Daniel Ricciardo 'demands £12m to quit McLaren' as negotiations start over ending contract


Share post:

Ricciardo is contracted at the team until the end of 2023 and will need to be paid off to depart early. It is understood he is the only party to have the right to cancel his current deal, and it is expected Ricciardo’s asking fee may be reduced as McLaren haggles over a price.

There is also a possibility that should the 33-year-old secure a drive elsewhere next season, any salary component he receives would see the same value refunded to McLaren. Formula One expert Peter Windsor believes that the current situation leaves Brown in an uncomfortable position, with the American regretting the deal he initially gave the former Red Bull and Renault man. 

“What will take some time now is the deal that Zak Brown will make with Daniel,” he continued. “Daniel will be riding for him for the rest of this year, so it will not be a comfortable situation for Zak.
