Ricciardo to Red Bull speculation hots up

Speculation that Daniel Ricciardo will partner Sebastian Vettel at Infiniti Red Bull Racing next season has intensified with German media reporting that the deal is done.

The report says that the announcement of Ricciardo’s graduation will take place at the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend.

Currently in his second season at Red Bull’s junior team Toro Rosso, the Australian has been one of the favourites for the drive since countryman Mark Webber confirmed that he will exit F1 at season’s end.

Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen had been thought to be Ricciardo’s greatest threat for the seat, but is now being linked to Felipe Massa’s drive alongside Fernando Alonso at Ferrari.

Red Bull’s motorsport advisor Helmut Marko confirmed the timing of the Red Bull announcement, but declined to comment further.

“We are not going to make anything known before Spa,” he is quoted as saying.

“I cannot add any more to this.”

The report emphasises Ricciardo’s ability to work alongside Vettel, quoting the 24-year-old on his relationship with the German.

“Sebastian and I have had dinner together a couple of times. I get on well with him,” he said.

Ricciardo, however, added that he is expecting to be able to fight for wins against the three-time reigning champion.

“I also want to win. That’s why I drive Formula 1. I want to be the best”

Ricciardo took part in the Silverstone Young Driver Test for Red Bull last month, lapping just 0.3s shy of Vettel’s best.
