Daniel Ricciardo F1 contract already tied to Ferrari: Report

Published

on

EVEN before his stunning Chinese GP win made him arguably the hottest property in the 2019 driver market, speculation in the Shanghai paddock had already suggested Daniel Ricciardo had signed some form of option with Ferrari.

Sky Sports F1 analyst Mark Hughes, writing in Motorsport magazine, believes the reports are correct and has locked both Ricciardo and Ferrari into an exclusive negotiating period until the end of June.

“There are many different types of contractual options, but this one is said to be on both sides up to a defined date (believed to be June 30). Up until that time, neither party can officially negotiate with another,” reports Hughes.

“Because the driver is effectively locking himself out of the market for that time, discussions for his post-2018 services are contractually ‘owned’ by the team (in this case Ferrari).

“As such, he will be paid a fee. Between now and then he and Ferrari can negotiate about a future contract. This is all conventional F1 practice.

Fabio Quartararo produced a thrilling ride to claim a resounding victory at the Catalunya MotoGP on Sunday, his third of the season which sends him top of the world championship standings.

Joan Mir, on a Suzuki, came through to take second and is now eight points behind Quartararo in the standings, while Alex Rins completed the podium.

The race began in dramatic fashion with Andrea Dovizioso, who led the title race by a single point from Frenchman Quartararo and Maverick Vinales, was taken out in the opening lap after tangling with Johann Zarcho.

Quartararo, on a Yamaha, won the opening two races of the season but has struggled since then, failing to reach the podium in the last five races.

Daniel Ricciardo is a man of his word.

On Sunday at the Russian Grand Prix, he told his team he’d make up for a basic error that threatened his top-five finish.

Not only did he then put his foot down to hold onto fifth, but he did so with ease, more than ten seconds clear of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in sixth.

The result carried on a strong run of performances for the Australian who had finished fourth, sixth and fourth in the three previous races.
