Vettel: Kimi will not join Red Bull next year

During Thursday’s press conference, Sebastian Vettel revealed that negotiations with Raikkonen have indeed broken down. 

FORMULA 1 - Malaysian GPSteve Robertson’s admission that negotiations stopped was believed to be a ploy to bring Red Bull back to the table. The two parties were supposed to meet this weekend to make a final try.

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.
