Following his selection as Red Bull‘s third driver, Daniel Ricciardo has the opportunity to change the course of his Formula One career “on a dime,” according to former manager Zak Brown.

This year, the Australian and McLaren reached an early separation agreement after the collaboration fell short of expectations.

After considering his options for 2023, Ricciardo decided to join Red Bull as their third driver for the next season as he plans to return to racing full-time in 2024.

And although some have questioned if Ricciardo has chosen the best path to maintain his notoriety. McLaren CEO Brown thinks it might provide him an instant opportunity to demonstrate that he still has what it takes to succeed in Formula 1.

He used former Mercedes reserve, Nyck de Vries, as an example. At the Italian Grand Prix, de Vries filled in admirably for Alex Albon at Williams. As a result, he was offered a racing seat at AlphaTauri for 2023.

Brown from Red Bull: “Look at what occurred with Nyck after one terrific session. All of a sudden, he was in demand”

Ricciardo said, “So if one of those guys [at Red Bull] couldn’t race for whatever reason. And he [Ricciardo] came in. All of a sudden he brought the vehicle to where it is today, it can simply change on a dime.”

When asked by Motorsport.com whether his candidate would have been better off accepting a full-time ride with Haas, Brown said, “It’s impossible to know. One option to kind of resurface on the radar is to go to Haas and then hand it to [Kevin] Magnussen.

The second scenario is when a Red Bull driver receives a COVID, wins the race, and then returns to the starting line. Thus, I believe it is difficult to predict which will provide the greatest chance.

When it became evident during the summer break that Ricciardo was available. Brown said he was surprised that Ricciardo was not snatched up by other teams.

He stated, “I’m shocked that some of the other teams who were looking for drivers didn’t choose him. But I also believe that there were other teams for whom he had no interest in driving. So maybe they would have chosen him.”

But it’s obvious that he wants to continue playing. Eight races is a big number of races to win, but he won Monza last year. Therefore, it is there; we simply couldn’t unlock it. We’d want to see Daniel on the grid, so perhaps something will open it in a different setting.
