But the affable Australian Ricciardo expressed some frustration that Red Bull is not in a title-challenging position so far this year.
"Obviously now it gets to that point where we really - and I - want to be fighting for a championship," he told Fairfax Media in Monaco grand prix.
"It can't kind of be a long-term plan anymore to me.
"Obviously I thought this year would be a chance and that seems to be slipping away," said the 27-year-old. "So we have got to see some real progress over the year and a sign that next year it can be delivered, because it is just, obviously, personal goals."
Asked directly about the prospect of leaving Red Bull, however, Ricciardo said: "At the moment, no.
"I don't really know what they are going to do, to be honest. It is all pretty much a closed book I guess at this stage. So yeah, I would say it is still an unlikely for next year."
