Damon Hill has warned Daniel Ricciardo that he will need to stop being ‘fussy’ with his VCARB car to save his struggling F1 career.

“You get to the point where you become fussy about how you like your car,” Hill told the F1 Nation podcast.

“When they’re very young they don’t ask the question. Look at Ollie Bearman. They get one go. They don’t know anything else, they just drive.

“Once you’ve had lots of experience, sometimes the experience overwrites everything else and you’re looking for that good experience again in the set-up and feeling from the car when it’s not going to come because it’s a different car.

“Someone like Yuki’s been told: ‘You’ve got to drive it, this is what it is’, and is just getting on with it, and Daniel’s looking for something else.

“At some point, you have to go to Daniel: ‘Listen, your career is about to evaporate. You just have to get over it and just drive this damned thing and not look for perfection’.

“You’re never going find it. It’s not coming. You’re going to have to find a way to drive this thing and wring its neck, because you’re getting beaten.”
