Johnny Herbert doubts Ricciardo can make top team

The Visa Cash App RB driver was tipped to replace a struggling Sergio Perez at Red Bull, after displaying positive results in the simulator upon his return to the sport.

However, his race seat may be in jeopardy all together with his current form, and reserve driver Liam Lawson waiting in the wings.

F1 winner Johnny Herbert assessed whether Ricciardo still stands a chance of partnering Max Verstappen at Red Bull.

“The last chance saloon has gone for Ricciardo,” he told Inclave Casino.

“I don’t think there is a chance for him to get back to the top. His team mate Tsunoda is faster than him and that is the sign.”

Daniel Ricciardo has responded to conversations regarding his performance and whether he will be replaced.

“In terms of the noise, people tell me like in the media, they’re like, ‘Oh, so-and-so said’ – it’s the first I’ve heard,” he said at the Australian Grand Prix.

“It’s obviously no disrespect to [the media], but I know that I’m on this little process or journey at the moment and I just need to focus on myself.

“If I let any of the noise in, it’s going to kind of distract me from the path I’m on. I haven’t let any of that negative stuff creep in.”
