No problem with Alpine return for Ricciardo

Alpine boss Otmar Szafnauer says it would be “no problem at all” for Daniel Ricciardo to consider returning to the Renault-owned team. Fernando Alonso stunned both Alpine and Formula 1 by electing to leave the team at the end of 2022 – and Australian Piastri then multiplied the shock by rejecting Alpine’s announcement of his race seat for next year. Szafnauer does not rule out the Enstone team reuniting with Australian Ricciardo, 33, to get it done. On the face of it, Ricciardo has a firm McLaren contract for 2023 – but it is clear that team supremo Zak Brown has left the door open for a change.
