Daniel Ricciardo to leave McLaren as F1 team confirm Lando Norris will get new team-mate

“It’s no secret that we hoped we could achieve more together but seeing him stand on the top step of the podium as a McLaren driver was a highlight. We wish him well for the future and let’s go enjoy the rest of the season together.”

It is now expected that Piastri, the 21-year-old currently contracted to Alpine as their reserve driver, will replace Ricciardo for next season, although American prodigy Colton Herta has been linked with the seat.

McLaren have said their 2023 lineup will be confirmed “in due course”, but it is likely to be Piastri who links up with the Papaya for next season after denying he had signed a contract with Alpine in July.
