After finishing at the Spa, Daniel Riccardo admitted that he wanted to refuse to participate in the race after the death of Antoine Hubert …

Daniel Riccardo: “I am glad that the race is behind and this weekend has ended. I understood that the best way to honor the memory of Antoine is to go to the start, but I do not think that today any of us wanted to participate in the race. I speak for myself, but I’m sure I’m not the only one.

It was very hard. It’s hard to be here with a manly face. I know that in the paddock, many were very hurt. Now everyone is glad that everything is behind and we can move on. I hope this is the last time such tragedies occur.

I was thinking about refusing to participate in the race. I asked myself if it was worth it. A simple and honest question. Yes, this is our work, our profession and our life, but on the other hand it’s just a race in a circle.

When I saw members of the Antoine family today, it added me strength. Seeing them, it would be wrong to show weakness. I can’t imagine myself in their place, I can’t imagine what they are feeling right now. But today they were much stronger than any of us. ”
