Ralf Schumacher, the former Formula One driver has pointed out the tussle between McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris. The Woking based team looks quite strong this season with two of the finest drivers spearheading their Constructor Championship.
Daniel being the long time player in Formula One and being more experienced than his teammate Lando, is expected to have an advantage. However, the situation is not quite the same in McLaren. It’s the opposite where Norris had the better start to the season than his teammate.
New year, new look, same smile 😄

The German former driver in an interview with Speedweek conveyed, “Formula 1 is developing very quickly, Daniel Ricciardo is behind, and we’ve seen his usual smile get a little lost. Of course it stinks to him, as he was inferior to his team-mate Lando Norris until Barcelona. Ricciardo knows: Actually he, Daniel, should be the team leader.”
Riccardo joined the Orange brigade this season after quite an interesting season with Renault last year. New team, new car and new management, so everyone’s expecting him to settle down here. However, Formula One is fast, so everything that changes here is also fast.
The next race up ahead in F1 is Monaco Grand Prix. Daniel has a quote good record in Monaco lately. It’ll be interesting to see if he can continue his form in here and get the better of Lando Norris.

Talking on this context, Junior Schumacher further asserted, “Daniel has captured two of his three pole positions in Monaco, he should have won in 2017, a mistake by the team when changing tyres cost the triumph, and in 2018 he made up for it. This is a driver who feels very comfortable in Monaco. The question will be how comfortable he feels in the McLaren in order to be able to play to his full strength.”
