McLaren’s Zak Brown: Ricciardo Has ’Not Met His or Our Expectations’

Daniel Ricciardo has experienced a less than ideal start to the season. 

Not only did he test positive for COVID-19, which ultimately sidelined him during part of preseason testing, the Australian has only finished in the top 10 once over the span of six races. Comparatively, his McLaren teammate Lando Norris has broken into the top 10 four times, including snagging a podium finish in Imola. 

But being outdriven by Norris has shown flashes of being a theme since joining McLaren in 2021. Ricciardo went from tallying seven wins for Red Bull from 2014-18 to then going winless for two years with Renault. He then joined McLaren, tallying a single win in 2021 but no other podiums.
