Yes the deal was long dusted and confirmed. I think that the notion behind the post was more based on Horner's refusal to allow Danny to test for Renault after season end (as with any other team releasing drivers, such as Ferrari allowing Sauber to use Kimi, Williams allowing Stroll at FI etc etc down pitlane)

Perhaps it was thought by Horner that Renault might pay an extra fee to Red Bull for the early release from Danny's RBR Contract early to allow him to test.

In reality Horner was just being his usual arrogant obnoxious self righteous and unpleasant lowlife self that we expect from him. ("Danny has a contract with RBR until 31st December blah blah blah".) So did all the other drivers released to their new teams without issue.

Aaahhh, but of course.
I thought the ink had already dried on the new contract but hadn't taken into consideration when the old one expired. Thank you.
