F1 News: Ricciardo becomes McLaren driver as team unveil 2021 car MCL35M

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo will finally get behind the wheel of the new MCL35M this week but he’s already got his eye on another car.

A season after winning a bet with his old Renault boss over a tattoo, the affable Aussie is dreaming up another wager with McLaren CEO Zak Brown.

“Only a couple of hours ago we were having some lunch with Zak and he mentioned something about him hating needles,” Ricciardo said.

“So I can’t see the tattoo thing happening with Zak but we’ll think of something else. I know he’s got a pretty good car collection, so maybe we could just bet for one of his cars or something.”

Brown’s collection includes Formula One cars raced by champions such as Mario Andretti and Arton Senna and McLaren and Ferrari road vehicles.

Max Verstappen has fired back at Nico Rosberg’s comments about him realising just “how good” Lewis Hamilton is now he is going up against him so closely.

Hamilton, after slipping to third in the Portuguese Grand Prix on the weekend, pounced on a small error from Verstappen to overtake the Red Bull and then pass his teammate Valtteri Bottas to claim his second win of the season.

And after what Rosberg described as a “phenomenal” race, the 2016 world champion claimed the Dutchman was only now realising what it’s like to race Hamilton so closely every week.

Daniel Ricciardo will hope he turned a corner on Sunday when a strong showing at the Portuguese Grand Prix partially erased his qualifying nightmare in Portimao.

Nonetheless, time is swiftly running out for the Australian to find a foot hold in his intra-team battle with McLaren teammate Lando Norris, who is opening up a sizeable gap in the drivers’ championship.

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton claimed his second win of the season — but he’s far from the only thorn in Max Verstappen’s side in 2021.

These are the five things we learnt from the Portuguese Grand Prix.
