Daniel ricciardo, whose contract with Red Bull Racing expires at the end of 2018, said that he would like to compete in a team with three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton.
“I have long said that he would like to compare myself with drivers such as Alonso or Lewis – said Riccardo in comments to ESPN. But Alonso was already nearing the end of his career, so Lewis is a more attractive option for me. I’d like to fight him in equal machinery.
I had the opportunity to play in one team with Sebastian [Vettel]. Besides, now I’m fighting with max. But I wanted to compete with Lewis in his Prime”.
At the same time Christian Horner believes that Mercedes ricciardo will be the second number.
“We want to renew the contract with him. In our team, both pilots have equal chances to fight for the championship, – said Horner in comments to Sky Sports. But if he goes to Mercedes or Ferrari, then there will be the second number.
Daniel knows that we want to re-sign him. I hope we don’t need a lot of time to complete the transaction”.
