Get excited: Daniel Ricciardo’s stunning return to F1 is with AlphaTauri, as Nyck De Vries leaves!
The news that Australian Daniel Ricciardo would be returning to Formula 1 with AlphaTauri for the 2023 season was a welcome one to Formula 1 fans. Ricciardo was eager to find a car capable of helping him achieve podium finishes, if not even wins. After leaving Red Bull Racing for Renault (now Alpine), he has been looking for a more competitive vehicle. Ricciardo can once again show off his driving abilities and show that he’s still one of F1’s best drivers. AlphaTauri’s partnership with Ricciardo could be a game changer for the team. They want to compete against the top F1 drivers.
Nyck De Vries is leaving the team due to this personnel change. De Vries was a young driver with a lot of talent who joined AlphaTauri during the 2022 racing season. With Ricciardo joining the team, however, management decided to change their lineup. De Vries is disappointed, as he had hoped that he could continue to develop and make significant improvements in the next season. The talented Dutch driver, however, will have many other chances to show off his talents in the future and leave his mark on Formula 1.

His times during the tyre test were extremely competitive. It was a very impressive drive, and we are excited to see what the rest of the season brings for Daniel on loan at Scuderia AlphaTauri.”
De Vries leaving AlphaTauri was a question of when and not if for quite some time. This was due to his enormous struggles, as well as the public criticisms from Red Bull motorsport boss Helmut Marko.
Marko, last month, said Horner, looking back, had been right to ask whether De Vries, the person Horner brought into the F1 programme, was the right choice.
