star Daniel Ricciardo ‘wants a whopping £12.1m pay-out’ for McLaren contract termination amid Oscar Piastri rumours

DANIEL RICCIARDO is reportedly holding out for a £17.3million to terminate his McLaren contract. Ricciardo, believed to have a deal with the team for next season, is understood to be in discussions about taking an early-exit settlement. And according to Speedcafe in Australia, Ricciardo wants $21m (£17.3m) from McLaren in order to walk away. Ricciardo, who remains the team’s only race-winner over the past 10 years, has otherwise had an underwhelming time since joining from Renault in 2021. The highly-rated 21-year-old won the Formula 3 and Formula 2 titles in back to back seasons. Last month, Ricciardo quashed rumours he was planning to retire from the sport by insisting he has a contract with McLaren until the end of the 2023 season. I was like no, it’s time, time to let everyone know from the horse’s mouth.
