2010 Red Bull to be built around Vettel

Sebastian Vettel

(GMM) Next year's Red Bull will "inevitably" be based on the driving style of Sebastian Vettel, team boss Christian Horner has revealed.

To Germany's Abendzeitung newspaper, Briton Horner denied that the 22-year-old has 'number 1' status alongside his Australian teammate Mark Webber.

"The situation is that both drivers are equipped with absolutely identical material and supported equally," he insisted.

"However with the way Sebastian drives, it is logical for a team to develop its car according to his style. And that will inevitably happen in the (2010) RB6," Horner added.

"Fortunately Mark has a similar style, which makes the development task substantially easier for the team."

With 3.5 points separating Vettel and Webber in the drivers' standings, Horner insists it is too early to favor one over the other for the 2009 title.
