He fits the age gap for Red Bull
After the brutally emphatic ousting of Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari at the end of 2011, can Red Bull afford the bad publicity of another failed class? The next crop of rising talent may be minded to take their fledgling talents elsewhere if they are not convinced that the Red Bull/Toro Rosso driver programme isn't a dead end street.
to the public than Vettel's court jester act or Webber's grittiness has proved to be. The wonderfully personable Ricciardo is impossible not to like. Best of all, he would be considered synonymous with Red Bull's image whereas a central tenant of Raikkonen's popularity is that he is seen as a lone wolf.
This under mentioned aspect of Ricciardo's candidature is arguably his strongest. Red Bull must be mindful that, with Vettel only extending his contract until the end of 2015 and the 33 year old Raikkonen approaching the final years of his F1 career, there will be ongoing uncertainty about their long term driver line up if they don't put a Puma Creepers White And Black member of the next generation under lock and key now.
The ongoing success of their famous graduate, a chap by the name of Vettel, provides some leeway, but questions will have to be asked about the point of Red Bull's tie up with Toro Rosso, and their young driver programme as a whole, if Ricciardo is denied promotion by the oldest man on the 2014 grid.
He'll do wonders for Red Bull's image
Red Bull need their driver programme to work
or at least far, far closer than Raikkonen.
While Kimi Raikkonen remains the odds on favourite to replace Mark Webber at Red Bull in 2014, the case for Daniel Ricciardo to partner Sebastian Vettel has considerable merit.
The bottom line is that there's only way to find out for certain.
The flaw in the argument remains the paucity of his points scoring: a total of 21 over one and almost half a season. But that shortage is a measure of his car's shortcomings rather than an indication of a dearth of talent, and there's just enough evidence in those outstanding qualifying results to support a hunch that Ricciardo has the sought after x factor.

Making the case for Daniel Ricciardo to replace Mark Webber at Red Bull in 2014
Despite or, more likely, because of their success, Red Bull are a strangely unpopular team; any brave fan at a grand prix bedecked in Red Bull colours would be a study in solitude. Hiring Ricciardo wouldn't transform attitudes overnight, but his personable, engaging manner would be far more appealing Puma Fenty Shoes
Appointing Ricciardo would keep Red Bull's winning formula in place
Yet while it's fair to say that neither Ricciardo or Jean Eric Vergne made a vivid impression during their debut seasons, there's been a noticeable upturn in the Australian's form since news of Webber's imminent departure broke. Whereas Vergne could only qualify 12th and 16th at Silverstone and the Nurburgring respectively, Ricciardo put his Toro Rosso fifth and sixth on the grid. Those results suggest three things: first, the Aussie, unlike his team mate, has that rare capability of transcending his machinery; two, he has genuine pace, a prerequisite for partnering Vettel; and three, he thrives rather than shrinks when under pressure to impress, another prerequisite alongside Vettel in a Red Bull.
Ricciardo will be far cheaper than Raikkonen

While Vettel and Raikkonen are friends off the track, just how would Red Bull's internal dynamic which has produced three successive Constructor titles react to ambiguity around the identity of the team's de facto leader? From Red Bull's perspective, the consequential aggravation of appointing a second world class driver is a hassle they don't need; they have, after all, won the last three championships and are well on the way to a fourth despite or perhaps because of Webber only offering a muted challenge to Vettel in the Drivers' Championship.
About cheaper at our first guesstimate.
At 24, Ricciardo would fit the bill. The only route around would be a one year deal for Raikkonen followed by a 2015 season in which Ricciardo can bed in before Vettel decides on his next move. But would Raikkonen accept a single year deal? And what would Ricciardo gain from another year idling at Toro Rosso? No, it's surely now or never for Ricciardo and Red Bull.
The boy has talent
Although Raikkonen's laidback personality ought not to ruffle many feathers within the Red Bull camp, there's an intriguing argument that his promotion would suit Vettel far more than it would suit Red Bull. For while Vettel still has it all to prove in direct team mate combat against an elite driver, the appointment of a second number one driver would be a clear divergence from Red Bull's established and proven winning formula.
The least convincing feature of Ricciardo's claim for a promotion. Put bluntly: Ricciardo's results in F1 have been far from outstanding.
