Red Bull complete Daniel Ricciardo move
Monday 02 September 2013
Red Bull have confirmed Daniel Ricciardo will drive for the team next season, replacing Mark Webber.
The 24-year-old Australian moves to Red Bull from sister team Toro Rosso, whom he joined in 2010 as a test driver before graduating to a race seat at the start of last year.
Ricciardo emerged as one of the front-runners for the seat alongside reigning triple world champion Sebastian Vettel in June, after his compatriot Webber announced his intention to retire at the end of the season and move into sports car racing.
The Red Bull team principal, Christian Horner, said: “It gives me great pleasure to announce that our new driver for the 2014 season with Infinity Red Bull Racing will be Daniel Ricciardo.”
