Daniel Ricciardo’s Silverstone Test Fuels Speculation for F1 2023 Seat
Helmut Marko remains tight-lipped about potential driver changes at Red Bull Racing
Mystery surrounds Daniel Ricciardo’s upcoming tyre test at Silverstone, with speculation growing about its potential impact on the Red Bull Racing driver lineup for the 2023 Formula 1 season. As Ricciardo prepares to get behind the wheel of the RB19 following the British Grand Prix, Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko was evasive when asked if the test could determine the future of Nyck de Vries.
De Vries, signed to AlphaTauri after an impressive debut at the 2022 Italian Grand Prix, has faced challenges adapting to Formula 1. Despite his success in Formula E, the 28-year-old Dutch driver has yet to score a point in F1, with his best result being a 12th-place finish at the Monaco Grand Prix. He has been outperformed by his Japanese teammate in qualifying sessions and races.
