Ricciardo reveals DREAM F1 career ending

Daniel Ricciardo has confirmed the dream ending to his Formula 1 career following his full-time return to the sport with VCARB.

The Australian driver was left without a drive following his McLaren departure at the end of 2022 and has found his way back into the sport with the team that gave him his first full-time seat.

But with Sergio Perez’s expiring Red Bull contract, there’s an added incentive for the ‘Honey Badger’ to perform well this year.

It may have taken some time for him to reach the conclusion that perhaps he should never have left Red Bull, and that maybe he would’ve been a world champion by now.

Ricciardo: It's a perfect way to finish my career

Speaking to the media ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix, Ricciardo spoke about his future goals ahead of the 2024 season.

"No, it's not going to be a distraction [a Red Bull seat], I know it's somewhere in my head,” he said. “I feel it's a perfect way to finish my career in Formula 1, go back to full circle.

"But now my goal is to push this car as hard as I can and try and do some results which make people smile and myself smile.

“If it leads to that in the course of time then that's great and wonderful, but it's not my focus, it's a long term thing for now.

"My focus is here and I will do my best with this car and this team to try and get them in the points."

VCARB and Ricciardo could be in contention to score points in Bahrain this weekend, having shown promising pace at pre-season testing.

Data suggests that they could be the fifth or sixth fastest car, putting them right in the midfield mixer come Saturday’s race.
