Home Latest News Daniel Ricciardo Succeeds Mark Webber at Red Bull

Red Bull RB9I do not think there has ever been so much speculation as to a driver change in Formula One prior to this. Red Bull are the current world champions making them a force to be reckoned with in the paddock. Factor in that they have won the last 3 championships in a row and you will begin to see why Mark Webber’s vacant seat is one of desire. So just who will be replacing him for 2014?

Kimi Raikkonen? Fernando Alonso? Nope… The seat on the opposite side of the garage to Vettel belongs to Torro Rosso driver Daniel Ricciardo who graduates from the junior team, and quite rightly so. I have personally seen this chap race at Silverstone in Formula Renault and out on track in a competitive car he is very impressive. The question is how will he cope with the pressure of not only being in a top team, but also having Sebastian Vettel as a team mate?

It is said that Kimi was a strong candidate but his chances of a Red Bull drive were eroded away by his ultra-high salary expectations.
