May 15 - Daniel Ricciardo insists he is still not in a hurry to sign a new contract for 2019.
But Red Bull wants an answer by the summer.
"The next contract I sign must be 'the contract'," Ricciardo told El Confidencial newspaper.
"I can't say what I'll be doing in five years, so that's why this next one has to be perfect for me."
But Ricciardo insists: "I'm not in a hurry. The team wants to have it done by the summer, but if the team tells me we can wait until October, then I can wait."
"For people who know this sport, they know it was not my fault," Ricciardo insisted.
