Australian Formula 1 star Daniel Ricciardo’s up-and-down journey with McLaren is ready to finish this yr, with compatriot and rising star Oscar Piastri in line to exchange him in line with studies.
Motoring web site Autosport reported on Friday night time that McLaren “has officially told Daniel Ricciardo that it intends to replace him with Oscar Piastri next year”.
Piastri dominated out racing for the Renault-owned Alpine on Tuesday amid contract confusion solely hours after he had been introduced within the Formula 1 group’s 2023 driver line-up.
The 21-year-old, Alpine’s reserve and final yr’s Formula 2 champion, was set to exchange double world champion Fernando Alonso when the Spaniard joins Aston Martin on the finish of the season on a multi-year deal.
