Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo has recently denied rumors regarding a possible move to Scuderia Ferrari from the 2018 Formula One season. It is not the first time the Australian has been mentioned in connection with the Maranello side, but Red Bull consistently reports that it has the 27-year-old under contract for the next two years.
And Osterreich newspaper quotes Daniel Ricciardo as saying: “I definitely want to be in the fastest car if possible, but there’s nothing in my head at the moment.”. However, the former British Formula 3 Champion does admit the fact that Red Bull is currently not able to match the pace of Scuderia Ferrari and Mercedes, who will most likely fight for both Formula 1 titles this year: “At the moment we are not in the fight for the world title.” Ricciardo said, as reported by the national Austrian daily newspaper, based in Vienna.
Many teams plan to bring an important update for the next race, the 2017 Spanish Grand Prix, and the premier energy drink-owned team is no exception: “If we are strong in Barcelona, it could be the turning point.” – Daniel Ricciardo concluded.
Both current Scuderia Ferrari drivers, Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, have contracts available only until the end of the 2017 Formula One season, a situation which has led to many rumors and discussions regading the line-up for the next F1 championship.
