Daniel Ricciardo on thin ice – heading

He’s done

Zac Brown

Clearly Brown is not happy. He was speaking from Indianapolis where he was supporting McLaren’s team in the Indy 500 and no doubt keeping a close eye on their young protégé, Pato O’Ward.

Only last week, Arrow McLaren — their Indy Car team — extended their contract with O’Ward to the end of 2025. Brown has also said he wants to give the Mexican driver an outing in F1 during a practice session. O’Ward has already driven in a test after the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi last year.

erta has also been tipped as a possible replacement if Ricciardo were to leave. He was the youngest driver to win an IndyCar race and F1 would certainly love an American on the grid as they continue to break into that market.
