Daniel Ricciardo has warned Red Bull, and other teams, that he won’t settle when it comes to his contract negotiations.
The Aussie is out of contract with Red Bull at the end of 2018 and has been linked to a move to Ferrari or Mercedes.
Red Bull have made it clear that they want him to stay on and continue as Max Verstappen’s team-mate through to the end of 2020.
The team, though, may face some tough negotiations with the five-time grand prix winner.
“I’m 29 next year and the next deal will take me into my 30s, so it’s not like I’m the young unproven kid who’ll sign anything just to get on the grid, or at the other end of my career when I’m hanging on and doing things year by year – I don’t ever want to get to that stage, I can’t see myself being that guy,” he told the Red Bull website,
