Daniel Ricciardo is perhaps the biggest disappointment of the Formula 1 season so far.
While Lando Norris in the McLaren has already finished in the top ten, ten times this year and c
ollected 76 championship points, the Australian has only scored points four times with only 19 points.
The British team has long been working on an alternative to Ricciardo and is signing top talent rookie driver Oscar Piastri.
McLaren is said to have to dig deep with a huge pay off for Ricciardo.
In order to buy this clause from the 33-year-old, McLaren must pay the eight-time Grand Prix winner
the equivalent of more than 20 million euros. At least that is what the Australian website
speedcafe.com reported. Also, racingnews365 wrote an article on the subject.
