RIC’s OVER Daniel Ricciardo AXED by McLaren and given £10m pay-off with Oscar Piastri lined up as replacement

DANIEL RICCIARDO has been given the boot by McLaren – paving the way for them to sign Oscar Piastri as Lando Norris’ teammate for next season. Ricciardo only joined the team in 2021 and is the only driver to win a race for the Woking team since 2013. Ricciardo’s early exit from his contract is believed to have cost McLaren around £10million. “I’ve enjoyed working with everyone at McLaren both trackside and back in Woking and will be giving my all on and off track as we enjoy the remainder of the season together. Zak Brown, the CEO of McLaren Racing, added: “Daniel has been a great addition to McLaren, and it’s been a pleasure working with him.
