Christian Horner insists both Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel will both have Red Bull’s full support right to the very end of the season.

Unlike last season when Vettel dominated the Championship, this year both Red Bull drivers are in the thick of things.

With 225 points still to play for, Webber is second in the standings, 40 points behind Fernando Alonso, while Vettel is third, a further two points back.

However, unlike rival teams, Red Bull insist they will not implement team orders in one driver’s favour.

“We gave both drivers the opportunity to go for the title (in 2010), and it came down to that final race in Abu Dhabi and it will be very much the same this year,” said Horner.

“Both drivers are fully in the race for the Championship. They both know they need each other to take points off Fernando as well.”
