Ricciardo's quest for a world title may well propel him forward, determined to etch his name among the all-time F1 greats - but he also insists whether that happens or not, he will not change as a human being.
“Do I still want to be world champion? Yes," Ricciardo told the Beyond The Grid podcast.
“Has it been a dream of mine since I was a kid? Yes. But it’s not going to change me as a human, therefore it’s not going to change my life, moving forward.”
