Current Daniel Ricciardo

He has not bottled the challenge he can see that Red Bull don't value him highly enough all the best drivers and those who want to be champion know that they have to leave the team they once owned because they are not regarded as the favoured son ,,, Prost, Alonso , Vettel to name a few...

if Daniel beats Max and then demands he wants $40m do you think Red Bull will pay him the money to justify this ? He is at a different stage of his career to say when Button was going against Hamilton at Mclaren and getting paid less

Watched a interview with him where he said he a Max got along well, both hated being beaten by the other but dont hate each other.
Even went as far as to say he wasnt that upset with Max after the Baku accident what really upset him was the was the way RB handled it.
I think that was the moment he realised he didnt have a future with RBR.

220 which is my point exactly. Red Bull could have had a quiet word with Max that you don't take out your teammate. It was more they came out with 50-50 or maybe 60-40 towards Daniel's fault

He should be grateful. Over-rated has-been nobody misplaced favourites of yesteryear should take what they can get, and skulk back to drearyland - their chosen home.

vintly is most def not a Ricciardo fan. I'm willing to put 20 quid to a charity of your choice on the fact Danny Ric will win another race during his career.

Well !
Whatever has Danny done to vintly .
What an outburst. I’m shocked.
More by the outburst from our otherwise tolerant vintly, than the sentiment..
:D

Heheh Ricciardo has never done anything to bring me down Titch – only himself. Won't be long he'll be out of the F1 picture. Apparently he's in talks with Clark's Shoes about a kids' trainer that you can use to drink Ribena from, and he's writing a book of jokes about his balls, so good luck to him.

RasputinLives trying to claw back some of the inevitable Ham-to-Ferrari losses that you’re gonna rack up I see. Hmm let me think on that... nice idea though.

vintly on the contrary I though I was being very generous in offering you a way of getting back the money you are clearly going to lose on the Ham bet ;)

maybe but at moment it rely upon on red bull 08 > 09 transformation in 2021 or a seat in top 3 team by process of elimination is a ferrari seat. but its possible because as i said with alonso can you imagine in october 2006 hes 24? won his 2nd consective F1 world title. he will never win another world championship or after 2013 spanish GP he will never win another F1 race. both wouldve sounded absolutely ludicrous at the time. but came to pass

So his contract with Renault is only for two years and $60 million. Impressive. Can't blame him for moving at that price. He is well set up for 2021, having been the team leader at Renault, if they are getting their act together he can stay at the given rate of $30 million a year.....or.....he can move if a seat is open at Mercedes, Ferrari or Red Bull. The problem is that there may not be any seats open at those three teams in 2021, unless he wants to be the #2 driver to Hamilton, Leclerc and Verstappen. Might end up staying at Renault.

I can't watch his interviews because they're so cringe worthy. I think he may be obsessed with genitalia because it's they're a reoccurring theme in his interviews.
I would have liked too seen if he could have beaten Verstappen this season after his bad run of luck last year which put Verstappen a long way ahead of him in the standings. They're both consistently fast drivers.

Do you mean he bottled his career by moving to Renault?

Edit: I tend to think that he would have lost because Verstappen has matured this season but I think Verstappen and Ricciardo would have pushed each other and it would be quite close.

@Bernoullii I mean I think that he ran from the fight against Max in an equal Red Bull. Either that or he genuinely thought or got sold the idea that Renault would be quickly competitive and he’d have more chance of glory there. Which would have been naive in the extreme. I like his driving style although I don’t think he’s in the top 5 or 6 current drivers and won miss him as he slides into mediocrity.
