Daniel Ricciardo has taken a step forward with McLaren over the last couple of F1 races, with a breakthrough during the Portuguese Grand Prix allowing him to unlock more from the car while he waits for updates from the team that should make him more comfortable. In this video Scott Mitchell explains how Ricciardo is trying to change his style to suit McLaren, with an insight into the main area he is being coached on by his engineer when he's out on track.

I believe test time, on track, in the car is very limited. Time in the simulator doesn’t precisely give you seat-of-the-pants feel required. I wonder whether they can setup Karts on scaled tracks, with similar characteristics/traits of the F1 car to help Daniel. Is Kart driving/practicing/testing allowed now? If I recall correctly, Michael Schumacher would go Karting during off-time and/or between events.

Aren't they 2:2 in quali? Hints that DR's outright pace isn't horrid... Race pace is not good though. Even with a good quali, DR struggles on laps 1 and 2... Seems as though he has to get used to how the Mclaren switches on the tyres more than anything....

If McLaren are serious about constructor points they should be thinking of cheaper and faster driver for 2022 and beyond before they waste their money.

Well done Daniel. It takes guts and humility to want to start over and learn new things. Well done.

Riccardo reminds me of what golfing greats Nick Price, Tiger Woods and Greg Norman did. Always a champion, they change teachers, completely break down their golf swings, and rebuild them in order to win more major championships. I applaud Daniel for doing the same. I always thought his move to Renault was a mistake. But none of us know the intimate workings of that relationship; only the obvious. Daniel wasn't winning with Renault. And he was smart enough to cut his losses and start over. Well done Daniel. But I suspect McLaren will be the last team to recruit him if it doesn't work out. Who wants to hire somebody that isn't winning and keeps jumping ship?

McLaren are a different team, now. They’re a very happy-go-lucky team at this stage whereas under the kosh of Ron Dennis, they were a bit more like Red Bull are now (sadly). The team know they’ve got an amazing driver line-up, a great engine and awesome team principle. They’ll get their shit together sooner rather than later.

It's also well known Daniel is a driver and not that good of a setup genius. At red bull Max quickly gave him the data he needed to get quick, now he doesn't have such a clear and known datapoint you see him struggle since he isn't very good in fixing a setup.

This video gives us such a good insight in how complicated it is to drive a F1 car. I've been very harsh on Vettel the last years, but when my favorite driver Danny Rick all of a sudden struggles like Vettel the I realize how Seb must've felt. Sorry Seb for all my ranting the recent years......

This is why I was so pissed at RB for what they did to him as Max came along.... A driver who's driven for you for a long time is so in tune with each year's car, that if they try to change teams, they are seriously hampered at the new team as the car is too different.
Rick Måned siden
Is that why Max immediately performed when he jumped into a RB seat mid-season? He didn’t need excuses. If an 18 year old can do that, then I expect similar results from proven race winners like Perez, or Daniel Ricciardo.

This is a masterclass in why F1 requires adaptability and sheer talent. Daniel could have an arm hanging off and he would go, Nah I'm good to go, jump into the seat and win. That is pure heart. And bloody determination. Oh and tires.... help to win too.

It’s great to see that after 3 races Ricciardo is slowly but surely getting there. I have no doubt in my mind we’ll see him on a podium this season. It’s also great as a whole because his presence there is forcing lando to really step up his game making them a deadly driver pairing that will only get better

So the 2021 car is more of a handful or unstable to drive than 2020? Less downforce in 2021, feel less planted, wouldn't that ruin performance? Far too technical of a sport rather than focusing what makes good racing. Head up its own arse
Gábor Miklay

My philosophy is: The basic foundation of life: you never know enough and constant learning must be a skill. So, nothing surprising happened here. McLaren wanted to understand Dani Ric's biggest weapon (his braking technique) and Dani Ric wanted to understand McLaren's MCL35M's behavior under braking. Constant learning.

Basically it looks like f1 has become so complicated the drivers even need to be “car specialists” now too. This will kill driver moves as they realise it’s super hard to move as a driver! Boo.

So this video totally contradicts your other video 'Why Verstappen's special F1 driving style is a myth '. Of course cars are different and they suit different drivers, I don't know why you ever tried to say it didn't! Your only explanation was that 'Verstappen is a good driver, and so should everyone else be'. Drivers have unique styles, otherwise each pair would finish exactly the same in the same car.

Honestly he's good but this just shows that there's a gulf in class with drivers like Alonso, Hamilton, and Button - all these drivers were able to be very competitive right from the start with their new teams, Ferrari, Mercedes, and McLaren respectively. It took them no time to get up to speed. These drivers like Perez, Riccardo, Sainz taking a 4-5 Races to get confident in the car whereas the "old school" world champions were able to be competitive and extract the best from their cars immediately just shows how good those guys were and are today

Excellent video, excellent driver. I think the technical difficulties he’s been facing in adjusting his braking style are steep. As a casual observer, it was hard for me to understand why the MCL35M is so difficult for Danny Ric to master. This video clears up the differences between it and the cars he’s been accustomed to thus far. Thanks for the video, please keep up the good work!

That's a proper team right there. Driver doesn't complain and instead tries to adapt. Engineers try to understand the driver's needs and provide all the support they can. Meanwhile, Helmut constantly creates a toxic work environment with his crazy old man comments.

Do you lot ever wonder why Lando kept the yellow sticker? Usually it goes to the No.2 driver or driver who has been there least amount of time, but Lando didn't give it up when Sainz left and Riccardo has the black sticker which is usually for the No1 driver...anyone ever wonder why? Is it because he is paid more and is his senior?

I really wish Ricciardo somehow gets the chance to fight for a championship once more. If there's anyone I'd love to see take that driver's championship, it would be him, although I don't see it happening anymore sadly. I think Daniel must be the most generally liked person in f1.
