Germany's [Images] Sebastian Vettel will replace retiring David Coulthard at Red Bull next year, the Formula One team said on Thursday.
The 21-year-old, who will partner Australian Mark Webber [Images], is currently racing for Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso.
"As he was already part of the Red Bull family, choosing Sebastian as Mark Webber's team-mate was not a difficult decision," team boss Christian Horner said in a statement at the German Grand Prix.
"However, we have always stated that our aim is to have the strongest available driver line-up and Vettel's selection also matches these criteria."
