Daniel Ricciardo Might Drive a Ferrari in 2019

Horner warns Ricciardo off Ferrari switch Max Verstappen can change and not lose magic, says Christian Horner

Ricciardo is out of contract at Red Bull at the end of the season and has expressed an interest in joining teams like Mercedes or Ferrari to help him challenge for the championship.

"I have only had talks with Red Bull - since a year ago we have been open with each other", said Ricciardo when asked in the pre-race press conference whom he has spoken to regarding a 2019 seat. It's been 10 years since I was in Red Bull junior team.

"That's not true, I can say that", Ricciardo said on Thursday when asked about the reports. Even past year we were pretty open with each other, I think through the media they are interested in keeping me. We have had some talks regarding that. "I'm aware of other reports, but there hasn't been anything else, they're not true, at least up until now". Ricciardo will be out of contact at the end of this season as will be Kimi Raikkonen, who is team-mate to Vettel.

Ricciardo has also been linked to Mercedes as a possible partner for Britain's four-time championship victor Lewis Hamilton.


Ricciardo has previously said he does not want his next Formula One contract to tie him down.

Being in a team with Hamilton would be a "good challenge", he added.

Ricciardo is free of his contract at Red Bull after 2018, and with Ferrari's stronger record (since 2015), Maranello looks ready to knock Mercedes off the throne. It is alleged that driver and team have agreed not to negotiate with other parties until June 30, with money changing hands as part of the accord. "If it's only Red Bull (interested), then that's where I'm at". "If I did move on I'd obviously want to make sure it was something that I feel would be potentially better". But at some point you've got to weigh up what does what, regardless, there will always be something.

"The real requirement is to try and put myself in a position to win a world title", Ricciardo said. "I'll always show love nonetheless!" "The most obvious is Carlos Sainz". "It doesn't mean where I am now is not that place, but I think that's why I'm trying to take my time with it is because it's still too early. I'm not necessarily concerned about the sport or where it's going, for me, personally, thinking about 2021 now seems like a long time away".
