Daniel Ricciardo rocked by $18m legal claim over F1 move to Renault

Published

Daniel Ricciardo has vowed to defend himself after the Aussie F1 star’s former advisor reportedly started legal action over what he alleges are unpaid earnings.

Per Motorsport.com and the BBC, Glenn Beavis has taken the matter to the United Kingdom High Court of Justice and is claiming he is owed nearly $AUD18 million because he has not received commissions relating to Ricciardo’s lucrative new contract with Renault, who the 30-year-old driver joined this year.

According to the reports, Beavis has lodged legal documents with the High Court, arguing he is owed approximately $18m for “various sums due in accordance with the commission agreed between the parties”.

Ricciardo left Red Bull at the end of 2018 and made the shock decision to join Renault on a two-year deal. Reports circulated in the British press earlier this year claiming Ricciardo’s salary was nudging $50 million but the West Australian rubbished those suggestions.

Ricciardo issued a statement to Motorsport.com about the $18 million bombshell in which he said: “There is no substance to Glenn Beavis’ claim.

Tailem Bend remains a relative unknown for the Supercars paddock despite the championship hosting its maiden event at the new South Australian circuit 12 months ago.

The stakes are high heading to next week’s OTR SuperSprint, with Scott McLaughlin looking to consolidate his 433-point championship lead ahead of a trip to New Zealand before the three critical Pirtek Enduro Cup events.

The Ford Mustang has been the pace setter for McLaughlin and Shell V-Power Racing all season, with the reigning champion claiming 14 race wins in 2019. However, the Ford teams struggled at The Bend last year.
