Renault driver Ricciardo, during a live Instagram chat with Australian rules football star Nic Naitanui, has set his sights on racing again in the summer, and the prospect of a heavily condensed calendar should that be the case.
“We don’t actually know when we’re going to go and compete again and I think when we do get going, our calendar will be looking pretty hectic," said Ricciardo.
"I think they’re going try to condense and squeeze as much as they can until the new year. When I do get that call, I want to be ready.
“I would love June to happen but at the moment, they’ve cancelled or postponed everything until mid-June but that’s the perfect world. I think it will be later than that."
