McLaren star Daniel Ricciardo has revealed that he is hoping to beat Lewis Hamilton in the race of the Driver’s Championship standings by the end of the season. Ricciardo scored his first points with the historic British outfit at Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix.
“Obviously I’ve done a bit of moving around the last few years,” Ricciardo told the F1 YouTube channel. “It’s not something I want to continue doing or plan on doing. It’s stressful and actually hard work so I feel like this team has already laid out a very nice foundation.
“And if I can build on what I can already see that they’ve got and personally achieve all of my goals here, then I think we can fight for a world title, hopefully already as soon as next year.”
Ricciardo reached the peak of his career during his time with Red Bull. However, he struggled to achieve anything more than moderate success.
