Daniel Ricciardo reveals reason for parting Renault message, F1 2019

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo is talking the talk and he expects Renault to walk the walk.

The Aussie signed off from the 2019 F1 season with a limp 11th placed finish at last weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, bringing to an end a disappointing debut year with the French outfit.

Renault was fifth in the constructors’ championship, 54 points behind McLaren, while Ricciardo ended up ninth in the drivers’ standings.

After making the move from Red Bull at the end of 2018, Ricciardo and Renault barely fired a shot all season but the West Australian is already eyeing a brighter future in 2020.

After he crossed the line in Abu Dhabi, Ricciardo offered a message of support to the team watching on from the garage. “Thank you guys. I really mean it but we will get better next year, a lot better. I really think we will. So let’s get it,” he said over the team radio.

V8 Supercars 2020, The Bend SuperSprint, preview, schedule: Drivers expect carnage

Published

on

Drivers are expecting The Bend’s West Circuit to generate plenty of entertainment when the 3.41km layout makes its Supercars debut this weekend.

The key change from the usual International Circuit is the omission of the back loop featuring multiple fast right-hand corners. Instead, the new Turn 6 will become a sharp hairpin, linking more directly to the final five corners.

The change should make the The Bend SuperSprint a very different challenge for drivers and engineers alike.
