Aug.26 (GMM) Christian Horner and Daniel Ricciardo have denied Mark Webber's suggestion the decision about his 2014 successor is already made.
Obviously referring to his young compatriot Ricciardo, Le Mans-bound Webber said just before Sunday's Belgian grand prix that the news is "good for him and good for Australia".Red Bull team boss Horner, however, hit back: "I have never known a driver sign another driver."We have not yet made a decision," he insisted, according to Express newspaper.The British broadcaster Sky said at Spa-Francorchamps on Sunday, however, that Ricciardo has indeed been signed, with the news to be announced within days.Horner also denied that."We will take a couple of weeks to think things over," he insisted. "It's not a football transfer window, so no rush," he told the BBC.24-year-old Ricciardo also denied Webber's news."He really said that?" the Toro Rosso driver was quoted on Sunday by Russia's f1news.ru."We all know Mark -- he likes to make predictions, sometimes they are right, sometimes they're not."It's nice that he supports me, so I take his words as a compliment."But I'm sure if I had a contract, I would know about it. I don't think we're going to have to wait long for the team, but I still haven't heard anything," added Ricciardo.
