Has Daniel Ricciardo dropped a hint on his career post F1?

It seems more and more these days, F1 drivers look for opportunities in different series when they retire from F1. We’ve seen Jenson Button and Mark Webber do endurance racing, and Felipe Massa move into Formula E, but nobody has done the Bathurst 1000…

Daniel Ricciardo is a typical Aussie and it may come as no surprise that he would be keen to take part.

In an interview with Motorsport.com, he said: "I was recently asked what I would like to do after Formula 1, something like the V8s, NASCAR or Le Mans. In the first years in F1 you think ‘yes, that would be great.’

“But the longer you do this, the less enthusiastic you become. At one point I thought, ‘once I stop, I will stop completely.’ I was probably kidding myself because it would be cool to race the Supercar at Bathurst. Never say never. I estimate the chance at 50 percent.”
