Red Bull to evaluate Ricciardo with F1 test

Daniel Ricciardo’s hopes of returning to Formula 1 have been given a major boost by Dr Helmut Marko. Marko signed up the axed McLaren driver, and former teammate to Max Verstappen at Red Bull Racing, to be Red Bull’s reserve, test and ambassadorial driver this year. “One thing I want to get out of this year is I want to know what I want, but I also want to know what I don’t want. I don’t want to just be on the grid to be on the grid and struggle in 18th place. For Ricciardo, the fact that Verstappen’s current teammate Sergio Perez has entered a performance slump is perfect timing. “His (Perez’s) initial goal was two, three years (with Red Bull),” Marko insisted.
