Daniel Ricciardo has responded to speculation regarding his future amid uncertainty over his spot on the grid going forward.

Ricciardo has endured a largely difficult campaign at RB, but has scored two point-scoring results at the last three grands prix.

Team-mate Yuki Tsunoda has already been confirmed at RB for next year's campaign while the identity of his team-mate is yet to be confirmed.

Liam Lawson, who substituted for Ricciardo at a handful of races last year while the Australian was injured, is a contender for the drive.

Ricciardo, in turn, has been linked with a return to Red Bull to replace a struggling Sergio Perez.

When asked by media including RacingNews365 if he will still be in the RB in the coming months, Ricciardo said: "I would never make any predictions in this sport.

“I feel like every year that this sport goes on, I know it goes in the trend of the sport is getting bigger. It's becoming more Hollywood, so to speak, in terms of the profile the sport has.

“Also the narrative that runs with the sport now, is certainly more Hollywood in terms of it's so unpredictable.”

Ricciardo knows 'crazy things happen'

Ricciardo's return to the grid last year came with the hope of an eventual return to the front-running Red Bull squad.

While the 35-year-old is still in the dark over his future, he did not rule out the possibility of a move going forward.

"Do I have any proof that I'll be anywhere else? I do not,” Ricciardo conceded.

“Crazy things happen but I am certainly not in a place to say that or think that or predict that.

“So [I will] try and keep doing my thing. Obviously, [qualifying at Silverstone] wasn't the case.

“But again, I know, not to completely just point the finger, but I felt like there wasn't much more I could do with the situation we put ourselves in.”
