Daniel Ricciardo and Renault set for highly awkward F1 2020 finish

“That’s a pretty good analogy,” Ricciardo said. “From my side it’s like, OK, there’s still a ton of people within this organisation who are really happy to have me here and who are excited to see me drive a black and yellow race car.

“So obviously again, I’ll do it for myself because I want to compete and race but I still want to give back to them everything I signed up for.”

But F1 expert Martin Brundle fears it won’t be that easy as Sebastian Vettel, who is leaving Ferrari, and Carlos Sainz, who is leaving McLaren to replace Vettel, also prepare for awkward reunions with their current teams when the season starts in Austria this weekend.
