Daniel Ricciardo will return to Formula 1 team Red Bull next season. The racing stable announced this on its website. The 33-year-old Australian will be reserve driver there. Red Bull CEO Helmut Marko already announced the arrival of Ricciardo in Abu Dhabi last week, but there was no sign of a contract at the time.

After this season, Ricciardo will have to give up his seat as a regular driver at McLaren to his compatriot Oscar Piastri, the 2021 F2 champion. At Red Bull he will also be used for commercial activities.

“I’m very excited to come back home,” Ricciardo said in a first reaction. “For me personally, the opportunity to contribute and be surrounded by the best team in the world is extremely attractive. It also gives me the chance to recharge my batteries and reorient myself.”

Ricciardo made his debut in Formula 1 in 2011. He previously drove for Red Bull from 2014 to 2018 and won seven Grand Prix in that period. Twice he was third in the final standings of the World Cup. He previously drove for HRT (2011) and Toro Rosso (2012-2013). After his period at Red Bull, he played for Renault (2019-2020) and McLaren (2021-2022). Last year he recorded his last of eight victories in F1, at the Italian Grand Prix.

Dutch world champion Max Verstappen and Mexican Sergio Perez will remain Red Bull’s two regular drivers next season.
