Next year, Australian Oscar Piastri will replace Daniel Ricciardo in McLaren. In the podcast Beyond The Grid, Daniel was asked what advice he would give to his countryman before the start of the debut season.
Daniel Ricciardo: "I would tell him, 'Just get behind the wheel and drive.' I know it sounds like an excuse, but you just have to sit down and go. To absorb knowledge like a sponge, not to raise the bar too high. If in the end you perform better than you expected, then everything is fine.
He just needs to move forward race by race. As long as you study and feel that you are improving with each race, you should not demand more from yourself.
Despite the fact that we did not fully understand the reasons for my failures at McLaren, this experience was useful for the team.
Perhaps they drew conclusions from those situations when we made mistakes and moved in the wrong direction. I think this experience will help Oscar, give him a kind of head start”.
