Sergio Perez’s replacement has finally been identified by Red Bull.

Daniel Ricciardo expressed his joy at being associated with a potential return to Red Bull as a replacement for Sergio Perez. Despite Perez securing a seat at Red Bull for 2024, strong rumors about Ricciardo possibly taking over from the Mexican driver have circulated.

Perez’s struggles in the RB19, especially since taking over from Nyck de Vries at AlphaTauri midway through the season, have been closely scrutinized. Even with a confirmed spot next to Max Verstappen at Red Bull, the ongoing speculation surrounding Ricciardo’s potential move has intensified.

Acknowledging the competitive and unpredictable nature of the sport, Ricciardo admitted feeling relief and surprise at being linked with such a prestigious opportunity at the F1 constructors’ champions. When questioned about the rumors before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, he emphasized that the discussions did not add pressure but rather brought a smile to his face.


Reflecting on his journey in Formula 1 and the evolving narrative surrounding his career, Ricciardo found encouragement in the fact that even amidst uncertainties and fluctuations, unexpected possibilities could arise by staying focused and committed to the sport.
