F1 2020, Daniel Ricciardo: Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul is disappointed with McLaren move

Published

on

Renault Sport Formula 1 team principal Cyril Abiteboul has revealed two rival teams attempted to poach star driver Daniel Ricciardo during the coronavirus lockdown.

Earlier this month, it was announced Ricciardo had signed with McLaren for the 2021 season, bringing his brief stint with Renault to a close. However, the Australian driver will need to complete a shortened 2020 season with Renault, with whom he had limited success last year.

Ricciardo managed zero podium finishes in the 2019 season. The 30-year-old finished ninth on the official standings, his worst Formula 1 performance in six years.

Abiteboul said he was particularly “disappointed” with Ricciardo’s departure because it continued the worrying trend of instability and inconsistency within the Renault team. He also reported 70 per cent of Renault’s staff had a change of management or structure to their department over the last 12 months.

Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix 2020 (11.10pm EST) — Almost four months after teams abandoned the Australian Grand Prix, the 2020 Formula One season finally gets underway tonight.

He will have to start the race, however, from second on the grid after Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas beat him to pole on Saturday by just 0.012 seconds.

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo may be cursing his luck after the F1 season’s first qualifying session on Saturday, but he still has more than one reason to smile.

The Renault driver qualified for the Austrian Grand Prix in 10th — a disappointing result given he could have went faster without yellow flags forcing him to slow on his flying lap.

But way up ahead in fourth position was a surprise result that Ricciardo will no doubt secretly enjoy.
