Autosport podcast: Daniel Ricciardo and the 2019 F1 driver market

The latest edition of The Autosport Podcast looks into Ricciardo's situation, and how it is connected to the possibility Red Bull could switch to Honda engines next year.

Glenn Freeman and Ben Anderson join host Edd Straw to explain what has been going on behind the scenes of Ricciardo and Red Bull's discussions, and what it will take for Red Bull to gamble on Honda.

The rest of the driver market is also examined, with four of the men in the top six F1 seats still not tied down for 2019.

The possibilities in the midfield are then discussed, with a look at some of the drivers who might be knocking on the door to move into F1 next season.
