Marco: “This story is bullshit.”

In a conversation with Motorsport-Total.com Helmut Marko refers the story to the realm of myth from New Zealand. He insists there was no ultimatum for Ricciardo and suspects the speculation may have stemmed from the fact Ricciardo had to skip the first free practice of the Japanese GP. Japanese driver Ayunu Iwasa will drive his car during the first practice session of his home GP. The racing bulls do this so that there will be at least one session in which the two Japanese are in action, as the Grand Prix is ​​held at the home of motorcycle manufacturer Honda. Iwasa driving is said to have been planned for some time and therefore has nothing to do with Daniel Ricciardo's performance.
