Webber Announces Red Bull Replacement

Mark Webber this morning seemed to reveal that Daniel Ricciardo will replace him at Red Bull in 2014. 

The Australian was speaking to Australia’s Channel 10 on the grid ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix when asked about the open seat at the team which has been the cause for much speculation since Webber announced his retirement last month. 

Following Kimi Raikkonen’s manager confirming that discussions with the World Champions had broken down, Ricciardo, a member of the Red Bull Young Driver’s Programme, was hotly tipped to replace his county-man. Mark has all but personally named Ricciardo, telling Channel 10, “The decision’s made. We all know who it is. I’m happy with that decision. It’s good for him and good for Australia.”

Webber will be racing in the World Endurance Championships with Porsche next year.
