Red Bull F1 Racing team looks set to retains Ricciardo and Kvyat for 2016


Red Bull Racing looks set to prepare for the F1 2016 season with an unchanged pair of drivers.

The former world championship-winning team’s current drivers are Daniel Ricciardo alongside young Russian Daniil Kvyat.

“I don’t see any reason for us to change,” boss Christian Horner said at Spa-Francorchamps.

“We are very pleased with our two drivers. On the other hand, we have no reason to rush anything, because both drivers have long-term agreements with Red Bull.”

Horner also revealed that Ricciardo and Kvyat will probably have to take grid demotions at Monza in two weeks, due to needing a new Renault power unit each.

“There are still a lot of races left, so penalties are inevitable,” said Horner.

“Strategically, Monza is the most likely venue for that, as Singapore will be our next best opportunity for a good result.” (GMM)
