Ferrari move is unlikely for F1 star Daniel Ricciardo

IT WOULD be a match made in Formula One heaven, but Aussie driver Daniel Ricciardo says he is unlikely to end up at Ferrari next season.

The 25-year-old is contracted to Red Bull until 2018, but speculation has suggested former champion Kimi Raikkonen was on the outer at Ferrari and Ricciardo was the main target.

"From my understanding it's not likely I can get out," he replied when asked ahead of this weekend's British Grand Prix whether he might switch camps.

"I would never rule anything out completely. I don't have experience with contracts. Things can change."

After finishing third in the championship in his debut season for Red Bull in 2014, Ricciardo (pictured) admitted he had been frustrated with his team's lack of competitiveness this season.

The West Australian is seventh on the standings after eight races, 133 points behind leader and defending champion Lewis Hamilton.
