Given the increasing strain on Daniel Ricciardo’s position in the motorsport, Christian Horner has wondered whether or not he still has the same love for Formula One.

The Red Bull Team Principal is startled by the disparity between the Australian and colleague Lando Norris and feels that Ricciardo is capable of better outcomes.

The 2022 season has been difficult for Ricciardo, who presently lags his colleague by 50 points to 15 after the Briton won the squad’s lone podium finish for the year.

The discrepancy in performance has raised questions about Ricciardo’s prospects with McLaren and in Formula 1.

In an interview with The Cambridge Union, Horner voiced his shock about Ricciardo’s difficulties.

“Daniel’s a great driver. He’s a very fast driver, and I’m surprised that he hasn’t really done more in the McLaren,” said Horner.

“Lando is doing a super job. He’s [part of] the next generation that’s coming through. I think it just shows [what happens] in sport when your head drops.”

Horner: Ricciardo is no longer confident

After leaving the race-winning Red Bull squad, Ricciardo has had trouble locating a vehicle with a reliable front-running pace.

Prior to unexpectedly winning the Italian Grand Prix for McLaren in 2021, he earned two podium places with Renault in 2020. However, both squads have often produced midfield cars.

Despite the 32-year-contract old’s expiring at the end of 2023, there has been talk that McLaren may try to replace Ricciardo due to a general performance shortfall to Norris in 2022.

In addition to Oscar Piastri, the current F2 champion, McLaren’s IndyCar racer Pato O’Ward is regarded as a potential future F1 contender.

Horner went on to explain that his troubles in 2022 might be caused by a lack of confidence or a passion for the sport.

“He [Ricciardo] was one of the most talented drivers we’ve had in our car, but confidence is such a key factor, and you can see he’s just lost his confidence,” said Horner.

“It looks like he’s almost lost his love for the sport a bit, and I think he just needs to re-find that.

“He needs to discover that again because he’s a better driver than he’s showing is at the moment.”
