Daniel Ricciardo “I accept I can’t be in F1 in 2023″[F1-Gate.com]

Daniel Ricciardo says he is open to the idea he could spend a year away from F1 in 2023.

Daniel Ricciardo’s departure from McLaren was linked to Enstone’s return to the team for the 2023 season when news broke that Fernando Alonso had left the Alpine F1 team for Aston Martin.

However, after that, there is no mention of the scenario of a return to Alpine F1 for Daniel Ricciardo. Seats for Williams and the Haas F1 team remain a possibility, but other drivers appear to be eyeing those opportunities.

It therefore appears that the idea of ​​taking a sabbatical from F1 for 2023 is at the forefront of Daniel Ricciardo’s plans.

“I accept that if I can’t be on the grid next year, I have no problem with that,” Ricciardo told Fox Sports.

“I’m not going to do anything to put me on the grid if it’s not right or makes sense, and my management team agree they’re not going to do anything.”

“Obviously it’s been a challenge this year and if you’re on the grid you want to know it’s somewhere you enjoy and where you feel you can succeed and in an environment where you feel that you can succeed.”

In the previous round F1 Italian GP, ​​Daniel Ricciardo appeared to end the race three in a row no points in McLaren. However, a water leak occurred with eight laps to go while he was running eighth, and he dropped out of contention for the points.

“Days like this are certainly quite frustrating,” said Daier Ricciardo after the race.

“But if you give me 24, 48 hours, I’ll try to get over it and figure out what’s best for next year.”

“I’m not overconfident or cocky, but if it’s not what it’s supposed to be, then that’s perfectly fine. I’m not very proud of it either.”

“Certainly I haven’t given up on securing a seat, but that’s what’s on my mind at the moment.”

With six races remaining in the 2022 season, Daniel Ricciardo is currently 14th in the F1 drivers’ standings, 69 points and seven places behind teammate Lando Norris.
