Daniel Ricciardo has one year left on his contract with Red Bull but has admitted he has already given a thought to where he will be racing in the 2019 season.

He has partnered four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel and is currently in competition with Max Verstappen who many predict is a star of the future.

However, Ricciardo has admitted he would love to test himself alongside the three-time world champ Lewis Hamilton.

When asked if partnering Hamilton would be the ultimate test of his driving abilities, the Australian told ESPN: “Yes, absolutely.

“Forgetting the situation that he’s at Mercedes, taking teams out of it… just putting drivers, absolutely.

“I’ve said for a long time [Fernando] Alonso or Lewis would be the guys I’d love to see myself against.

“Alonso’s getting towards the tail of his career so Lewis at the moment is more desirable for me to go up against. So I would like that.

“Obviously I had the chance with Seb, I’ve had it with Max and I’m going to have it again with Max for at least one more year.

“But while Lewis is in his prime I would like to challenge and see.”

However, by the 2019 season Red Bull could have reestablished themselves as the dominant force in Formula One and Ricciardo admitted his full focus is on his current team.

“Everything is super positive at the moment but it’s been like this before, also last year and towards the end of most seasons,” he added.

“We’ve kind of gone up but then for whatever reason we’ve dropped a bit down for the start of the following season so I don’t want to come out all excited like, ‘We’re going to come out in Melbourne and win’.

“But this is what we can ask for for now and we’re doing it, so if we continue like that across the winter break then we’ll be looking really good.”
