Ferrari’s secret ambitions to rope in Red Bull’s team principal Christian Horner suffered a blow after the Briton was revealed to have extended his contract with the current world champions.

The Italian team was rumoured to replace incumbent Stefano Domenicali from his post with Horner.

"How could Christian be negotiating in Maranello if we've just extended his contract until 2017?" Red Bull’s motorsport advisor Helmut Marko told Sport Bild when asked about speculation relating to Horner’s future.

Since 2005, Ferrari has claimed one drivers’ and constructors’ championship, while Red Bull has sealed both the titles in the last three seasons.

The 47-year-old Domenicali has been Ferrari’s team principal since 2008.

Horner, 39, has been with Red Bull since it stepped in to Formula 1 in 2005. A confirmation of the duration of his extended tenure has not been officially disclosed.

Reuters reported that a team spokeswoman said that it was only a multi-year extension.
