Horner and Ricciardo deny Webber remarks on 2014 seat 26 August, 2013 Christian Horner with Daniel Ricciardo Christian Horner and Daniel Ricciardo have denied Mark Webber’s affirmation that the decision about his 2014 successor has already been made by the Red Bull camp. Obviously referring to his young compatriot Ricciardo, Le Mans-bound Webber said just before Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix that the news is “good for him and good for Australia”. Red Bull team boss Horner, however, hit back: “I have never known a driver [to] sign another driver. “We have not yet made a decision,” he insisted, according to Express newspaper. The British broadcaster Sky said at Spa-Francorchamps on Sunday, however, that Ricciardo has indeed been signed, with the news to be announced within days. Horner also denied that. “We will take a couple of weeks to think things over,” he insisted. “It’s not a football transfer window, so no rush,” he told the BBC. 24-year-old Ricciardo also denied Webber’s news. “He really said that?” the Toro Rosso driver was quoted on Sunday by Russia’s Formula 1news.ru. “We all know Mark – he likes to make predictions, sometimes they are right, sometimes they’re not. It’s nice that he supports me, so I take his words as a compliment. “But I’m sure if I had a contract, I would know about it. I don’t think we’re going to have to wait long for the team, but I still haven’t heard anything,” added Ricciardo. (GMM.) Subbed by AJN.

I hope the seat does go to Ricciardo. He’s raced well and time for some new blood at the top. Vredeling Agreed. Ricciardo is fast, constistent, and a nice guy good with the press. He deserves to show what he’s capable of in a good car. Vettel may very well get a lot more pressure from Daniel then people may expect at present. This is why the whole Red Bull Junior team was created, give him a shot. If Kimi wants to move he can always go to Ferrari or McLaren =El Presidente= Ricciardo will be a good obedient second driver. the fan RB will sign Ricciardo… after the sparks of that Web-Seb pairing, that idiot marko wouldnt want another one of those. they simply needs to protect seb in that team, or they would loose him to Ferrari in the near future. poor Daniel… M451 Kimi to Mclaren…pretty please… KC “Ricciardo will be a good obedient second driver.” Just like Rosberg. And Grosjean. And Massa.
