The Australian said Red Bull's Dr Helmut Marko has not set concrete targets, but he knows beating his HRT teammate Vitantonio Liuzzi is the obvious goal for the very near future.

"He doesn't say, 'by tomorrow you have to out qualify him or that is it'," Ricciardo said at the Hungaroring when asked about Marko's expectations.

The 22-year-old said both HRT and Toro Rosso are potential teams for his 2012 season.

"But I know what he (Marko) wants more or less and I know it is better to do these things sooner rather than later.

"He definitely expects me to be getting some results -- I think he wants to see me outqualifying and out-racing Tonio and mixing it with the Virgin guys," added Ricciardo.
