Amid the speculation that Daniel Ricciardo will be driving a widebody RB10 for Red Bull Racing next year comes this obscure tweet from Fernando Alonso:
I have important news coming these days … Stay tuned here on Twitter and on the Web.. !!!

We wonder, is he trolling? His Ferrari contract ties him to Maranello until the end of the 2016 season, although we note contracts can be broken if both parties agree.
So, could Fernando really be heading to Red Bull or is he just announcing he’s got a new shampoo sponsor, or something?
UPDATE: Turns out Alonso has bought the licence of the failed pro cycling team Euskaltel. [Source | Thanks to Ryan for the tip]
