Ricciardo would relish being Lewis Hamilton's teammate

BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) Daniel Ricciardo would relish the challenge of having Lewis Hamilton as his teammate if he joins Mercedes next year.

Ricciardo is out of contract at Red Bull at the end of the season and has expressed an interest in changing teams so he can challenge for the Formula One championship. That would likely mean a switch to either Mercedes or Ferrari.

"I'd love to obviously be challenged against the best and Lewis is obviously up there," the Australian said Thursday. "I don't want to say it's just Lewis I'm looking for but that would be a good challenge."
