Daniel Ricciardo breaks his silence to make it clear McLaren DID sack him – and insists he’s not finished in F1 despite getting offer to make big switch to American racing

Dumped Aussie F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo is adamant his days at the pinnacle of motor sport are not over as he made it clear McLaren made the decision to end his contract a year early. Taking to Instagram, Ricciardo confirmed the worst-kept secret in the sport – and made it abundantly clear it was ultimately the team’s decision, not his. ‘Bittersweet for sure but I think it’s best you hear it from me: 2022 will be my last year with McLaren. In an ironic twist, Aussie young gun Oscar Piastri, 21, may replace Ricciardo at McLaren next season. McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown said cutting ties with Ricciardo was a ‘sad day’.
