Daniel Ricciardo has revealed he still does not know what he will be doing in 2011.

The Australian, who was Red Bull's reserve driver in 2010, this week stunned the F1 world with record-setting pace in the Abu Dhabi young driver test at the wheel of the championship winning RB6.

The energy drink company's four F1 race seats are already occupied for 2011, but it has been rumoured a drive at Lotus - to use Red Bull gearboxes next year - is a possibility.

"I called Dr (Helmut) Marko to keep him informed of the developments in testing.

"I asked him if he had any news for next season, but he said nothing has been decided yet," 21-year-old Ricciardo told Auto Hebdo.

"I am a member of the Red Bull junior team so my future is in their hands. I have every confidence in them and I know they will decide what is best for me."
