“Have some shame” – Twitter reacts as McLaren announces sale of Daniel Ricciardo’s new merchandise

Daniel Ricciardo is set to part ways with McLaren at the end of the current F1 season

Daniel Ricciardo has been ousted by McLaren after the British F1 team terminated his contract. Ricciardo, an eight-time grand prix winner, had a deal until the end of 2023 but McLaren’s hierarchy has moved to end the 33-year-old’s disappointing two-season stint with the team by paying off the final season of his deal. However, that hasn’t stopped the F1 team from selling the Australian’s official merchandise for the new season.

The McLaren management felt Ricciardo, a former Red Bull and Renault driver, has not met his expectations since his arrival at the team last year. Although Ricciardo ended McLaren’s nine-year winning drought with victory at the Italian Grand Prix last season, he has consistently been outperformed by Britain’s Lando Norris. Norris has qualified ahead of Ricciardo at 11 of the 13 races in 2022, and has scored 57 points more than his teammate.

Oscar Piastri will replace Ricciardo at McLaren in the 2023 season.
