McLaren to consider Ricciardo future soon

Daniel Ricciardo looks likely to lose his McLaren seat at the end of 2022. It followed McLaren supremo Zak Brown this week admitting that Ricciardo has not met the team’s “expectations” since joining the Woking based team last year. But when a journalist in Monaco queried Ricciardo as to why he would hold “negotiations” with McLaren when he still has a contract for 2023, he admitted his current deal is actually only for two years. If Ricciardo’s contract is ending, the names of two potential replacements are already circulating, including McLaren’s 23-year-old Indycar driver Pato O’Ward. McLaren CEO Brown, meanwhile, said McLaren is still trying to bring Ricciardo up to full speed. “Frankly, the option of extending with Ricciardo looks unlikely.”.
