“Why is he still in Formula 1? said Villeneuve. “We’ve been hearing the same thing for four or five years, we need to improve things for him, it’s a shame. It’s been five years since then. Sorry, no, you’re in F1.

“Maybe you made this effort for Lewis Hamilton, who won so many championships. Don’t put this effort on a runner who can’t do it. Can’t you cut it? “Go home, someone else can take your place.”

Ricciardo took his last of eight F1 victories in 2021. The 34-year-old Australian took his first F1 victory in 10 years in Montreal.

“Obviously I’m very motivated to do more than this year,” Ricciardo said. “I know how incredible the results are, that’s why I do it, to feel the peak.

“At the start of this week, everything seemed fine. I’m very happy to be back on this track and riding here because I love it. Today it has been 10 years since my first victory, and that day changed my life, a good feeling appeared.

Although Ricciardo does not have a specific deal in place for next season, RB said on Saturday that his compatriot Yuki Tsunoda will remain with the team.
