At Zandvoort, George Russell was spotted wearing a Daniel Ricciardo shirt. The Australian explains he sent some of his merchandise to George’s girlfriend.

In the paddock at the Dutch Grand Prix, George Russell could be seen sporting a shirt with Daniel Ricciardo’s Enchante logo.

Many have perceived this as a sing of support for the Australian, after McLaren announced he will not be driving for the team next year, possibly leaving him without a seat.

During his Dutch GP media duties, Ricciardo explained what led to George wearing his shirt.

“George is a good one,” the Australian said.

“He’s one of the good young ones! I’ll give you the story, it’s a feel good story, one for the grandkids! So he won’t mind me saying this.

“So he texted me one Friday night, and it was a picture of his girlfriend on the couch, looking up the RIC3 shop. And he was like, ‘Mate, what’s going on?’

“And I was like, ‘Tell me what she likes, I’ll send her a few things’. So we sent a few things. And I guess one of them actually fits George. So he decided to wear it today.

“So it’s good, George is a good lad. Yeah, I like the kid,” he concluded.

There have also been some rumours floating around, that Ricciardo could become Mercedes’ reserve driver in 2023, but there has been no official confirmation.
