Late last month Mark Webber announced his intention to retire from Formula One at the end of the current season and enter the 2014 World Endurance Championship together with Porsche. This came as no major surprise given Webber’s relationship of late with his current employer Red Bull Racing, but the question on everybody’s lips is who will replace him.

Red Bull Racing has now given the biggest indication yet as to who may end up being Sebastian Vettel’s team-mate next season. Vettel has already signed a contract for two more years with the Milton Keynes-based squad.   

The team has posted a poll on its Facebook page listing three potential drivers: Jean-Eric Vergne and Daniel Ricciardo from Red Bull’s feeder team Scuderia Torro Rosso, as well as Kimi Räikkönen of Lotus.

While Räikkönen is by far the favorite judging by the poll’s results, the final decision will likely come down to who most strategically fits with the team. As World Car Fans points out, Vettel has revealed to media that he will also have a say on who is ultimately picked.

Stay tuned for an update.
