When asked about solid speculation linking Renault engines and test driver Heikki Kovalainen with the team next year, Red Bull principal Christian Horner told Speed TV: ‘We’re not going to train up drivers for other teams.’

Without further ado, then, current Ferrari racer Felipe Massa’s name dropped into the hat. ‘He’s a talented kid,’ said Horner, ‘and another driver that depends on the whole Kimi-Michael scenario.’

More fuel for the speculation-jets ? No, this time I am not going to write “what this move could potentially mean” saga. But if you have any thoughts, go ahead and post them here.

Christian HornerAs reported on ITV-F1

“It is probable that we will only continue with one of our current drivers,” Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner was quoted as saying in Motorsport News. “The driver market is pretty fluid this year.”

“Christian is in his third year of F1 and he is not a rookie any more. “He has got an experienced team-mate in David and he needs to tidy up elements of performance such as his inconsistency.”

Horner recently indicated that he plans to renew Coulthard’s contract for 2007. “He and I get along very well and if the relationship is working and it’s right why stop it? He is tremendously fit and let’s not forget Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill were older than he was when they won their world championships.”

Who needs more hints than this about who is going to get axed next season ??
