The Australian driver missed the past five races after suffering a break to the metacarpal on his left hand during the practice in the Dutch Grand Prix on August 25. He was ruled out of the race in Holland and also the following ones, in Italy, Singapore, Japan and Qatar. Ricciardo was replaced by Liam Lawson, AlphaTauri reserve pilot.

But Daniel is set to comeback, and already took part in a Red Bull demonstration run in Nashville last weekend. He will be officially back for practice at Circuit of the Americas on Friday (20). Talking about the injury, he said it had been “frustrating” but “it’s good to be back”. “It was definitely frustrating watching the past few races, especially as I’d gotten myself to a place where I was so ready to go again and race, and then I did two events and had to hit “pause” again, but actually, the time without racing went quite quickly”.

Daniel was dismissed by McLaren at the end of last season, and this year was handed a second chance by Red Bull’s junior team, AlphaTauri, following the departure of Nick DeVries. Despite the hand injury, the team announced in September that Ricciardo would remain their driver for next year. His teammate Yuki Tsunoda has also been confirmed for the 2024 season.
