Nico Hulkenberg is finding Daniel Ricciardo’s struggles for performance baffling, having seen no signs of it during their time as teammates.

Ricciardo moved to McLaren in 2021 and it quickly became evident that, unlike at Renault, the Australian was struggling to get the most out of his car.


Despite winning in Italy, Ricciardo’s confidence seemed to take a dash – to the point where, at the end of 2022, McLaren bought him out of the final year of his contract.
