F1 legend Jacques Villeneuve says Daniel Ricciardo is FINISHED at McLaren as he points to telling comments from team boss that mean Aussie will soon be ‘sitting on the couch at home’

Brown said before the weekend of racing that Norris already had ‘the edge’ over Ricciardo and the Aussie needed a big performance in Monaco to turn his year around. I need to – even if I don’t do the race – I need to drive a Supercar around Bathurst,’ he told GP Racing magazine at the time. ‘Whether it’s a private test, or the actual race, I do need to do it.
