Daniel Ricciardo insisted Thursday that he has not been told that he has Mark Webber’s Red Bull drive for next season – despite the consensus in the paddock being that the young Australian has gotten the nod.
However, the Toro Rosso driver’s body language definitely suggested that he’s expecting some good news, and even by his usual standards, he had a big smile on his face at Spa-Francorchamps.
“I don’t, honestly, follow too much of the media hype – sorry guys,” he said. “I’m on Twitter, so you see a few comments on Twitter. People write to me asking things, so then I become aware of maybe a few things that are going on. As far as I know, they could have happened, they could have not; it could just be one person starting a story.
