Video: McLaren gives sneak peak of Ricciardo in his new office

NEWS STORY
04/02/2021

Ahead of the new season, McLaren continues to build anticipation as the Woking outfit reveals Daniel Ricciardo sitting in the cockpit of the team's 2021 contender.

In all honesty, as far as the head shots go, if it wasn't for the papaya livery - and matching face mask - the Australian could have been sitting in any old car, though the Woking team insists he was having his seat fitting for the MCL35M.

Other than trying out the cockpit of his new ride, Ricciardo was shown walking the MTC's famous boulevard where, like many before him, he drooled over some of the team's various winners from its long, rich history.

The 7-time race winner appeared particularly interested in the Can-Am and Indy car on show.

While a video showed the popular Australian laughing and joking with some of his new colleagues, including team boss Andreas Seidl, Ricciardo has stressed that his move to Woking is for business and that taking the team forward is his aim.

"I want to reiterate to everyone watching, and every fan of McLaren in particular, it's not going to be a comedy show," the Australian told Sky Sports recently. "I'm going there for business, I'm going there to improve the car.

"My personality won't change," he assured fans, "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."

""and matching face mask". It's interesting they're still going with that color for the face masks. They clearly haven't gotten the memo from my wife - she says it looks like they're wearing thong Speedos on their faces.. :-D"

"Exactly so. Ricciardo has great depth and he brings to the team many commendable attitudes. The glowing reports from his old team Renault are testament to that observation. I am seriously looking forward to see how his latest adventure works out for both him and his new team. I wish them every success. Coming back from the depths of despair suffered during the Honda days is no mean feat and Zak Brown has done a superb job and bringing Andreas Seidl into the team was a great tactical move. Seidl is a winner....as his Porsche days will attest."
