Daniel Ricciardo’s Remarkable F1 Journey: From Uncertainty to a Red Bull Return
At the close of the 2022 Formula 1 season, it appeared that Daniel Ricciardo’s F1 career might be over. McLaren had opted not to retain him for the final year of his contract, leading to his departure from the team. With no seat secured for the 2023 season, he embarked on a new chapter as Red Bull’s reserve driver.
However, it wasn’t long before Ricciardo found himself back in the driver’s seat. After impressing during a tire test over the summer, he was given a seat with AlphaTauri, stepping in for Nyck de Vries, who was facing struggles.
