Will Alonso replace Ricciardo at Red Bull? (2nd Update)
Horner says Alonso causes 'chaos' in a team, yeah it's likely he would destroy Horner's 'pet' driver Verstappen
UPDATE This rumor is downgraded to 'false' today. Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has ruled out signing Fernando Alonso as Daniel Ricciardo's replacement on the grounds that the two-time world champion has caused "chaos" wherever he has driven.
Ricciardo shocked Red Bull last week by announcing he would leave the team for Renault at the end of the season. The news leaves a vacancy at the four-time world champions alongside Max Verstappen, and Horner says he is in no rush to confirm Ricciardo's replacement.
However, he was able to rule out Alonso, who is currently making his own mind up about his F1 future at his current team McLaren.
