The broken bone in Daniel Ricciardo’s hand was worse than first
feared, hence a longer than expected lay-off for the AlphaTauri
driver. During Free Practice 2 at Zandvoort, Ricciardo crashed
while avoiding Oscar Piastri’s spun McLaren at Turn 3, and broke
the metacarpal in his left-hand. It required surgery and promoted
Liam Lawson to a temporary race seat as Ricciardo aimed to return
to full fitness with hoped for returns in Singapore and then Qatar
dashed. While the surgery was a complete success, the Australian
revealed how he suffered a set-back. Ricciardo’s injury set-back “I
would say [the recovery] was tougher than I thought, but I’m
probably a bit of a wuss as well,” Ricciardo explained to media
including RacingNews365. “When the accident happened, and we were
aware of what bone broke, they seemed fairly okay with it in terms
of “Oh, it’s a relatively easy one to kind of fix.’ “But when we
got the surgery done in Spain, further checks were done and the
break was a lot worse than it first seemed. “That is what took a
lot longer for my recovery and probably made it a bit more painful
for me.”
