Dietrich Mateschitz is delighted with Red Bull's driver lineup, insisting it is among the very best on the formula one grid.

The team owner's comments follow Mercedes boss Norbert Haug's confession this week that he would like to see Shanghai winner Sebastian Vettel in a McLaren "some day".

German Vettel, 21, is under contract until next year.

"Besides Ferrari, we have with Vettel and Webber absolutely the strongest driver pairing in the field," Mateschitz, 64, told the German newspaper Bild.

And as for rivals' interest in Vettel, the Austrian billionaire added: "At the moment Sebastian is not for sale."
