McLaren boss Brown hints at new Ricciardo bet

McLaren boss Zak Brown has hinted that there will be a new bet with Daniel Ricciardo this season after Ricciardo won their wager in 2021.

At the beginning of last year, Brown made a deal with Ricciardo that, if the Australian achieved a podium finish, he would get the chance to drive his idol Dale Earnhardt’s No3 Chevrolet, which features in Brown’s extensive collection of historic road and racing cars.

Ricciardo subsequently earned his prize by winning the Italian Grand Prix, and now Brown’s thoughts are turning to what they will decide to bet on in 2022.

“There is no new bet yet, but it’s now being discussed,” Brown told media including

“I guess it’s that time of [the] pre-season to start having some fun and thinking about what we might want to do to celebrate some sort of success that we have together.”
