Red Bull boss Christian Horner has confirmed the team are not looking to bring Sebastian Vettel back for a second stint.
As a partnership, Vettel and Red Bull enjoyed considerable success, but Horner is focused on future rather than looking back at what has been.
“Sebastian is a great driver and what we achieved together was huge - those four back-to-back consecutive championships," Horner told the Sky Sports F1 Show. "He’s obviously made his decision to leave Ferrari, that’s his choice.
"I’m sure he’s thought very long and hard about it, but we’re very happy with the driver line-up we have in place, and Alex [Albon] was getting stronger throughout last year. We have Max [Verstappen] on a long-term contract and our ideal is to continue with those two drivers, not just for the next season but beyond that into 2021."
