Mark Webber ‘is trying to get McLaren to replace Daniel Ricciardo with Aussie young gun Oscar Piastri’ – as 33-year-old can only manage ninth at Austrian Grand Prix

F1 legend Mark Webber could act as the executioner on Daniel Ricciardo’s career with the driver-turned-agent reportedly plotting to have rising star Oscar Piastri replace the Aussie at McLaren. While he has been heavily linked to Williams for 2023, leading F1 reporter Ted Kravitz has suggested that Webber could be working to have Piastri replace Ricciardo at McLaren instead. ‘Could the delay be that he and his manager Mark Webber are looking at potentially replacing Daniel Ricciardo at McLaren?. ‘It was just an honest answer, it wasn’t meant to be critical,’ he said. ‘It doesn’t mean we don’t think he can win us more races, it doesn’t mean we’re not trying unbelievably hard — quite the opposite; I know he can win us more races, we’re trying unbelievably hard.
