Magazine: Interview with F1's Daniel Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo is one of Formula 1's most popular drivers and is the cover star of this week's Autosport magazine, out today (26 November)

Magazine: Interview with F1's Daniel Ricciardo

In his interview with Alex Kalinauckas, the Australian talks about his recent return to the podium, what he has learned at Renault, and overcoming the awkwardness of driving for the French team after announcing his departure to McLaren for 2021.

Ricciardo took seven grand prix wins during his five seasons at Red Bull and the team recently gave 2019 Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award winner Johnathan Hoggard his first taste of F1 machinery. We joined him at Silverstone's Grand Prix circuit and show how he fulfilled a dream in this week's issue.

World Rally legend Sebastien Loeb has joined forces with old rival Prodrive to take on the Dakar Rally. The nine-time WRC champion talks to us about the new project and testing the unusual machine, the appeal of the marathon event, and what still motivates him at the age of 46.

Loeb won Autosport's International Rally Driver of the Year Award seven times durting his distinguished WRC career and the 2020 edition of the Autosport Awards has now kicked off. Autosport subscribers and magazine readers can have your say on the best of motorsport this year by selecting from the nominees across 10 categories, all presented at awardsvoting.autosport.com and in the issue.

We also review the IndyCar season, picking out the top 10 drivers in a campaign that Scott Dixon took his sixth title, take a look at the new GT2 category with the help of the versatile Eric van de Poele, and talk to the club racers who built a 2020 championship winner in a shed, using scrap...

Most series are now winding down, but we report from the MotoGP finale at the Algarve Circuit, cover the drama of a very different Macau GP meeting, and bring you the latest news in the World Endurance Championship, British Touring Cars and Extreme E.
