    Ricciardo criticizes excessive F1 accident promotion

    The Australian was one of the most critical when F1 issued the Grosjean crash

    He also criticizes Netflix for reflecting a non-existent enmity between him and Sainz

    Daniel Ricciardo describes the attitude of Formula 1 as “idiotic” when it comes to promoting accidents so much on their social networks. The Australian is very unhappy about all the prominence these unfortunate events receive and encourages the category to take a quality leap in its content.

    Ricciardo was one of the drivers most critical of Formula 1 when it came to broadcasting over and over again the brutal accident of Romain Grosjean at the Bahrain GP. In addition, in the video of the best moments of the year, the Great Circus decided that eight of them were accidents.

    “Last year, Formula 1 put on social media the ten best moments of the year or something like that and eight of the ten were accidents. I was like ‘You are idiots’. Maybe 12-year-olds want to see that kind of content and that’s fine because they don’t know any better, but we’re not kids. They must do better, “Ricciardo acknowledged in an interview with Square Mile magazine.

    As for Netflix, Ricciardo criticizes that in the second season they tried to create an artificial rivalry between him and Carlos Sainz.

    “In the second season, there were some episodes or parts where I feel like they pushed it a bit. They tried to create a bit of a rivalry between me and Sainz. He is no more rival than anyone else, there was no personal grudge with him, but I think Netflix wanted something, so many questions were about Carlos, “he added.

    “Maybe nobody noticed, but everything is fine with him. There are probably other drivers that I dislike, unlike Carlos. I mean, he dresses like a 60-year-old, but otherwise so good.“, Ricciardo has joked to conclude.
