Ricky and Vern are the obvious choices as they would have no problem playing second fiddle to Seb.

I think Kimi would be the best for the team but the politics would be just gross.

Raikkonen would be the better choice. Sure he doesnt need the money but he strikes me as being the only one of the 3 who could handle both Horner himself and Vettel. He would then be in a position to win races and the F1WC

Like to see Ricciardo have a shot but will wait until D.M. has his say.

He appears to be the only one with a clear version of whats happening with Infinity RBR.

Vettel and Raikkonen together would be beyond the present teams management on many platforms particularly Marko's..

Horner is shaping up as the next Frank Willaims - another team manager without the slightest ability to identify driver talent - mind blowing that he would say Di Resta is not on the shortlist when this is a guy who beat Vettel in the same car pre F1 - and been impressive at times in F1 - unlike Riccardo and Vergne who have failed to impress for quite some time now - its almost as if he WANTS a number 2 driver alongside Vettel - oh wait...!

DiResta doesn't even deserve a Force India seat. He's been walloped by most of his teammates & is far to sulky for an energy brand.
"Red Bull gives you sulks" doesn't quite work for the marketing dept.

The Torro Rosso duo are certainly not top F1 drivers either, not even top of the 'up-and-coming' brigade. Bottas & Bianchi are both better.

Final consideration is that Dietrich has openly confessed to being a fan of Kimi's.

There is only 1 driver in consideration.
