Ricciardo to slim down for 2014 cockpit
Dr Helmut Marko has admitted Daniel Ricciardo will be a squeeze at the wheel of next year's Red Bull.
Designer Adrian Newey is known for his tight-fitting cockpits, and reports suggest that at a recent seat fitting, it emerged that team newcomer Ricciardo's hips are too wide for the RB10.
Red Bull's motor racing consultant Marko confirmed that the 24-year-old Australian will have to slim down.
"He doesn't really eat bacon anyway," the Austrian told Bild newspaper.
"But maybe he will have to do some special training to trim some muscle in certain places," added Marko.
