Red Bull team principal Christian Horner downplayed speculation that Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix winner Mark Webber might move on to Ferrari next season.

The 35-year-old Australian's eighth career victory, his second around Monte Carlo, took him to joint second on points with team-mate Sebastian Vettel, with the duo three adrift of title leader Fernando Alonso in his Ferrari.

It has long been mooted that this will be Webber's final season, but as he has been linked with Ferrari as replacement for Felipe Massa, he could yet be lured to Maranello for an F1 swansong. But Horner warned: "Why would he want to leave? He is comfortable. The team know Mark very well and he knows the team ... a lot depends on his motivation and desire going forward, which at the moment looks very clear."
