Daniel Ricciardo happy to be back racing ahead of United States Grand Prix

Yee-haw! Daniel Ricciardo fans hold your horses; he is back. The Aussie is set to make his return to the grid in Texas saying he is “happy to be back.”

Ricciardo sustained an injury to his hand at the Dutch Grand Prix in a practice session in August and has been unable to drive since. Doubts were cast on when exactly he would return, with Alpha Tauri reserve driver Liam Lawson keeping his seat warm in the meantime.

An occasion the honey badger has made one of his own, fans and drivers alike will be delighted at the news. Speaking in a team preview he said: “It’s good to be back. 

“My hand is much better, the simulator was a useful way of assessing it.”

It is common knowledge how much Ricciardo loves to race in Texas. After previously making a mark of arriving to the US GP on horseback. 

Meanwhile the grid will welcome back the return of his big smile and infectious personality with open arms, and maybe even arriving on another horse. 

He has since posted a message on this Instagram account also confirming his return.

He said: “Little update: simulator’s been going well.

“Hand is feeling good to drive. Austin – everyone knows I love Austin. 

“I wouldn’t miss that one for the world. 

“See y’all in Austin.”

This will be only Ricciardo’s third race since his return to the grid at the Hungarian Grand Prix in July.

The eight-time winner had started the season as Red Bull’s reserve driver but has since taken over from Nick de Vries and secured a spot on the grid next season racing for the Red Bull sister team.
