Toto Wolff confirms Mercedes DID try to sign Daniel Ricciardo for 2023 as team boss concedes that the lure of ‘coming home’ to Red Bull saw him miss out on capturing the Australian

Toto Wolff has revealed that Mercedes were in the race to sign Daniel Ricciardo for 2023, but the lure of ‘coming home’ to Red Bull saw the Silver Arrows miss out on the Australian. However, Red Bull won the race to sign the 33-year-old and announced him as their ‘third driver’ for the 2023 season late last month. Ricciardo stamped himself as a star in the making during his time in the junior ranks with Red Bull, and Wolff has conceded that the Australian’s fond memories at Red Bull played against them. ‘Basically, we just needed time to figure out what we wanted to do and Red Bull was his home for a long time,’ added Wolff.
