Daniel Ricciardo believes chaos is on the cards for Formula 1 as it returns in Austria, with drivers not being in the cockpit since February, having to readjust to racing.

Whilst talking to BBC Sport the Renault driver said, “There could be “some form of chaos”. he carried on saying “Hopefully [it is] in a controlled manner, When I say chaos, I’m not really referencing cars everywhere, but I’m just referencing there’s going to be so much, a combination of rust, emotion, excitement, just eagerness.”

“Everyone is going to be ready to go. I think you’re going to get some guys who perform on that level of adrenaline, and others who might not.

“That’s going to create some bold overtakes and some miscalculated ones. You’re going to see a bit of everything, I’m sure.”

The future McLaren driver also said he doesn’t anticipate any physical injuries when he returns racing in his R.S.20 however hinted the younger drivers may struggle more to readjust then the series veterans.

“I’ve noticed over time, my first few winter testings in the early part of my career, day one always felt like a bit of a shock to the system again. The further my career has gone on, the less of a shock that has been.

“The body is conditioned enough by now with experience that it will be OK. I would say the rookies, the first year, second year guys would feel it a little more.”
