boss casts doubt on Daniel Ricciardo’s future as he claims sport does not need new teams despite lack of seats

DANIEL Ricciardo may miss out on his 11th season in Formula 1 after being dropped by McLaren for fellow Aussie Oscar Piastri. The 33 year-old, who was contracted to the team for the 2023 season, has now been left in the dark about his future. Ricciardo, who has eight career race wins, stands 14th with 19 points on the current leaderboard, compared to teammate Lando Norris in 7th with 88 points. As seats become more and more valuable towards the end of the season, teams seem to favour younger, upcoming drivers. And in more bad news for Ricciardo, F1 boss Stefan Domenicali is standing strongly by his decision not to add any more teams to the sport. He admitted that adding new teams to Formula 1 is “not a priority”. Domenicali went on to say it would be “too crowded”, with F1 already having ten teams and 20 drivers. Domenicali said: “Adding one or two [teams], you may open up some driving seats.
