The 2021 season was one of the toughest of Daniel Riccardo’s career, and despite an unexpected victory in the September Italian Grand Prix, the Australian McLaren driver can hardly be satisfied with his results.
With all his experience, it took him more than half a season to figure out the peculiarities of the MCL35M car, and according to the results of the championship, Riccardo took only 8th place, losing 45 points to a young team-mate, Lando Norris, who entered the top six.
However, according to Michael Italiano, a longtime friend of Daniel, and at the same time his physical training coach, not the most successful season only provoked his ward, and he is even more eager for new victories.
“His goal is clearly to be a champion, as it has been from day one,” the Daily and Sunday Express quoted Italiano as saying. – I believe that he is quite capable of winning the championship, and he himself also has no doubts that he is the best. Driving a good car, he will achieve it. “
But the tight schedule for the next season will require maximum concentration of forces, so the coach’s task is to provide the rider with quality training.
“There has been a lot of talk in the McLaren garage about 2022. In my opinion, we will have three series of three races in a row and only a few races, separated by two-week breaks, continued Italiano. – The rest of the stages are doubled. We will start work in February, and the season will end in the second half of November. This is earlier than 2021, but there is one more milestone in the calendar. The season schedule has become tighter.
However, this is great, because Formula 1 is developing very quickly, but at the same time it becomes more difficult for the riders physically and psychologically. “
