Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner has confirmed that the Milton Keynes based outfit has no intention of leaving Formula One saying over the Monaco Grand Prix weekend that team win together and lose together.

The four time world champions have struggled in the early stages of the 2015 Formula One season compared to rivals Mercedes and Ferrari which led to some people suggesting that Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz was considering selling the team and walking away from Formula One. There have been persistent rumours that Audi were going to buy into the team.

In the build up to last weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix Audi confirmed that they have absolutely no intention to enter into Formula One.

The German manufacturer are already heavily involved in the World Endurance Championship and the German Touring Car Championship and this is one of the reasons why the company have decided not to pursue a Formula One project.

Infiniti Red Bull Racing have a contract in place with Renault until the end of next season and they also have a long term agreement with luxury car brand Infiniti.

The team are working extremely hard with Renault and this is beginning to bear fruit as Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo finished the Monaco Grand Prix in fourth and fifth place respectively. Red Bull are currently in fourth place in the Constructors championship on 52 points.
