Christian Horner REJECTED an offer from Ferrari to replace Mattia Binotto as team principal – with the Red Bull chief not interested in a change of scenery… clearing the way for Fred Vasseur to take on Formula One’s poisoned chalice

Christian Horner rejected the chance to become team principal of Ferrari, leaving the way clear on Tuesday for Frenchman Fred Vasseur to pick up Formula One’s most poisoned chalice. Sportsmail can confirm Red Bull boss Horner was approached by the Scuderia, who were keen to lever him away from the reigning world championship team he has run since 2005, to replace Mattia Binotto who ‘resigned’ last month. Although the Englishman is the sport’s longest-serving team principal he did not fancy a change of scene, certainly not at Ferrari’s Maranello HQ. Seidl will be replaced by Italian Andrea Stella, executive racing director at McLaren since 2019.
