Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen discuss who is the No1 driver at Red Bull

Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen discuss who is the No1 driver at Red Bull

The duo have been battling it out this season as they look to finish as high as possible in the Formula One drivers’ standings.

And team principal Christian Horner recently talked up both drivers as potential world champions in the years to come.

Verstappen has committed his long-term future to Red Bull by putting pen to paper on a contract that ties him down until 2020.

Ricciardo on the other hand is yet to sign a new deal and there have been suggestions the team is being build round his team-mate.

Ricciardo says he’s not concerned about the way things are going at Red Bull though.

“For me, Max’s new contract doesn’t change anything,” the Australian racer said.

”And as long as I don’t feel disadvantaged, everything is fine for me.

“I don’t want to put any suspicions in my head when it’s not necessary.

“I can understand the marketing value of Red Bull making Verstappen the youngest champion, but I don’t see that as an obstacle for me.”

Verstappen echoed Ricciardo’s comments.

“I can see that we receive equal equipment and both sides of the garage work equally hard,” the Dutchman said.

“I don’t want to be No1 because I have to be able to beat my teammate with the same car. And the bottom line is that it is more satisfying anyway.”
