Red Bull to give Daniel Ricciardo tyre test to ‘evaluate his pace’ and ‘keep options open’
Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko has confirmed that Daniel Ricciardo will have the opportunity to drive the RB19 after the British Grand Prix, as the team aims to assess his pace and performance.
Ricciardo, who returned to Red Bull as the third driver for the 2023 season after his contract with McLaren ended prematurely last year, has been patiently waiting for his chance to showcase his abilities. He has been actively involved as a reserve driver, attending several races and spending time in Red Bull’s simulator as part of his duties.
Marko revealed that Ricciardo will have a three-day test with the RB19 after the Silverstone race, allowing the team to gain a comprehensive understanding of his performance.
