Red Bull official Dr Helmut Marko told Diario Sport: “The rumours are wrong. Red Bull is the one who decides about drivers.”

For his part, Sainz is not jumping the gun.

“At the moment I’m still a Renault driver. If Red Bull asks me to come back, that would of course change. I owe Red Bull a lot. The mutual respect is great.

I also have a very good relationship with Helmut Marko. It’s thanks to him that I’m in Formula 1,” he told Auto Motor und Sport.
