Horner: We weren’t interested in Alonso

Red Bull Racing has never approached Fernando Alonso to get the Spaniard at Red Bull F1 for the 2008 season team boss Christian Horner said. During the ongoing silly season Alonso was linked various times with Red Bull, probably by his management team to get Renault to cough up more money for Alonso.

"Speculation regarding Fernando was flattering, in that it demonstrates the significant steps that Red Bull Racing has made in a short time to be considered as a viable team by the double world champion," Horner told F1.com.

"However, since we announced our driver line-up in the summer, we have been committed to David and Mark. They did an excellent job for the team in 2007 and remain one of the strongest driver line-ups in F1."
