Daniel Ricciardo’s manager SLAMS critics who say the Aussie’s ego is to blame for lack of F1 opportunities and declares he will be back: ‘His maturity and experience is a matched by few on the grid…he’s not done’

Redundant F1 star Daniel Ricciardo may be trackside next year – but his manager Nick Thimm says he is ‘not done yet’, slamming the critics who have blamed the Aussie’s ego for his up-in-the-air future. Using an F1 points system, Ricciardo has been firmed the long-margin winner of the 2022 drivers engagement championship – which ranks engagements with the fans per race. While the reality is Ricciardo will sit out 2023, hopes are that the Aussie Grand Prix trailblazer will re-spark his career in 2024. ‘I think that there could be some better opportunities then, so that‘s really what all this confirms and now where the sights are set,’ Ricciardo told reporters post Japanese qualifying. Ricciardo says he is merely putting his career on ‘pause’ for a period after 227 career starts – the most out of any Australian driver in history.
