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.
