British champion Lewis Hamilton has backed AussieĀ Daniel Ricciardo to continue his career in F1Ā – just not atĀ Mercedes. That has led to speculation that Ricciardo could be set to join Mercedes as a reserve driver in 2023 before taking over from Hamilton in 2024. ‘I’m feeling fit, I love what I’m doing, and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon ā€” sorry, buddy!’. ‘The truth is I’m keeping every option open for not only next year but the future,’ he said. ‘It’s not just about what’s right for next year, it’s what’s right for my future; it goes beyond 2023. ‘Obviously [there are] many talks or thoughts about next year and beyond that, but as I said, I’m still not sure what that looks like.
