Just another week for one team to dominate the track apart from Red Bull. Plus the usual drama of a race weekend. However, the 2023 Hungarian GP is special, and it’s because Daniel Ricciardo will be back on track after a six-month absence. The beloved Australian is back racing for AlphaTauri on the Hungaroring and will be part of a race weekend since the 2022 Abu Dhabi GP.

Ever since leaving Red Bull, Ricciardo did not feel at home. After spending four years struggling with different teams, when he rejoined Red Bull, Ricciardo even confessed his happiness with his homecoming. However, little did he know it was just the start. Ricciardo’s happiness is now multiplied 10 folds in a matter of 6 months.

The Australian took over racing duties from Nyck de Vries following the Dutchman’s abysmal form in the opening 10 races. For the 11th, Ricciardo will don the AlphaTauri suit. This gave the Australian an opportunity to tweet something he would’ve eagerly been waiting for. He tweeted, “Race week. Haven’t said that in a while. Cool.”
