Way to early, given he gave Max a run for his money and literally ran out Vettel.

I wish him nothing but success, but if I never see him drink out of that #$#%#!* shoe again I'll be a happy man.

Didn't like how things were turning out with Max outdriving him so went slightly overboard with the prosecco and spirit mix then broke his surfboard in half.

I would too but he's got to be looking over at the Red Bull garage and know he'd be scoring regular podiums (and possibly wins) had he stayed put.

He can look but he can't touch RB now as much as he'd like to turn back the clock.
He chose to go to Renault for big money offer and lately to McLaren so keeping with the devil he knows is his best option now.

Agreed. All the trouble with the Renault engines only to go to the Renault team never made sense. Then onto MacLaren as RB is ascending back to the top. He's gotta be kicking himself.

Ricciardo made serious bank. Sure every F1 driver wants to win a championship. But money is the next best thing so I think he’s far from wasting any chances.
