The new McLaren recruit Daniel Ricciardo motivated his team’s crew ahead of the season. The Australian was P6 during final qualification and P7 after crossing the chequered flag at the recently concluded Bahrain Grand Prix and wants his team to ‘keep pushing’ further.
Ricciardo joined the British automobile giants this year with a three year contract that will see him stay with the team till 2023. The 31-year-old driver in a YouTube video released by McLaren was seen motivating the McLaren crew and called for more commitment and passion for the team.
In the video, the ‘honey badger’ conveyed, “I know you guys without me have obviously got to a good level already, but I know we’re all willing to obviously not be satisfied to the winning, so let’s keep pushing till we get there. As I stand here, let’s go to war.”
New season, new challenge for Daniel Ricciardo
The former Renault driver also mentioned how great last season was for him. In fact, Ricciardo was ahead than both the McLaren drivers Carlos Sainz Jr. and Lando Norris in last year’s driver’s standings.
Daniel, 31 stated on last season’s performance, “Last year was awesome. We had an awesome year, we put in a lot of hardwork. I think we all be very happy with the work we did. I just wanna say we need to keep working very hard.”
Talking about the current season’s scenario, Daniel further asserted, “It’s gonna be a tight season, probably tighter than last year even. I think all we’d have asked for to see it for me is Passion, I really do, keep digging.”

The Formula One pundits believe McLaren are the hot favorites to give Red Bull and Mercedes a run for their money this season. Lando Norris being P4 and Ricciardo being P7 in current driver’s standings are expected to go great guns. With such promising performance from the duo, this might be a season to look out for the Woking-based team.
