  • Red Bull explain why they won't try to sign Alonso

"I've got huge respect for Fernando, he is a great driver, a fantastic driver, but it's very hard to see [him joining Red Bull] and he's tended to cause a bit of chaos wherever he's gone", Horner told F1's official podcast Beyond the Grid. "He feels Renault are in the ascendancy".

Speaking the day the Ricciardo news broke, Horner said his team did not need to be rushed into a decision. "If you look at the rational reasons for that, it's hard to understand".

Horner also discusses his own racing career, his rise to the role of Team Principal of Red Bull and the time he was quizzed by the Queen about the "Multi 21" controversy between Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

But a strength can also be a weakness and Horner believes Verstappen's prowess was a critical factor in Ricciardo's shock decision to depart and partner Nico Hulkenberg at Renault next year.

'The competition between he and Max is intense. Max is growing stronger and stronger.

'Personally I felt it was a time now where it is good for me to move on and have a fresh start somewhere else and I think it will be healthy for me, ' he said.

"Daniel had his reasons".

"I think it comes back to wanting to take on, in his words, a new challenge".

"It's not that they were treated in any way different".

"They would have equal status, as they have always had".

Chelsea, Real Madrid agree to Thibaut Courtois deal
Chelsea will always have a special place in my heart. "I find his style and ideas very attractive". If he leaves it's going to be sad for us because he is a great keeper".

"I can't help but feel that was perhaps a large part of Daniel's decision". I could understand if it was to Ferrari or Mercedes, but it's an enormous risk at this stage of his career.

"He's tended to cause a bit of chaos wherever he's gone".

"Both of those guys [Sainz and Gasly] are very quick drivers so I think this just gives us an opportunity to take a breath".

Red Bull's complicity even extended to offering Ricciardo a short-term deal in case Mercedes or Ferrari sought his services for 2020.

'But I think it still wasn't enough, it wasn't about money, it wasn't about status, it wasn't about position or commitment or duration, ' he said. "If someone's heart is not really in it..."

"It might be an inspired choice, it might be one that he regrets".

"I thought he was winding me up to be honest with you", said Horner.

"It then became very clear that was his choice and you have to respect that".

Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso have highly rated Frenchman Pierre Gasly in their ranks who could step up in Ricciardo's place.
