The McLaren driver asked Norris for a quote from the show that turned out to be Wolff’s. Ricciardo asked Norris,” Do I look dynamic, athletic, and intelligent?”

Both Wolff and Daniel were in the options, but Norris chose the wrong one and claimed it was Daniel. To which the Aussie replied, “I think he is trying to sound like me there.” Ricciardo repeated the question by impersonating the Mercedes team boss.

This left Lando in pieces and he said, “Oh! Now I see it. That’s a you thing.”

I do think Max is capable of it: Daniel Ricciardo

As reported by Planetf1, the Mclaren driver gave his opinion on who will win the title between Verstappen and Hamilton. He mentioned Verstappen has a good chance, as he has a stable head on his shoulders.

“Although Lewis has the experience of winning World titles, I don’t really see that as an advantage now. They are both capable, Lewis has proven it, but Max is capable and he has a pretty stable head on his shoulders now,” said Ricciardo.

“He has proven that with some of the drives he has done this year, so I am kind of at the point where I am just looking forward to see how it unfolds. Obviously, I am not part of that battle, but from a fan point of view, you just want it to go to the end.
