Red Bull Looks To Toro Rosso For Vettel's Number Two

Helmut Marko, Red Bull's controversial consultant has admitted the team would most likely promote a Toro Roso driver if Mark Webber does not stay beyond 2011. While most key players including teammate Sebastian Vettel, Christian Horner and Adrian Newey recently had their contracts extended, Red Bull Racing is holding off re-signing Webber until his ongoing performance and motivation is gauged.

Speaking to Italian magazine Autosprint Marko states "We will try to do what we did three years ago with Sebastian Vettel, when David Coulthard retired, Of course, this will not be automatic, If a driver does not meet all of the professional requirements, we will not offer him the opportunity to drive at Red Bull."

With a Red Bull Racing seat the most coveted in Formula One and neither Toro Roso driver looking anything special it seems like Red Bull want to go the Ferrari route of a number one and number two driver.
