Now, Ricciardo has revealed in a LinkedIn post his thoughts while waiting on the sidelines during the early stages of 2023.
“A part of me knows, I like being back in the Red Bull Family, I know they can throw these curveballs, if you will, at you, so I try to remind myself to stay on my toes and be ready, just in case," the Australian commented.
“But yeah, I didn’t think it was going to come maybe that soon. In the end, this is where I want to be, I want to be back on the grid, and I was so happy being back in the Red Bull family that it was an opportunity that I didn’t want to miss.
“So I kind of just used all that as, all right, well, this is it. Like it reminded me of when I started my career and when Red Bull would kind of throw the kitchen sink at me.“
