If Daniel Ricciardo is copiously dominated by Lando Norris since he joined McLaren F1, that does not prevent the two drivers from being good friends according to the Australian.
The latter also has a hard time saying with which drivers on the grid he gets on best, he who obviously maintains good relations with the whole field.
« It’s hard to say because I have real friends on the grid, » said Ricciardo.
« Even though I like to tease him, Pierre Gasly is a good boy, I really like Pierre. »
« Obviously Lando and I have gotten to know each other better now that we’re in our second year together, and we laugh a lot. »
« Max (Verstappen) too. Outside of competition, I think we have developed a great respect for each other. »
« There are actually quite a few riders I would be happy to go out to dinner with and have a good time with. But I think a lot of them stay on their toes because they don’t want the competition to upset them. »
« I think once we’re done with racing and let our guard down, you might see us spending more time together. »
