F1 2020: Daniel Ricciardo recalls ‘pure rage’ after blunder

Published

on

Since his Formula 1 debut in 2011, Daniel Ricciardo has endured the ups and downs of professional sport.

From the triumph of his maiden victory at the Canadian Grand Prix to his disastrous debut for Renault at the 2019 Australian Grand Prix, the 30-year-old’s career has been an emotional rollercoaster.

Ricciardo has evidently been feeling nostalgic while in lockdown, and in the latest edition of “Dan’s Diary”, he reminisced about the races which have left a lasting emotional impact.

There are no prizes for guessing which F1 moment evoked the most anger for Ricciardo. After claiming pole position at the 2016 Monaco Grand Prix, he slipped to second spot because of a shambolic a pit stop error, opening the door for Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton to win the event.

“Even four years on, I remember this day in so much detail. It’s like a video in my mind,” Ricciardo wrote.

The sporting community has rallied in tribute to Floyd, with stars from Michael Jordan to upcoming football sensation Jadon Sancho all helping spread the message of defiance against police brutality and in support of the black lives matter movement.
