"Scuderia AlphaTauri welcomes back Daniel Ricciardo
https://scuderia.alphatauri.com/en/s...iel-ricciardo/
11 July 2023 - Scuderia AlphaTauri announces that Daniel Ricciardo will be joining the team on loan from Oracle Red Bull Racing for the remainder of the Formula 1 season, starting from the upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix.
“I’m very pleased to welcome Daniel back into the team,” commented Franz Tost, Scuderia AlphaTauri Team Principal. “There’s no doubt about his driving skills, 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.”
Daniel Ricciardo said: “I’m stoked to be back on track with the Red Bull family!”

In this video posted yesterday they considered that De Vries' days in F1 were numbered but guessed that he would still be around for a couple of races:

Apparently it was Ricciardo's Pirelli tire test at Silverstone in 2023 machinery that cemented the change. He put up a time that would have put him on front row for Silverstone GP.

I see RIC's move to AT as a suicide mission !

Because the AT car (AT04) really s@cks and RIC s@cks too in a bad car ...
Can't wait to see him drive it , and I really hope the best for him .

On the other hand !

If RIC (still)! can show it , like in his glorious days of the past ...
Well ...Then his has a very good chance to get Checo's seat in 2024 .
But I fear the worse for him , and see his new chance more like a F1 Exit !

If Ricciardo scores any points he is already ahead of Nyck. Yuki somehow managed to score two points so far in that car.

Well , hopefully RIC can score some points that's why they took him back .

I mean , remember RIC's days at McLaren while Lando was doing well .
The Japanese Yuki ?
That's not a bad driver , it's his car who really s@cks .

I'm pretty sure , Yuki will finish in front of RIC .
Anyway the race is on at AT !

It won't be easy or RIC at AT...

Showing front row lap times in the RB19...it'll be interesting to see what row he'll time in the AT04.

Is that in the Red Bull? Anybody on the grid can do that in a Red Bull! Except for maybe, err... some guy called Perez?

What a shite place to work at. It's cutthroat to a whole new dimension. But then I dig, this is one of the most competitive places on the planet. Definitely no charity. But still. Blimey.

I was surprised to read: "While he was testing the RB19, it was confirmed that he will make a full-time comeback driving for AlphaTauri for the rest of this season."

Not sure where that came from since he did a 1:27.415, 0.7s behind Pole with a faster compound tire and a track that's in better condition.

Danny Ric is an animal that they know, so happy to use him.

Just don't understand why they are not using fresh blood.

These guys know what theyíve signed up for. Their job is purely performance based, particularly when these teams invest so much damn money each year to make this thing go round and round.

The mentally strongest survive. You donít produce, youíre out. Canít handle the pressure, then you should probably try something else. Reality sucks for some haha
