Christian Horner says he is 100 per cent sure Max Verstappen will stay with Red Bull in 2020. The Dutchman already has a contract for next year, but there have been rumours of contact between Mercedes boss Toto Wolff and Verstappen's management.
Mercedes made attempts to sign Verstappen in 2017, but the Dutchman opted to pen a long-term deal with Red Bull.
Both Verstappen and Wolff played down recent suggestions – made by Red Bull advisor Dr Helmut Marko – that the pair had been in regular contact, and Horner sees no reason for concern.
"Max has a contract, so everything is fine," Red Bull team principal Horner said.
"I am 100 per cent sure he will drive for our team next year."
