Daniel Ricciardo admits that he is not that disappointed with having yet to win the F1 world title than before.

Why it matters: Despite performing at a high level for a long time, the Australian has never had a real chance to fight for the championship.


  • The McLaren driver believes that maturity helped him get over frustration.
  • At the same time, Ricciardo still aims to become a world champion.

What he had to say:

  • “There was a time where I was a little bit bitter, like, ‘I should have had a title by now, this sucks, why don’t I, wrong place, wrong time’, or this or that. But maybe that’s the growth in me or the maturity where I don’t think that anymore,” Ricciardo said on Beyond the Grid podcast.
  • “I’m still here because I believe I can win a title, and I want to win a title. But I’m at peace with whatever happens, as long as I go out and leave it all on the track, I’ll get fulfilment.”
