  1. Danny Ric just pulled up to the RBR barista and ordered his usual.

    I think ricciardo may have got his red bull seat back. Outqualified perez with an alpha tauri. What’s the risk in dropping Perez?

    1. He’s a tenth off verstappen too. Remember when RIC denied youngest pole winner from Verstappen at this very track by taking pole? I’m sure Max may not be thrilled to see
      him up there either.

        He’s definitely not going to care its Verstappen behind him or alongside him.

  3. Let’s see what the “ric has lost it” guys will say after this

    1. Tbf, Yuki didn’t set any meaningful lap times due to his power unit penalties

        Second time this year that an alpha tauri driver has impressed and both times it wasn’t Yuki. He’s had 60+ races to do anything of note.

        1. Ricciardo 0 points, Yuki 8 points. Nuff said. Cope harder

          1. Yuki 18 races, Ricciardo 3 races and a broken wrist

            Dumbest comparison ever

    2. How many points are awarded on Saturdays?

    3. 3 races and a broken hand, not wrist. He rarely had it in 2021 and 2022

      1. esp in Monza, where he won in ’21

        1. @madmax which if it hadn’t been for team orders telling Norris not to challenge Ricciardo, he wouldn’t have done

  4. Good job by Ricciardo. Happy for him and hope he does well in the race.
