Unwanted Aussie F1 star Daniel Ricciardo could make a radical switch to NASCAR racing as he’s chased by top American team

Unwanted Aussie driver Daniel Ricciardo may sensationally defect to NASCAR racing if he fails to secure a seat on the F1 grid next year. Ricciardo, 33, is reportedly in the sights of ambitious Trackhouse Racing Project 91 boss Justin Marks to race NASCAR. Ricciardo – who has won eight races in his career – said last month he would be ‘at peace’ with sitting on the F1 sidelines as a reserve if the right career move does not eventuate. He would also be well aware of Ricciardo’s potential market value – and knows interest would be huge if he lured the West Australian to race in the US, according to the Herald Sun. In 225 race starts, the Australian driver has won eight races – most recently in Monza, Italy in 2021 –  and featured on the podium 32 times.
