    I was prepared for an in-season change but didn't expect that to happen before the summer break.
    Nevertheless, Ricciardo for the remaining season is an unsurprising choice.
    However, hopefully, he'd only be a stop-gap choice with Lawson becoming a full-time driver for next season, as otherwise, not much point in having a driver program anymore.

    Not really any surprises there. Nyck had not been putting runs on the board, so time to change to a more experienced Ricciardo. I hope, for Daniel's sake, that he can regain his enthusiasm on the track and at least get some points for the team. The car hasn't been competitive up to now, although with his experience hopefully Daniel can improve the car.

      LMAO at the time. Referring more to the posters who said he was only an 'ambassador' for RB and would never race again. We'll have to measure his smile after a couple of races battling the Haas boys at the back. RealLemon squeezy juice might be a better choice for sponsor. We'll see.
