Daniel Ricciardo looks set to team up with Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull Racing next year

The identity of Sebastian Vettel’s 2014 teammate could be revealed as soon as this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix, according the insiders in the German press, and all indicators suggest that it will be Daniel Ricciardo.

Sport Bild’s claims that the confirmation of the 23-year-old’s promotion from Scuderia Toro Rosso will be made ahead of this weekend’s Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps.

“Unfortunately, I cannot say any more than that we will make an announcement at Spa,” Red Bull Racing advisor Dr Helmut Marko told the newspaper.
