Marko backing Ricciardo for Red Bull

Helmut Marko believes that Daniel Ricciardo has what it takes to partner Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull.

As has been the case every season, Mark Webber has to renegotiated his one-year deal with the team but now more so than ever the Australian's future at the team appears in jeopardy.

It comes as no surprise that Vettel's decision to disobey instructions from team principal Christian Horner and pass Webber to take victory in Sepang did not go down well with Webber, with the team's failure to publically discipline Vettel sure to have added to tensions. As a result the rumour mill has gone into overdrive regarding whether the German will have new team-mate next season.

Red Bull have said they are in no rush to make any decisions regarding their line-up, but team advisor Marko has weighed in with his opinion, asserting that either one of the Toro Rosso drivers could make the step up, but with Ricciardo the better option than Jean-Eric Vergne

"Many drivers want to drive for Red Bull, and we have two very good juniors," Marko told APA.

"I'm not worried that we will have something other than two top drivers in the end.

"In general we are happy with both drivers," Marko added of the Toro Rosso duo.

"Ricciardo is currently the better one. Vergne is too impetuous, asking too much of these sensitive tyres in qualifying."
