I think you're clutching at straws to be honest.
In actual fact it was only one option after they announced that Vergne would be replaced by Verstappen next season. That decision meant Red Bull and Vergne would part ways after this season and an about-turn just wouldn't suit Red Bull.Well, since Red Bull seem to have a policy of only hiring in-house now they only had two options - Kvyat or Vergne. And they've forgotten that Vergne exists.
