For the time being, Formula One's fastest team has no intention of considering installing a KERS system.

Four teams began the 2009 season with the controversial energy re-use technology, but at Silverstone last weekend only the Ferraris still boasted power-boost buttons.

Red Bull, like Williams and Force India, were always considering introducing KERS later this season, but RBR designer Adrian Newey is now stepping back from that possibility.

"At the moment, no," the Briton answered when asked by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport if KERS is on the agenda.

"With Webber we would be over the weight limit, so we could only use KERS with Vettel and it doesn't make sense to race two different cars.

"You could no longer directly compare (the cars) and would learn nothing," Newey added.
