Mclaren top responds to the arrival of honey badger Daniel Ricciardo

After a short period it's finally official! After two seasons, Daniel Ricciardo exchanges the French Renault for the British McLaren, which the British team just announced. McLaren CEO Zak Brown and team boss Andreas Seidl are in any case very happy with the arrival of the Australian.

“Signing Daniel is another step forward in our long-term plan and will bring an exciting new dimension to the team, alongside Lando. This is good news for our team, partners and of course our fans'', Mclaren CEO Zak Brown told in a press statement.

“I also want to pay tribute to Carlos for the excellent job he has been doing for McLaren in helping our performance recovery plan. He is a real team player and we wish him well for his future beyond McLaren.”, Brown continued while confirming that Carlos Sainz will leave the team.

Team boss Andreas Seidl added: “Daniel is a proven race-winner and his experience, commitment and energy will be a valuable addition to McLaren and our mission to return to the front of the field. With Daniel and Lando as teammates, I believe we have two racers who will continue to excite our fans and help the team grow.''

De teambaas liet zich uiteraard ook nog even uit over Carlos: “Carlos is a true professional, a pleasure to work with and we will continue to enjoy going racing with him this year. We all wish him good luck for the next stage in his career when he leaves McLaren'', Seidl concluded.
