Daniel Ricciardo says he is stoked to be back racing with the Red Bull family after Scuderia AlphaTauri announced on Tuesday that the Australian will return to the team from the Hungarian Grand Prix onwards on loan from Oracle Red Bull Racing.
The Australian replaces Nyck De Vries and speaking following the news he said:
“I’m stoked to be back on track with the Red Bull family!”
Scuderia Alpha Tauri Team Principal Franz Tost said:
“I’m very pleased to welcome Daniel back into the team. “There’s no doubt about his driving skill, and he already knows many of us, so his integration will be easy and straight-forward. The team will also profit a lot from his experience, as he is an eight-time Formula 1 Grand Prix winner. I would like to thank Nyck for his valuable contribution during his time with Scuderia AlphaTauri, and I wish him all the best for the future.”
