A seat alongside three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton is vacant at Mercedes after Nico Rosberg's shock retirement following his F1 championship victory.

Ricciardo's name has been mentioned as a replacement among others, but the 27-year-old - who finished third in the drivers' standings in 2016 - has no plans to leave Red Bull.

"Honestly I have two more years at Red Bull," Ricciardo told reporters in Perth on Wednesday. "That's where I'm going to be.

"There's a lot of people who are tempted to jump into that seat and I don't blame them. But I just hope that whoever gets it, appreciates it.

"For me, you'll see me at Albert Park for Red Bull."
