“Daniel has an opportunity between now and the end of the year to demonstrate he hasn’t lost any of his form, and then a decision will be made as to whether he remains in that seat for a further 12 months.”
Red Bull have made it clear that 33-year-old Sergio Perez will not lose his seat and be able see out the remainder of his contract that is due to finish in 2024.
Seven out of eight of Riccardo’s Formula 1 race wins have come with Red Bull Racing and the AlphaTauri driver will be looking to reignite the success he experienced with the team over a 5-year period with Red Bull.
“Obviously, the reason Daniel was brought back into the seat is not because he has long-term aspirations to be an AlphaTauri driver for the next five years,” said Horner.
“He sees it as the quickest route to getting back into a competitive seat."
