‘Beyond excited’: Ricciardo ready to put disappointment behind him ahead of Australian Grand Prix

Daniel Ricciardo’s three-year wait to race in Australia is over as Formula 1 returns to Melbourne.

Albert Park will host the first Australian Grand Prix since 2019, with the race cancelled in 2020 and 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ricciardo returns home in his second season at McLaren, coming off a difficult start to the year.

The Australian has failed to score a point in the opening two races, with car performance and reliability the issues.

But the ever-upbeat Ricciardo said he was prepared for one of his favourite weekends of the year.

“I am beyond excited to get back out on track in Melbourne,” he said.

“Nothing beats a home crowd, and the Australian fans are some of the best in the world.”

After finishing 14th in the season-opener in Bahrain, Ricciardo was set to score his first points during the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
