Ricciardo’s hips too wide for 2014 Red Bull
The Australian has been at Milton-Keynes
Even before his 2014 seat has been announced, Daniel Ricciardo’s Red Bull career has hit a snag.
The German-language Speed Week, and Italy’s authoritative Autosprint, report that the Australian has been at Milton-Keynes for a seat-fitting in the 2014-spec RB10.
Designer Adrian Newey is known for his tight-fitting cockpits, and the packaging is reportedly even more problematic for 2014 given the new turbo V6 and ’ERS’ regulations.
And while Ricciardo is slightly shorter than his Australian compatriot Mark Webber, the European media reports reveal that his hips are slightly wider than Webber and world champion Sebastian Vettel’s.
