Too early for Hulkenberg, Ricciardo talks says Steiner

Daniel Ricciardo seems unlikely to return to the Formula 1 grid next year with Haas. Late last year, as Ricciardo lost his McLaren race seat for 2023, Haas boss Gunther Steiner had brief talks with the Australian. Steiner also said his personal relationship with Hulkenberg, 35, is “very easy”. “When I need him, he’s there for me – and when he needs me, I’m there for him,” he said. “It depends whether we are happy with him or not,” he said. “But we haven’t talked about drivers or extensions at the moment,” Steiner said. As for Ricciardo, apart from his high salary demands, the Australian has also said he doesn’t want to rebuild his race career from the ground up with anything other than a “top team”.
