Daniel Ricciardo has made clear he is committed to McLaren in the wake of rumours suggesting he could walk away from the sport.

Ricciardo's future at the team has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks, following comments from McLaren team boss Zak Brown that the partnership "had not met expectations".

In response, Ricciardo said he took Brown's words as a "roundabout way of a compliment" and made a return to the points-paying positions last time out at the Austrian Grand Prix.

Now, in a bid to put the issue to bed, the 33-year-old Australian insists he plans to stick with McLaren for the 2023 season.

Ricciardo takes to social media

Writing on social media, Ricciardo said: "There have been a lot of rumours around my future in Formula 1, but I want you to hear it from me.

"I am committed to McLaren until the end of next year and am not walking away from the sport.

"Appreciate it hasn't always been easy, but who wants easy! I'm working my ass off with the team to make improvements and get the car right and back to the front where it belongs.

"I still want this more than ever. See you [at the next round] in Le Castellet."
