McLaren push for Daniel Ricciardo’s services with $20 Million per year offer

"It probably depends as well on what Fernando [Alonso] does, if he stays or if he goes". And then there's the rest of the grid, many of which would nearly certainly be interested in gaining the signature of one driver other than Vettel or Hamilton to have secured victory (twice) in 2018.

Regardless of which team he'll be driving for in 2019, the seven-time Grand Prix victor wants to settle his future before Formula 1's summer break at the end of July.

Ricciardo has been linked with moves from several teams such as Scuderia Ferrari, Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport and most recently, McLaren.

"After that, let's see what the future brings, whether it be the Indy 500, triple crown or whatever seems attractive".

Express Sport approached McLaren for a response to the reports but were told: "We never comment on driver matters".

When asked by Formula1.com if it was appealing for him to join a team like McLaren or Renault that isn't winning right now but where he could help get them into a position to do so, Ricciardo said: "There is part of it which is".

Would Ricciardo find McLaren attractive?

Will Alonso potentially walking away from F1 open a door for Ricciardo? The race is expected to be an unpredictable affair, with France having been off the F1 calendar for 10 years.

If Ricciardo stays at Red Bull he will be driving a Honda-powered vehicle next year after the team announced a new two-year contract with the Japanese manufacturer.

"Renault has come a pretty long way this year". They are both on the up.

"In an extremely demanding and competitive environment we are proud of the extraordinary results achieved with Red Bull Racing over the past 12 seasons, in particular, the four Drivers' and Constructors' World Championships and 57 wins we have taken together". "Maybe it is. I also have it pretty good where I am".

"But if we were to look at others, Daniel is definitely among them." .

"There is a lot to add up". He added: "There's certainly a lot of pros with [the Honda power], so just trying to add it all up in my mind".

Red Bull power broker Helmut Marko knows the 28-year-old, who is off-contract at the end of the season, is in high demand. "Our Daniel Ricciardo is the king of the market", Marko said. "McLaren offers him more every week". If I do move on from Red Bull, I never want to criticize them.

However, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas seem likely to stay with Mercedes, while Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari days could be extended to ensure the Finn plays second fiddle to Vettel's title charges.

As reported by German media outlet Sports Build, McLaren have offered a $20 million contract to the Aussie, which will be more than triple his current salary with Red Bull.

"It's a bit unusual".

Ferrari are said by sources close to the team to be weighing up continuing with the veteran Finn or promoting their protege Charles Leclerc, who is impressing in his debut season with Sauber.
