Red Bull Announce New Number 2 Driver

Red Bull have finally decided on their driver to replace Mark Webber, with Daniel Ricciardo being chosen. Australlian Ricciardo will replace fellow Australlian Webber, who has been at Red Bull since 2007. Ricciardo, 24, has been at the Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso for the last two years, will replace Webber at the end of the season.

Red Bull team principal has taken a huge statement of belief in Ricciardo who is believed to be chosen ahead of Finnish driver Raikkonen. Horner had this to say

"He’s got all the attributes that are required to drive for our team. He’s got a great natural ability; he’s a good personality and a great guy to work with.

"Daniel knows what the team expects. He’ll learn quickly and it’s very much a medium- to long-term view that we’re taking in developing him.

"The seat within the team is a wonderful opportunity and I think he’s going to be a big star of the future."

Ricciardo is widely believed to be a firm number two driver, as Red Bull would like to focus there team around their star driver, Vettel.
