Red Bull confirm Ricciardo move
Red Bull have confirmed Daniel Ricciardo will drive for the team from the start of next season, replacing his fellow Australian Mark Webber.
Ricciardo, who currently drives for Red Bull's junior team Toro Rosso, will link up with triple world champion Sebastian Vettel in the senior team in 2014.
"I feel very, very good at the moment and obviously there's a lot of excitement running through me," said Ricciardo.
"Since joining F1 in 2011 I hoped this would happen and, over time, the belief in me has grown. I had some good results and Red Bull has decided that this is it, so it's a good time.
"Next year I'll be with a Championship-winning team, arguably the best team, and will be expected to deliver. I'm ready for that.
"I'm not here to run around in tenth place, I want to get the best results for myself and the team. I would like to thank the team for giving me the opportunity to show what I can do.
"I know the team quite well already since being its reserve driver in 2010, which should make the transition easier. It will be a great challenge to be up against Sebastian Vettel, I'm looking forward to that."
