Button advised Ricciardo not to switch to Mercedes
Jenson Button believes that the McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo should not become a Mercedes reservist
The 2009 world champion Jenson Button believes that the McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo should not become a Mercedes reservist.
Jenson Button: "If a rider of Ricciardo's caliber becomes a reservist, it will be a very strange situation. I do not know what he can get out of it.
He's not a young driver, so no one will let him drive in Friday practice. he won't get anything. He believes he can replace Lewis when he finishes his career. But Lewis says he wants to perform for another five years. Then he will have to wait a very long time.
He needs to get a place in the team in 2024, otherwise his career will be over, years later everyone will forget about you in Formula 1”.
