Daniel Ricciardo concedes that questions about whether he may be off to Ferrari in 2019 are coming from “fans and the media”, not necessarily from Ferrari.
With Ferrari’s recent announcement that Kimi Raikkonen will stay on next season having signed a new one-year deal, already questions are being asked about 2019.
One driver linked to the Finn’s race-seat is Sebastian Vettel’s former team-mate Ricciardo.
However, the Aussie isn’t so sure that it is Ferrari who are asking.
“When I do get asked the Ferrari questions, I feel it’s more coming from fans and the media but not necessarily from Ferrari,” he said.
“I think maybe some people want to see it, but the people that matter I’m not sure if they do.
“If I’m really honest, knowing that nothing will probably happen anyway until 2019, it feels too far away to start thinking. We will see.”
