Daniel Ricciardo is all but confirmed, after Red Bull team adviser, Dr. Helmut Marko gave a strong hint that Raikkonen is not part of their 2014 plans anymore.
Sport Bild reported two days ago that Red Bull are ready to announce Daniel Ricciardo at the Belgian Grand Prix. The announcement would end months of rumors and speculations about Raikkonen joining the Milton-Keynes team.
The story is backed by Helmut Marko, who all but confirmed Ricciardo’s signing by giving a strong hint that Raikkonen is no longer on their agenda.
Asked by Bild yesterday evening if he was angered by reports about Raikkonen signing for Ferrari instead of Red Bull, he said: “I’m not nervous. You all forget we still have Vettel.”
