Seidl “absolutely convinced” Ricciardo can recover form

McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl believes that Daniel Ricciardo will manage to recover his form.

Despite his victory at the 2021 Italian GP, Ricciardo had had a difficult stretch with McLaren. The Australian struggled to adapt to the machinery and was regularly outperformed by Lando Norris.

Ricciardo will leave the Woking-based outfit after the 2022 season though the deal was set to expire in 2023. Furthermore, the 33-year-old risks to miss next season.

Seidl thinks that Ricciardo will make a recovery despite the setbacks.

“I’m absolutely convinced that is possible because I’ve seen that in the past myself. I experienced it with other drivers and we have seen that in the past with other drivers,” he commented.

“In the end, we have to accept on both sides that despite all the effort we have put in, the commitment, despite all we have tried on our side, despite everything he has tried on his side, we didn’t manage to do it together. And in the end, that is a shared responsibility between Daniel and us. As I said, I fully take my responsibility in this as well.

“But that doesn’t change the respect I have and we all have for Daniel as a person, but also as a as a racing driver. And you have to accept sometimes it just doesn’t work out. Unfortunately, that happened between us and Daniel. I hope that at his next adventure that he’s starting, that he makes it click again and it works.”
