During Thursday’s press conference, Sebastian Vettel revealed that negotiations with Raikkonen have indeed broken down.
Sebastian Vettel, however, clearly stated that Raikkonen will not drive for Red Bull next year.
“First of all, I don’t know how realistic the chances were of him driving here, but we’ve all been informed that it’s not going to happen anymore. Kimi would have been nice in many ways. Now it’s not happening so it doesn’t make sense to talk about it.”, Vettel stated.
Ricciardo is set to be confirmed at Red Bull now that Raikkonen is indeed out of the picture.
