DON’T BE SURPRISED if this weekend at Silverstone is the one Daniel Ricciardo re-signs with Red Bull. The F1 summer break is looming large and I doubt Dan will want to carry that huge burden any longer than he needs to.
And if you wonder why Max Verstappen‘s recent contract is worth a reputed US$25 million, take a look at Kym Illman‘s pic of the Flying Dutchman screaming by that Orange stand last weekend at Spielberg, Austria. I seriously wonder whether there ever has been as much consistent support for a F1 driver.
Whenever and whichever way Dan decides, his future is indelibly linked to a battle with Max – teammate or not – for as long as he continues to stay in the game!
