Red Bull is keen to retain one of the finest over taker in F1, Daniel Ricciardo but the team will not wait for the Australian forever, said Red Bull principal Christian Horner.

Next year will be the fifth year for Ricciardo with the team since stepping up from Toro Rosso. He will become out of contract next season.

In his first season at Red Bull, he got the better of Sebastian Vettel  Ricciardo, winning five races for the team, he only failed to finish ahead of his teammate when Daniil Kvyat beat him by three points during a disappointing 2015 season that saw the pair finish seventh and eighth respectively.

With Ricciardo is analysing his every potential chance for next year, Horner told RACER that the team can take the decision out of his hands if he took alot time to think.

“I think Daniel knows what our strengths are and hopefully we’ll be in a reasonable position,” Horner said of keeping hold of Ricciardo.

“I think he’s at a stage in his career where he’s wanting to evaluate all of his options, which you can understand. The problem is we won’t wait around forever and we’ve got some very good options available to us, but our priority is to try and ensure we find a solution with Daniel.”

Asked if contract negotiations will be a first choice for the team, Red Bull’s Christian Horner replied: “I get the impression he’ll want to see relative engine performances next year. He’s had four years of frustration on that side of things, so I can understand him wanting to see how things are panning out.”

Max Verstappen will be with the Red Bull till the end of the 2020 season, while Carlos Sainz has been loaned to Renault for next year but remains part of the Red Bull driver program, with the Spaniard most likely to replace Daniel Ricciardo, if provided he opts out of the team.
