Daniel Ricciardo sat in a McLaren F1 car for the first time in his new racing suit and the Australian also walked through a McLaren Technology Center where their various famous racing cars are on display.

After two years in Renault, Ricciardo moved to McLaren, which last season achieved their best placement at the end of the year since 2012, when they were also third, and they were strengthened by the best power unit in Formula 1 supplied by Mercedes.

The Australian in a McLaren racing suit sat in the cockpit of their new 2021 F1 car MCL35M and had a tour at the famous McLaren Technology Center where a number of famous F1 cars and road cars are on display.

Ricciardo is one of the drivers who is always ready to joke, just like another McLaren driver Lando Norris, but he told McLaren fans that he came to Woking to work and be maximally dedicated to it.

“I want to reiterate to everyone watching and especially to all McLaren fans that this is not going to be a comedy show,” said Ricciardo.

“I came here to work, I came here to improve the car.”

“My personality isn’t going to change, I enjoy what I’m doing, but I’m certainly not going to McLaren to be part of a ‘meme’ couple or whatever it’s called today.”

Ricciardo will get the first opportunity behind the wheel of the new McLaren MCL35M, the first Mercedes powered McLaren car since 2014, in the pre-season tests in Bahrain on March 12-14 unless McLaren decides to use filming day in which they can drive 100 kilometers.

McLaren will launch their 2021 F1 car MCL35M on February 15.
