Horner relaxed about Ricciardo contract

Christian Horner says he is not worried about losing Daniel Ricciardo to a rival team.

When Red Bull launched its 2016 livery earlier this week, Australian Ricciardo warned that while his hopes are modest for the new year, he is also keen to keep the momentum in his career that looked set to skyrocket in 2014.

Another middling season for Red Bull could therefore cost the team the smiling 26-year-old.

But boss Horner told France's L'Equipe: "I'm very relaxed with regards to the contracts that we have with our drivers, be they short, medium or long term.

"It's up to us to provide them with a car that allows them to demonstrate their talent," he acknowledged.
