Horner rules out Hamilton move to Red Bull

Christian Horner has ruled out a move for Lewis Hamilton, with the Briton currently out of contract at the end of the Formula 1 season.

Christian Horner has dismissed any idea of Red Bull making a move to sign seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton.

The Mercedes driver has found himself central to the early driver transfer 'silly season', with speculation mounting about the 38-year-old's next career move.

Mercedes have declared their interest in retaining their championship-winning driver, but their delivery of an uncompetitive car has triggered suspicions that Hamilton could move away from the Brackley-based team.

When asked about the temptation to try and sign the Briton to Red Bull Racing, Team Principal Christian Horner said that they would not be able to make a move happen.

"What Lewis has achieved in Formula 1 is second to none, but we're very happy with the drivers that we have," commented Horner in an interview with Sky Sports F1.

"They're committed as a pair, not only for this season but next season as well. So I can't see where we would be able to accommodate Lewis.

"But I'm sure they [Mercedes] are going to sort their issues out, and we're certainly not writing him off yet."
