McLaren willing to triple Ricciardo's salary in monster F1 offer

McLaren willing to triple Ricciardo's salary in monster F1 offer

Though linked with both Mercedes and Ferrari, the Australian claims not to have spoken to either team, while overnight the German media claimed that McLaren is seeking to secure the popular Australian's services.

"I did see it about an hour ago now". I'm not going to say it doesn't interest me at all.

After Fernando Alonso's victory in Le Mans last weekend, the Spaniard could be tempted to move to America with McLaren's reported IndyCar programme and aim to complete the Triple Crown of motorsport by winning the Indianapolis 500. Probably more because what Lewis was able to do with Mercedes.

"As far as comments on it, I haven't been presented anything which says that".

"It's just Red Bull feel there is more potential with Honda".

"Above all, some people in Mercedes would absolutely want Ricciardo to join them in the team, but he doesn't want to sign until Hamilton has signed", Marko said.

"I was aware it was a possibility".

"If I'm on the phone for two weeks of the August break trying to figure out my future that probably won't be that good".

"Renault has come a pretty long way this year". We'll have to wait and see.

"They keep improving, putting people in the right places so yeah".

World Cup Cristiano Ronaldo victor against Morocco
The first round of World Cup 2018 group games came to a close with Senegal's hard-fought 2-1 win over Poland . He is constantly evolving, contradictorily to the other players.

That leaves Ricciardo, who could end up anywhere - and it seems McLaren have got the memo.

Unsurprisingly, Ricciardo's aim is to have a package that will enable him to fight for the world title, from the outset next year.

He added: "That's the first thing in my mind".

"That is still the case today and we would like to thank the Renault team, and particularly the guys in our garage at every race, for their unstinting commitment and we look forward to ending our partnership on a high come the end of this season".

"But just to make a change for the sake of making a change, that won't be enough for me". "I need to find some substance behind it to jump ship".

Ricciardo, as a seven-time grands prix victor regarded as one of the best drivers on the grid, fits the bill.

"Now that the team has got the engine deal sorted, ideally they'd want something sooner rather than later". For me, it would be nice - even if it's a while away - to go on the summer break knowing what I'm doing so I can enjoy the summer break.

They expected to be competing close to the front in 2018 after swapping their Honda engines for Renaults, but they have qualified in the top 10 at only two races and Alonso's best result is fifth. For me to switch off as well.

"So, from a personal point of view, by the summer would definitely be nice".
