After a psychologically draining season in which he did not execute to the best of his ability. Daniel Ricciardo has said that his choice to take a break from racing the next year is an effort to rejuvenate and rebuild himself.

In an interview with Speedcafe, the Australian discussed his worries about regressing. After a season in which he lost to colleague Lando Norris for the second time in many years.

Ricciardo gave the following reasons for choosing Red Bull as his test driver for 2023:

“It’s undoubtedly a method for me to continue being active while also giving me the time I need to go backward. As the second half of the season progressed. I just wanted to take a break, regroup, and rediscover my great love for the show. Because if you don’t have it at this level, I’m not doing myself or anybody else around me justice. I don’t think I’ve lost it, but I’m afraid of it.”

Ricciardo spoke on the life of an F1 driver, stating that things can get tiresome and taxing when things don’t go your way.

He remarked: “It is both a privilege and a demand. Although we are excellent at what we do, we are still just human, and as such, we sometimes get worn out. And at this level of athletics, you can’t even be working at 99 percent; that’s risky. So I genuinely felt as if I was afraid that if I completed another year, I wouldn’t be at my best.”

In 2023, Daniel Ricciardo desired to be associated with a premier squad

The reasoning behind Daniel Ricciardo’s decision to rejoin Red Bull was outlined. The Australian believes that being a part of a successful team can only be beneficial when trying to figure out what one should do. He stated:

“Naturally, there were discussions with other teams. And I thought, ‘Okay, let me at least be associated with a top team if I’m not on the grid.’ Being in a winning atmosphere is good because, in my opinion, you learn a lot. If there isn’t a seat available with them, they may be able to assist in finding a seat elsewhere.”

He said: “Additionally, living with a high team and being associated with them. Similar to how (Nyck) de Vries did with Mercedes, makes me feel like you are more. Although I don’t like to say it, you seem to be more well-known and less forgotten.”

It will be fascinating to see whether the Australian has any new alternatives for the 2024 campaign. The 2022 season concluded, and Ricciardo departed McLaren.
