Watching his colleagues from other teams, Ricciardo realized that he had the potential to do the same things. 2024 could be great for him.

“I hope to be a better racing driver. That's what I'm working on. 

“Do I still want to be world champion? Yes. Has it been a dream of mine since I was a kid? Yes. 

But maybe it's just because I've seen Max, or whoever else, and they're still waking up the same person.

I think you just take a little bit of pressure off it. 

It's not going to change me as a human. Therefore, it's not going to change my life moving forward. "- he told the Beyond The Grid podcast, as quoted by crash.net!
