Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz says that Mark Webber would be considered for 2014 if he wants to stay on, and also he added that Kimi Raikkonen is a “candidate” for a drive.

After the Red Bull team orders controversy at Malaysia widespread future about Webber’s, last Grand Prix at Malaysia Webber’s tea,-mate Sebastian Vettel ignored team orders to claim top podium from the Australian.

But, Mateschitz, who has been a long-term supporter of Mark Webber, has state if the F1 veteran wishes to continue, and team will be considered for 2014.

“Mark is definitely a candidate for 2014,” Mateschitz told Speedweek.

“Whether he retires he must decide, but with us he is always welcome. Just as a quick junior such as [Jean-Eric] Vergne or [Daniel] Ricciardo from Toro Rosso would be. Sorry, that is a diplomatic answer which leaves everything open, but that’s how it is. Everything else is pure speculation.”

Asked whether Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen would be considered for a future role, Mateschitz added: “Kimi is cool and fast and always a candidate.”
