McLaren’s new duo of Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris are often seen as two of the most easy-going and fun-loving drivers on the current grid and as teammates, there are expectations from fans that these two will form some sort of a comedic pairing. Daniel Ricciardo feels otherwise and he has now explained why to Sky Sports

Ricciardo started off reminiscing about the podiums he scored with his former team Renault
“I mean, generally, I am happy, I really am. I feel like there was certainly a lot of pressure externally and even internally to get the podium and we managed to do it twice”
He then emphasised the importance of those podiums
“I can honestly leave here feeling fulfilled. I think importantly for myself feeling like I contributed something back to this team. Really it was the podiums, and just to see the joy not only on my face but also on the team’s face. It had been so long”
He then addressed the expectations fans have for his upcoming stint with McLaren alongside Lando Norris
“It's something I want to reiterate to everyone watching, and every fan of McLaren in particular”
“It's not going to be a comedy show. I'm going there for business, I'm going there to improve the car”
He signed off by reemphasizing his point of view
"My personality won't change so I think I do enjoy doing what I do... but I'm certainly not going there to be this meme power couple or whatever it's described as these days!”

Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz has joked that his career isn’t following a trajectory similar to that of Alpine’s Fernando Alonso as he has “already driven at Renault, but” he “didn't get the two world championships”
He added that Alonso “has been an extremely strong driver, and there will never be another Fernando Alonso”
He also explained that Alonso “was the first, a pioneer in many ways, and” that he is “just trying to make” his “own career”
He further stated that he has his “own way of doing things, of seeing things, of driving and” he “will see where that takes” him
2009 world champion Jenson Button has suggested that “there are so many positives to” the Extreme E championship and he’s “really excited about it”
He confirmed that he is “looking forward to racing against the best in the world, in places that most people have never been” to
Former F1 driver Jos Verstappen thinks that they “were fighting more with the car” during their time “because they weren't as balanced”
He, however, accepts that “the G-forces experienced with modern Formula One cars are much higher”
He further feels that “if you are good, you can adapt to any car. Whether it's a Formula One or a GT, you just have to adapt to the situation”
Fernando Alonso “had other things on” his “mind, and” his “head was busy with IndyCar and the 'Triple Crown' goal” when he previously decided to step away from F1
He added that he “had too many things in” his “head that were not F1 related. F1 was not attractive to” him “at that time, it didn't offer what other series offered”
He further “thought this was the right time to come back, even with the new regulations in 2022” “after completing some of those challenges” he had set for himself “missing only the Indy500”
Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has confirmed that “Maya Weug will compete in a Formula 4 championship, which is considered the first step in single-seaters on the road to Formula 1”
He added that “this is a key moment in the history of Scuderia Ferrari and its Academy”
“Thanks to the collaboration with the FIA in the Girls on Track: Rising Stars program, for the first time a female driver will join the Ferrari Driver Academy”
McLaren’s Technical Director James Key has divulged that the character trait that he finds most impressive in Daniel Ricciardo is the “massive amount of determination he has”
He further pointed out that this is “particularly when he’s driving; you can really feel and see that. He’s a very different character to when he’s out of the car and relaxed”

Are you expecting Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris to become an F1 “meme power-couple”?

This year will be the most important year for Lando in his career and I think he knows it. He need have a great seasom this year. Othewise he can be replecaded by someone else. They have new power unit from Mercedes so It can be George Russel or Checko . This year will be lot of pressure on Landos shoulders but Im really hoping that he will make it and stay in Mclaren for long time. Maybe he will shine like star and 2022 will be at Mercedes🤪 He is my fauvorite driver amd this year I will cross fingers harder than ever. Lets go Lando🧡🧡

I don’t know why I’ve always had a bit of a bad feeling whenever I think of Daniel and lando as a team 😞 the way they’ve acted for the past couple of times seems like lando is showing Dan that he can’t just walk in there and be the big man. I hope that they get along well and don’t become enemies! Two of my favorite drivers in one team I rlly hope it doesn’t go down hill!!!! 🤞

I hope they stop pushing political agendas on their corona-muzzles. We need a break from constant political noise trying to make us more divided and angry. I'm referring to the thumbnail of this video. Having little slogans like "equality" pushed in our faces as if we're in a re-education camp won't encourage people to be nicer or whatever message they try to push. It makes us sick and tired of being politically correct all the time.

I think it's Dan's problem he's picked up he's 50 million from Reno, last year or what ever it was . I don't see any real hungar. Same with max & valtorie. I've been watching a lot of F1 88 to 97 lately and one thing that stands out is just how much Schumacher left the track spun out during practice. No doubt finding the absolute limit before the race. Like how do you know where the limit is ?until you go over the limit. To go over the limit you need to lose control. But come race day more often then not Schumacher was on song. He was hungry. It's a war not a game . I'm Australian and I like Daniel but I want to see the animal come out . I understand McLaren isn't going to beat Mercedes but get noticed push boundaries like Schumacher did and see what happens race day is all I'm saying. Same for max and valtorie .

Yes off track they'll become a real good pairing bouncing off each other similar to Lando and Carlos. But on track is where it gets juicy for me, Both Ricci and Lando are both on top of what they do and I reckon they'll bring the best out of each other. Couple them both alongside a decent aero/chassis Mclaren, and a Mercedes engine this year, I reckon a few surprise results are coming for Mclaren this year, and then 2022 Regulation changes, I just reckon Mclaren will be on it from day 1 challenging the top spots. Certainly look forward to this year but next year with the regulation change is what I'm looking forward to most

Daniel and Lando will want to beat each other. Friendships when competing really take some time. And racing against each other usually destroys friendships. Look at Nico and Lewis? I think this could really happen WITH Daniel and Lando.

Whether this is "Daniels" words or not quoted in this video regardless, Daniels off track "class clown" persona has been all he`s own doing. I for one saw it as unprofessional conduct for an F1 driver that somewhat took away from his abilities in the bloody car. At times he just came across as the "aussie larikan fool", at times just a bloody embarrassment. Whatever he created he created himself, to have to remind his fans and/or critics of the "professional Daniel" that he obviously put on hold lastyear is pretty poor of the fool, and maybe just another ploy to reassure Mclaren bosses their decision was right. Either way we`ll see.

I'm really glad he came out and said this. It's good to establish boundaries early. It started to feel like people thought he was just moving to McLaren to hang out with Lando and the driving would also be a thing he did.

It must awkward for Lando and Ricciardo because of the power couple expectations. Cause now their friendship has to be this exaggerated comedy show. Not saying it can't be, but that it now can't happen organically like it did with Carlos just makes things.... awkward. Just thinking in their heads all the time now, "be funny, be funny" 😒🙄

Off track Ricciardo can be nice but on track he can ruffle some feathers with his teammate. Ricciardo may be in a upper midfield team but he's the only driver to beat Max over the course of a season in the same car. Lando has the chance to make or break his carreer if he can beat a top driver. This is the moment we'll see if Lando's the next Hamilton or the next Magnussen.

But no one meant that they would not take their jobs seriously or that they would be ~ easygoing~ and fun all the time. People were just excited to see nice content on youtube that they can watch. Also as long as Lando and Daniel don't change as people, fans will be happy. We all know both Daniel and Lando are very strong drivers and when Carlando were a team even though they had fun, they always delivered. But now that daniel and zak said these, I'm afraid of things being awkward if they get so focused on only being serious. And as we all know, its the team spirit that helped mclaren boost to 3rd place. Thank you for coming to my ted talk lmao :))

I think they're both alpha personalities. Carlos is an alpha person but he was a pretty mellow guy most of the time. I feel like Lando and Danny are both that friend that will break your chair leg then laugh at you in front of everyone. They both seem like they'd be threatened by the other. Again, this is just the vibe I get. But I think they'll be polite to each other and make jokes but not really form the connection that Lando and Carlos had

Well the Riccardio comments dont make sense to me..... Given the definition of meme: 1. an element of a culture or system of behaviour passed from one individual to another by imitation or other non-genetic means. 2. an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by internet users, often with slight variations. Definitions from Oxford Languages ..... that meme (1) is what all teams are looking for. The driver is there to reinforce culture and systems of behaviour, encourage imitation and innovation at the highest levels. The issue for him must be the overuse of meme (2), that insidious spread of funny but irrelevant through a fan base. Sad that he thinks this is needed for McLaren Fans.
