McLaren Admit They’re “Disappointed” In Ricciardo’s “Difficult” Transition

  • Gepubliceerd op 25 dagen geleden

    Formula World

    McLaren’s two drivers are having contrasting seasons so far. Lando Norris is fourth in the championship and has already scored three podiums in the first 9 races. Daniel Ricciardo in comparison is eighth and sixth is the best position he has finished in a race so far. Ricciardo has now reflected on his time with McLaren while his team principal Andreas Seidl has given the team’s stance on Ricciardo as well

    I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:

    Are McLaren Disappointed In Daniel Ricciardo?

    Ricciardo started off by explaining how he expected more as quoted by Motorsport

    “Did I expect more? Absolutely. But I think if every weekend I go into it now expecting to be quicker than Lando, or whatever it is, I'm probably just going to end up resenting the sport, because clearly it's going to take a bit more”

    He admitted that there is something missing

    “Clearly there's something that is missing. I feel good in the car, especially the last three weeks, it's felt better”

    He then looked at his teammate’s performance this season

    “I don't want to say, what's the word, wave the white flag, or succumb to whatever it is, I'm just going to not really focus or lose too much energy on that, and just accept that he's driving very well. The aim is to obviously get closer, and help the team out as well”

    McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl, meanwhile, confirmed that there is a feeling of disappointment on both sides while speaking to RTL

    "I don't think he imagined it would be so difficult to change teams. He's disappointed, so are we. Because we thought it would be faster”

    He signed off by being confident that Ricciardo can still turn it around

    “I am still convinced that at some point it will click with him”

    Williams’ George Russell is “really pleased that Lewis is staying in the sport. He's clearly a global superstar and is still driving at an exceptional level”

    “Personally [he wants] to compete against the best drivers in the world and [he honestly thinks they] have a really good group of drivers on the grid at the moment who deserve to be here”

    Red Bull’s Max Verstappen has stated that “Daniel [Ricciardo] was very good but I raced against him at a time when I was a bit younger and inexperienced myself”

    “That's why I can't really compare him to Sergio Perez”, Max added

    He further specified that his “relationship with Perez is excellent and things are going extremely well with the team. [They] are now leading the title race and [he hopes they] can continue to do so this year”

    AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly has reiterated that there is “interest [from other teams]; I’m trying my best, showing my potential, giving my best with AlphaTauri”

    He hopes that “this year [they] can get the best result in the team championship for the team, the best ever since the team joined in Formula 1”

    “That’s [his] goal personally and then yes, [he’ll] see going forward what are the most attractive options”

    Williams CEO Jost Capito is “very disappointed [but he’s] very happy that everybody is disappointed because four weeks ago everybody would have triumphed for 11th place”

    Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has explained that Max Verstappen is just “a DNF away. And [Lewis Hamilton is] in the hunt again”

    “If we look at Baku and the potential, and look at the other races, overall, we need to up our game, make less mistakes, and continue to understand the car better and then we are massively in the hunt”, Wolff suggested

    F1’s managing director Ross Brawn is “nervous, but that's normal. [He thinks they've] put a lot of work into organising sprint qualifying, so there's a good chance of success”

    “[They] need to get the fans involved and make sure [they] have a race that really fascinates them. [He thinks] that will work, but [they] won't know until [they] get there”

    “The best thing that can happen is that sprint qualifying becomes part of a Grand Prix weekend. Maybe not every race, but we want to stress that we want to extend the weekend”, he added

    Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz feels that they “are working together as a team and pushing as hard as [they] can to move the team forward”

    “There will be races where Charles [Leclerc] is clearly better and other races where I have to pass him, like I did in Portimao’”, Sainz added


    Do you think the sprint qualifying will be a success?

Dirty Hamilton. When you drive someone off the track almost killing him. You only get 10 second penalty. (Not a real penalty when your car normally finishes 40 seconds in front of others)

I'm late in watching this, but seriously Toto? Being happy about being in the running because I driver may have an incident that takes them out of the race is just bad sportsmanship. Like Lewis, Max is an amazing driver paired with an amazing car... don't hope for the easy way out... I highly doubt Lewis is hoping for a DNF... but F1 is the football (Soccer) of motorsports... Yay drama...

To be honest I think Ricardo lost his mojo awhile back already, if you in a slow car too long you forget what you can do. He is one of the best overtakers to date so he definitely has the talent. I think it's just an internal war for him

I'm not a fan of riccardo, sorry, I always found him too cocky, and the salary he gets wow, it's like a champions salary, for like seven wins, life is fast unfortunately, you won't get away with excuses in ordinary job, those who can't keep up get left behind unfortunately, people and the commentators are always so forgiving when it comes to riccardo, they never as forgiving when it comes to Sebastian vettel, Sebastian Vettel had two hard first races, one where he got the penalty when Mazepin brought out the yellow flag, and then his incident, in the race, and then next race the team didn't had car ready in time, or so, he had difficulty, he had to adapt, but the people and the commentators were all over it, writing him off, I'm. Sebastian vettel fan, true and true, Sebastian is a star,

Ricciardo like Vettel, is past his prime and just refuses to acknowledge it. They act like they're top dogs when they can't even beat rookies coming into the sport. They could learn a thing or two from the likes of Kimi and Fernando.

I don't think that it is about adjustment anymore with Ricciardo but that the car does not suit his driving style. He has already done several races and I am sure he will be spending hours on the simulator so I don't think that we will see any changes.

i feel like if Mick or Nikita drove this McLaren. They would match how RIC performs haha. I hope RIC will get the hang of it. It's getting sad seeing the results from race to race. I think Sainz adapted quickly to the Ferrari because he is the type of driver who adapts to the car more then changes a bit here and there versus RIC's changing the settings of the Mclaren so that the machine adapts to his style. But I really don't know. Hoping this gets sorted soon

Very disappointing from Toto to 'hope' Max will get an DNF, instead of bringing the fight to the track!! "Just a matter of time for a DNF, and then Lewis will be there"?! 😂😂 Didn't Max had a DNF in Baku?! 🤔 Lewis whas there... and then he wasn't!! I think it's just mindblowing the level of bad sportmanship mercedes is showing.. such sore losers, it's almost pathetic.

Every Australian enthusiast is disappointed also. WTF is going on to make this happen. I think we all need to give Daniel some time in a McLaren and then be a judge of him. Currently he has few races and the feel of the car is not with him yet. Good things come to those with Patience. So everyone out there grow some now for Daniels sake and stick with him. He is a champion driver for sure.

Something doesn't add up. The team has all the data on both drivers and can see moment to moment who is braking early or late, full throttle or not, etc. They can tell Daniel exactly where and how he is losing time to Lando each lap. Either the cars are not matched or Daniel is not getting or applying the data. It does not make sense that they are allowed to be this far apart for more than a weekend.

I think Daniel would have performed better if he came into a team with a equal aged or older team mate. He works more better when he is a hunter trying to take down a established teammate than being hunted by a younger team mate trying to outgun him.

To be fair though, Daniel did gain 5 positions in the Last race. Qualifying is the main issue now but if they can get that sorted, he could be get them better results. Plus, his experience, which is something Lando has little to non of compared to Daniel, is very important for them going forward with the changes

I honestly feel DR is only a couple of races from a top four finish. He has a great driving style and it is a shame Mclaren are having issues giving him a car that suits his style, not the other way around. When he comes good everybody will be saying how great he is again. This is such a fickle sport. He is one of the best things to happen to F1. Hope he stays for many more years to come. C'mon Danny

Ok - I think Gasly is aproached by McLaren. They will get Porsche engines for next generation, so there is a chance to get back into top tier with them. Ricciardo will be dropped and Williams will be his next station. Williams is going to fight in midfield with Aston Martin, RedBull-B und Ferrari-B next year.
