Can Daniel Ricciardo break his non-podium record at his home race (Australia Grand Prix)?

The Australian racing driver Daniel Ricciardo made his Formula 1 debut in 2011 at the British Grand Prix. Since then, he has been part of every F1 season to the present. He has 32 podium finishes, including eight wins in his F1 career, representing various teams. But his performance in his home race, i.e., the Australian Grand Prix, hasn’t been that impressive.

His best finish at the Australian Grand Prix is 4th, which came in 2016 and 2018 with the Red Bull F1 team. On the other hand, he has had three DNFs and one disqualification. This concludes that Ricciardo is yet to have a podium finish at home.

As mentioned, the record of Daniel Ricciardo at his home hasn’t been that impressive. Moreover, he is podium-less, and his chances of having a podium in 2024 seem tough.

Ricciardo and the Visa Cash Racing Bulls team are pointless this season. They don’t have a strong car that can guarantee them a win or a podium finish. But you never know because last year’s Australian Grand Prix had eight DNFs.

Can Ricciardo finally have his first home Grand Prix podium? Let us know your views in the comment section.
