Daniel Ricciardo starts 13th in final McLaren race at F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix



Daniel Ricciardo qualified in the top 10 for his final race with McLaren for Sunday’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Australian was competitive during qualifying on Saturday but was unable to put together a flawless lap during the final session.

He qualified 10th but will start 13th after a penalty he received for causing a lap 1 crash with Kevin Magnussen during last week’s Sao Paulo Grand Prix in Brazil.

Ricciardo ends his time with McLaren at the end of this season and is rumoured to be headed to Red Bull as a reserve driver in 2023, although a contract has reportedly not been signed yet.

He said he will aim to be positive in the early stages of Sunday’s race around the Yas Marina circuit.

“I will try to attack from the start, make up a few positions and put myself back in the fight with the top ten,” he said.

Ricciardo will be hoping for a better outing than last week.
