Steiner: Riccardo never spoke to me

Steiner: Riccardo never spoke to me

On Thursday in Abu Dhabi, Haas announced their 2023 squad with Kevin Magnussen teammate Nico Hulkenberg. Team leader Günther Steiner said he was willing to consider Daniel Ricciardo, but the Australian racer showed no interest in negotiations.

Günter Steiner: “Before the Oscar Piastri story unfolded at McLaren, I contacted Ricciardo’s managers to find out what his plans were for next year, but this problem remained. I don’t know why we didn’t move on – ask him.

Daniel never spoke to me, and after bumping into Kevin last weekend, he shouldn’t even try to call me because I’m not answering!

It is clear that he is not doing everything right this year or he would have stayed with McLaren. When we considered all options, we took into account that Daniel is not at the peak of his career. I don’t know the reason for the lack of results, because he was good and won races for Red Bull, and he didn’t manage to do that this year.

You always take a risk when you invite a rider in this form. Maybe we are also at risk with Niko – I don’t know.”
