Daniel Ricciardo is ‘offered a lifeline by F1 cult hero’ as the $300million problem that’s holding the struggling Aussie back at McLaren is revealed

Aussie F1 superstar Daniel Ricciardo has had a disappointing season on the track, but there appears to be an unlikely light at the end of the tunnel: a career lifeline from cult Haas boss Guenther Steiner. Ricciardo has only managed to finish in the top 10 on four occasions this year, despite the season being 13 races old. So then the high and the reward is pretty amazing and pretty spectacular,’ said Ricciardo of why he could keep going despite not having the results he had hoped for this season. The $300million upgrade for a new wind tunnel and simulator is on the horizon – but the team won’t even see the benefits until the 2024 season. Ricciardo will likely not ever see the benefits of the upgrades, but Key’s admissions give valuable context as to why he and the team have been so disappointing this season.
