How Daniel Ricciardo plans to return from broken hand in timeframe ‘any normal human being’ couldn’t manage after crash with fellow Aussie Oscar Piastri

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has backed Daniel Ricciardo to be back on the grid in less than a month after being ruled out of the Dutch Grand Prix with a broken wrist. The Australian pranged his AlphaTauri at the steeply banked Turn Three in practice at Zandvoort on Friday and would have been fine other than for not releasing his grip from the steering wheel on impact with the wall. The former Red Bull star finished 13th on his return at the Hungarian Grand Prix and then 16th the following race in Belgium. But Horner suggested the eight-time Grand Prix winner could be back in the cockpit in time for the Singapore Grand Prix on September 17. The Australian vowed to be back on the grid as quickly as possible, but conceded he would only do so if fully recovered from the injury.
