Christian Horner has again denied rumours Sebastian Vettel is off to Ferrari, saying he’ll be a Red Bull driver for the “foreseeable future.”

Earlier this week, rumours of Vettel’s pending move to the Italian stable gathered momentum when Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali spoke glowingly of the German.

He added that he believes Vettel and Fernando Alonso could “easily coexist” at Ferrari.

Horner, though, is adamant that won’t happen any time soon as Vettel is “very happy” where he is.

“I think a question was asked whether anybody could ever imagine Sebastian driving a Ferrari, and what are they supposed to say? No?” the Red Bull team boss told Sky Sports F1.

“Sebastian is really happy in the team, he’s an important part of this team and he will be driving one of our cars for the foreseeable future.

“There’s always going to be speculation regarding drivers and movements of drivers and contracts, which always remain totally confidential.”
