Ricciardo Delays F1 Return to United States GP
After being paid by McLaren to leave the team for this season, Daniel Ricciardo was called upon to replace sacked AlphaTauri driver Nyck de Vries from Hungary. However, his return to the Formula 1 circuit has been further delayed.
During a practice session at Zandvoort, the Australian driver suffered an unfortunate accident that resulted in a broken metacarpal in his left hand. As a result, Ricciardo had to undergo immediate surgery in Spain to address the injury.
Initially, there were hopes that Ricciardo would be able to make a comeback in time for the Qatar Grand Prix. However, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner stated that the Australian driver is focusing on making a full recovery before returning to the racing scene.
Now, it seems that Ricciardo’s return will be pushed even further, as he has decided to delay his return until the United States Grand Prix. This decision comes as a precautionary measure to ensure that the driver is fully healed and ready to compete at his best.
Ricciardo’s absence from the Formula 1 grid has been felt by both fans and teams alike. Known for his charismatic personality and impressive driving skills, the Australian driver has become a favorite among supporters of the sport.
As Ricciardo continues his recovery, many eagerly await his return to the track. The United States Grand Prix, set to take place at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, promises to be an exciting event that fans won’t want to miss.
With Ricciardo delaying his return, the question remains: who will fill his seat in the meantime? The Formula 1 rumor mill has been abuzz with speculation about potential replacements. However, McLaren has yet to announce who will take over until Ricciardo is ready to reclaim his position.
In the meantime, Formula 1 enthusiasts can stay updated on the latest developments and news surrounding Ricciardo’s recovery. While his absence is disappointing, it is crucial for the driver to prioritize his health and well-being above all else.
As the countdown to the United States Grand Prix continues, fans eagerly anticipate Ricciardo’s comeback and the thrilling racing moments that await them on the track.
