Daniel Ricciardo admits that he does not feel bad about leaving Red Bull, especially in the 2021 season.
The 32-year-old announced a shocking move from Red Bull Racing to Renault back in the 2018 season. In 2021, the Australian drives for McLaren, which has been a difficult experience so far for him, while Red Bull is in incredible form and fights for the title. However, Ricciardo does not regret making that decision three years ago.
“I don’t have regrets. I think I made every decision for a reason and every decision you make is a time or a moment in your life that is right or best at that time. I certainly don’t look back with regret or I don’t question anything,” he said.
More than that, he is happy to see Red Bull achieving these results.
“I look at their results this year – I guess that’s probably where the question comes from, ‘do I think that could have been me?’ But I look at that and I’m honestly happy for them,” Ricciardo commented.
“Don’t get me wrong, I would love to be doing the winning, but I’m happy for them that they’re challenging Mercedes and they look like they’re in a real hunt for the title this year. I briefly caught up with Christian [Horner] in Austria and a few of the Red Bull guys and I was actually stoked that they’re doing what they’re doing. Certainly no regrets.”
