesn't want Bernie's job

Monday 17-February-2014 12:24

Christian Horner has reiterated his stand that he won't be the one to replace Bernie Ecclestone.

With Eccleston's position as head of Formula One suffered a blow when he was indicted by a German court on charges of bribery.

The 83-year-old subsequently stepped down from his role on the board but has remained in charge of the day-to-day running of Formula One.

However, should Ecclestone be found guilty, he faced a prison sentence meaning someone else is going to have to run F1.

That someone, though, won't be Red Bull team boss Horner.

"I would never consider taking on Bernie's role," the Brit said in an exclusive interview with SportBusiness International.

"My function and commitment is to Red Bull, and I certainly hope that Bernie will continue for another 20 years. It is in all our interests if he does.

"Bernie is still very much alive and in control of Formula One."
