V8 Supercars teams chase Daniel Ricciardo for 2023 as Red Bull deal could open the door for Australian to make short-term return to his homeland

Daniel Ricciardo could be in line for a sensational short-term switch to V8 Supercars next season after Triple Eight Race Engineering and Garth Tander surprisingly parted ways on Friday. The eight-time Grand Prix winner signed a deal with Red Bull to be their reserve driver next year and has vowed to secure a seat for 2024. And his return to the Milton Keynes-based team could facilitate a switch to V8, as the energy drink giant’s motorsport arms includesĀ Triple Eight Race Engineering, which is branded asĀ Red Bull Ampol Racing Supercars. Fernando Alonso followed a similar path when he raced for McLaren in the Indianapolis 500 in 2017 and 2019, while under contract for the team’s Formula One team.
