Ricciardo admits insufficient results to be promoted to Red Bull

Since his return to F1 During the season last year, we kept hearing that Daniel Ricciardo came back to put pressure on Sergio Pérez in order to get his seat back in 2025. Failure! Despite the numerous rumors in the transfer market, Red Bull preferred to focus on continuity, extending Checo until 2026.

A hard blow for Danny Ric' even if given his campaign it seemed improbable to see him promoted from Faenza in Milton Keynes. Several reasons explain this as the 9th loomse Grand Prix of the season. First of all, he is dominated by his garage neighbor Yuki tsunoda. Beyond the domination of Nippon, Daniel Ricciardo appears very feverish with only one finish in the points, during the Sprint in Miami in May. Apart from that, the Australian suffered with mixed performances. A situation that he fully recognizes when discussing his non-promotion.

« I analyze my season honestly and I know that although Miami has been amazing, one good result won't be enough when you are perhaps trying to secure a place at the top of the pecking order., he emphasizes from RDS. It's not sufficient. I've probably been frustrated with some of my performances, because I don't have the same consistency from week to week."

The Red Bull option definitively ruled out, at least in the short term when he says he must “ do better » to return there, Daniel Ricciardo must also concentrate on the rest of the season to hope to keep his place at RB. In recent hours, Helmut Marko spoke the game of musical chairs in the Austrian fold. If he spilled the beans by saying that Yuki Tsunoda will be reappointed, he did not do the same for No. 3. No doubt a way of sending him a message as he often does.

In charge of promotion formulas (F2, F3, FRECA, F4...). Carried by the grace of Franco Colapinto.

The "Honey Badger" will have to pull out his fingers... because Lawson is patiently biding his time while perhaps being interested in other opportunities outside the Red Bull fold!
