Daniel Ricciardo set for a role as Red Bull third driver next season

Daniel Ricciardo is set for a role as Red Bull third driver next season. The Australian, who is being released from his contract by McLaren at the end of this season after a disappointing year, is close to a deal to return to his former team. Red Bull motorsport adviser Helmut Marko told BBC Sport he was “talking” to Ricciardo about the position. But sources say that a deal between the two parties will be sealed in the coming days, and that Ricciardo will rejoin the team with whom he took seven of his eight grand prix victories. On Thursday, Ricciardo had hinted that a deal was close for him to stay in F1 despite the loss of his McLaren seat.
