Illustration for article titled Sebastian Vettels Next Teammate Will Be An Australian Lap Dog

According to Sport Bild, triple world champion Sebastian Vettel's next teammate at Red Bull F1 will be a faithful Australian lap dog named Daniel Ricciardo.

Daniel Ricciardo, who is actually a human being, is currently racing with some success at Red Bull's junior team Scuderia Torro Rosso. Expect him to garner a number of points finishes (and never an overall win) for Red Bull proper next year.


There were some other rumors that Michael Schumacher - er, excuse me, I mean Sebastian Vettel's teammate next year would be Kimi Raikkonen, but RB probably scrapped that plan when they saw the Finn outdrive the young German at the most recent Hungarian Grand Prix.

It is unclear if Daniel will change his name to 'Rubens' in honor of F1's most famous second-place teammate.
