Webber reveals Ricciardo is Red Bull successor
A mischievous Mark Webber on Sunday gave away the name of his successor at Red Bull.
While the frenzied 'silly season' rumour-mongers wonder if Kimi Raikkonen, Jenson Button or even Fernando Alonso might still be in the running, Australian Webber said it is his younger compatriot who has secured the plum 2014 seat.
Team boss Christian Horner has insisted all weekend that a decision has not been made, and that an announcement is not due at least until Monza in two weeks.
But the Le Mans-bound Webber said at Spa-Francorchamps: "The decision's made. We all know who it is. I'm happy with that decision.
"It's good for him and good for Australia," he told Channel 10.
