Three weeks on from McLaren’s bombshell announcement that Daniel Ricciardo will be dropped at the end of the season despite having a contract for 2023, the eight-times grand prix winner is still without a job for next year.
But could Ricciardo take a role Lewis Hamilton says he is too good for? That’s a question Ricciardo must ask himself as he considers whether to pursue a path usually taken by those at the start of their Formula 1 career and take a reserve driver role?
It’s hard to imagine a driver who has been an F1 star for the past decade being willing to sit on the sidelines and it’s unlikely Ricciardo would see himself doing that.
Unless, that is, it’s with a team that might just offer him a pathway back to the front of the F1 grid. So who better than Mercedes, the pre-eminent F1 team of the past decade?
