Australian race car driver Daniel Ricciardo, 33, made his Formula One debut in 2021 after joining the McLaren team, but there have been a lot of issues that have complicated his journey since then.
Ricciardo is now driving alongside Lando Norris, a British young but talented driver whose performance is improving day by day, and so the Aussie suggested to his team that he would drive well like the Brit if he was provided with a better car.
