Ricciardo not at level of Verstappen and Perez says Marko

Dr Helmut Marko has dealt a major blow to Daniel Ricciardo’s hopes of a return to the very top in Formula 1. Although Australian Ricciardo, 33, will do some testing in Red Bull’s 2023 car this year, Marko says he is not a candidate to actually race. “Where is Ricciardo compared to (Max) Verstappen and (Sergio) Perez in the simulator? “Alpha Tauri is Alpha Tauri and Red Bull Racing is Red Bull Racing,” Marko insisted. Marko acknowledged that Ricciardo has said he is interested in returning next year with a top team. However, Marko does seem happy with Ricciardo in his current reserve driver role.
