Ricciardo reveals Ferrari talks ahead of McLaren move

Ricciardo reveals Ferrari talks ahead of McLaren move

Daniel Ricciardo has confirmed he held talks with Ferrari over a move before joining McLaren.

Ricciardo was heavily linked to the vacancy at Ferrari when Sebastian Vettel announced that 2020 would be his last season with the Scuderia.

"There have been discussions already from a few years back. And that continued all the way through to now," Ricciardo told CNN. "So yeah, I won't deny that. But obviously it's never really come to fruition."

Ricciardo's Italian heritage, both his mother and father being of Italian descent, has led to consistent speculation that he will eventually drive for the Scuderia.

"I don't know actually and I've never really chose to dive too deep into it," continued Ricciardo. "Everyone says it would be a good fit, obviously, with my name and all the background stuff, but yeah, I try not to get emotionally caught up in any kind of situation.

"I see how Carlos is a fit for the team. So I don't really look at it like 'why not me?' I just look at it: Yeah, Carlos had a very strong 2019. Yeah, he's a bit of hot property right now, and I guess it's a good fit for where they are at."
