Daniel Ricciardo is about to make his F1 debut at the British GP next weekend. Ricciardo is the test driver for ToroRosso and the team was about to promote him to a race seat this year. This young and talented Australian should have replaced either Jaime Alguersuari or Sebastien Buemi. Buemi has been beating his team-mate at the Qualifications this season. However, Jaime secured his place in the team with capturing the 8th place at the European GP.
Daniel has got an offer to race this season at the HRT. He replaces Narain Karthikeyan for the rest of the season, except the Indian GP where Narain will return to the cockpit. Daniel’s deal with HRT is only till the end of this season. He should gain some racing experiences at the F1 series throughout the season and from the next year he should be racing either for Toro Rosso or even for Red Bull Racing if he impresses greatly.
