Daniel Ricciardo considered parking his AlphaTauri in the opening
stages of the United States Grand Prix, after picking up
substantial damage. It was his first race weekend back since
sitting out the last five races due to a hand injury, which he
picked up during practice of the Dutch GP weekend. Liam Lawson
filled in while he got treatment for a fractured metacarpal, with
Red Bull electing to see out his recommended recovery time to
minimise any potential risks that could stem from an earl comeback.
Ricciardo was seen finding it difficult to use his right hand to
get out of his car on Saturday after the Sprint, which suggests he
is still needing to take care after the fracture. Ricciardo: That
made our race pretty miserable, I won't lie. During the open stages
the Australian picked up debris which was lodged in his front wing,
the origins of which are unknown according to Ricciardo. “They
[team] mentioned Stroll, and we were close but don't think we
touched,” he told media, including RacingNews365 . “We must have
picked up some debris somewhere and that made our race pretty
miserable, I won't lie. “At best we are a top 10 car and when you
put damage into it, we are certainly out of the points.” After
several laps spent off the pace, Ricciardo contemplated whether he
should retire but continued when the team removed the lodged piece
during his first pit stop. He finished the race a lap down and last
on the road, which turned into P15 with the disqualification of
and Charles Leclerc. “I was saying ‘Guys I can't
really do anything' and kind of suggesting do we just box and call
it a day or try to fix it and learn something,” he explained. “We
got to a point where I said ‘Okay, we'll try to at least see if we
can we fix it' and they tried to fix it. “I don't know if it was
front wing or brake ducts, but they put the Soft on [during pit
stop] and it was a bit better.”
