Formula 1 legend retraces Daniel Ricciardo’s McLaren demise to his decision to leave Red Bull four years ago and claims Australian ‘has lost his mojo’

Formula 1 pundit Martin Brundle believes Daniel Ricciardo’s career never recovered from his ill-fated decision to leave Red Bull in 2018. ‘He shouldn’t have left Red Bull, that’s how it looks to me. After a largely unsuccessful two-season spell with the French team, Ricciardo joined McLaren at the beginning of 2021 on a three-year deal. On Wednesday, McLaren announced it had reached an agreement to move on from Ricciardo at the end of the year, ending months of speculations over his future. Brundle suggested Ricciardo’s travails over the last four years must have been painful to endure for the 32-year-old. Brundle, however, admitted McLaren had made the right call by deciding to replace Ricciardo a year earlier than planned.
