Daniel Ricciardo willing to take a break from F1 if ‘stars don’t align’ on new deal

Back on duty for his British team before the Belgian Grand Prix on Thursday less than 24 hours since they announced their split at the end of this season, Ricciardo made his revelation about taking a possible sabbatical. Ricciardo, who is ending his contract with McLaren at the end of the season a year early after a series of disappointing results, reiterated that he had been “proud” of his efforts over two seasons at McLaren.

But Ricciardo’s current teammate Lando Norris said he had no sympathy for his outgoing colleague, who is now in the strange position of having to race nine more grand prix for the team before leaving.
