Daniel Ricciardo replaces Nick de Vries at Alpha Tauri

Australian Daniel Ricardo became the new main driver of the Formula 1 team”Alpha Tauri “, according to the team’s press office.

Earlier, De Telegraaf published reports that Nick de Vries, who started the season as one of the two combat pilots, was fired from the team.

“I am very happy to welcome Daniel back to the team. There is no doubting his driving skills. The team will also benefit greatly from his experience as he is an eight-time Formula 1 Grand Prix winner.

I would like to thank Nick for his valuable contribution while working with the team and wish him all the best for the future,” said Alfa Tauri CEO Franz Tost.

The British Grand Prix was de Vries’ last with the team. The 2019 Formula 2 and 2021 Formula E champion has not scored a point this Formula 1 season. Eight times out of ten, de Vries has finished under teammate Yuki Tsunoda.

Ricciardo will drive the Alpha Tauri next weekend at the Hungarian Grand Prix. The Australian driver will return to F1 after leaving McLaren at the end of 2022.
