Daniel Ricciardo revealed his plans to appear in other motorsports alongside his Formula One Championship in the 2021 season.
The Honey-Badger spoke about his intentions to go on a trial run for the IndyCar and Supercar championship in 2021. Further, the driver joined a new constructor for the new season, and his new boss, Zak Brown have ties with the Walkinshaw Andretti United Supercars team.
Therefore, it solidifies the fact about the Aussie driving in two prestigious motorsports other than F1. Ricciardo further exerted his thought, “Whether it’s a private test or the actual race, I do need to do it. And I think now I have a good opportunity with Zak as a friend and a boss.
“He’s keen to try and get us into the other open-wheelers in the States, the IndyCars. So there’s a lot to do.”
Daniel Ricciardo and his future in Formula 1
The 31-year-old Australian racer made the last big move in his career, moving to McLaren after a two-year stint at Renault. Ricciardo is already in his 30s and still hasn’t got his hands on a World Championship. Therefore, failing this time in McLaren can be his last few years in Formula One.
The Honey-Badger might go for a trial run in this year’s Bathurst 1000, but the schedule clashes with the Japanese Grand Prix in October. Therefore, the McLaren driver might opt for the GT event, the Bathurst 12 Hours, which takes place in early February.
If Ricciardo fails to become a world champion with his new team, then the Australian might go behind the wheels for IndyCar or Supercar Championships.
However, Ricciardo had a beautiful start with the British constructors, claiming P7 on the 2021 driver standings after the thrilling season-opener at Bahrain. Meanwhile, his teammate Lando Norris is at P4.
However, the 31-year-old Aussie had issues with the floor of his ride at Bahrain, after the impact from Alpha Tauri’s Pierre Gasly. Thus, Ricciardo finished at seven with his skillful driving.
Daniel Ricciardo will again go behind the McLaren MCL35M in the upcoming Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari on April 18. We might even witness the Honey-Badger’s infamous ‘shoey’ at the Imola podium.
