Ricciardo signs with ISR – Red Bull continues to shun GP2

With the announcement today by Igor Salaquarda’s ISR team in FR 3.5 regarding the signing of Daniel Ricciardo, all hopes of seeing Red Bull back in GP2 are now gone.   After Jean Eric Vergne announced he was joining Carlin for this same series, a glimmer of hope still existed but now no Red Bull junior driver is in the position to make the step up to GP2.

Bad news?  Well, not necessarily, but I am just continuously baffled by how Red Bull has turned its back to this category.    Is it a statement about its excessive cost?  Is it trying to not mix-up F1 with Horner’s GP2/GP3 business?   Not sure, but Dr. Marko must have a clear and very convincing reason.
