Speaking to the Beyond The Grid podcast, Daniel Ricciardo confirmed his ambitions to return to the Red Bull team and do great things. Ricciardo will race next season for Alpha Tauri, Red Bull's sister team. Ricciardo will have the opportunity to show his qualities in the best way.

Although he does not plan to finish his career anytime soon, he wants to finish his career at Red Bull. He is aware that Red Bull is the strongest team at the moment, which has a great chance to win the championship again next season.

“I'm not even going to put a day, or date on it, or year, whatever,” he said, as quoted by crash.net! “I think coming back into it and jumping back in with the Red Bull family, doing the test in July, all these things, working with Simon again, that's really the dream.

Honestly, to end my career as a Red Bull driver would be perfect. Not that I'm looking at the end, but if I go back there, then I'll certainly make sure I finish there”.

Daniel Ricciardo on Red Bull's return

Ricciardo recalled his return to Red Bull at the end of 2022.

In those moments, he felt enormous nervousness, but also excitement. Things did not go well for him, and Daniel was unhappy. All the experiences he had became only a motivation for him to be the best version of himself. Ricciardo has shown many times in his career that he can do great things.

Sometimes confidence was the main problem, but hopefully, Daniel will work on it.
“I only saw how low I was after the fact,” he said. “Walking into the factory that day, I was definitely a bit nervous, but there was a part of me which was definitely excited as well, because I realised maybe this is another chance, you know? And who better to do it with than the team that really got me here in the first place? The sim that day didn't go particularly well. Then obviously I went home for Christmas and had all this time off. I wasn’t completely myself”.
