Ricciardo also touched upon his return to AlphaTauri, acknowledging that while he returned to the Red Bull sister team, his ultimate desire was to conclude his career with Red Bull.
"We are also getting a little more support from Red Bull, the energy is going in the right place and then we'll see," Ricciardo said about Red Bull cooperation.
"Obviously my goal is to return to Red Bull one day, that's the fairytale and I would love to finish my career there. But I also try not to get caught up in that.
"That's why I call it a fairy tale, because it's not a reality or a certainty until it actually happens. I want to perform as well as I can with this team and fourth place in Mexico [qualifying] makes me so happy."
With the contracts of both Ricciardo and Sergio Perez set to expire at the end of the 2024 season, the prospect of the honey badger making a return to Red Bull becomes a possibility.
