Ricciardo not expecting his problems to disappear with 2022 F1 car

Daniel Ricciardo admits that he is not expecting the struggles he faced in his first year with McLaren to suddenly disappear in 2022.

The Australian had some problems in adapting to his new car in 2021, but acknowledges that he is not the first driver at the team to face this issue. With this in mind, he remains hopeful that it is something he can overcome.

“I certainly never give up hope,” Ricciardo told Auto Motor und Sport when asked whether his driving style might be better suited to the 2022 challenger.

“I’m not the first driver in the team to report the limitations with the car that I felt. I don’t want to say that some of it is in the DNA of the car because a car changes over time.

“But as far as I understand it, it’s been on McLaren’s mind for some time. Maybe it’s being talked about more than in the past. I think it could be a step in the right direction.”
