Daniel Ricciardo to join Renault for 2019 F1 season

RUMOUR Verstappen set to use his veto on Carlos Sainz

"It shows how serious Renault is about attacking Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull", Sports24 quoted Hulkenberg, as saying.

Instead he's chose to jump ship after a decade in the Red Bull camp and take on a new challenge as Nico Hulkenberg's team-mate. While his switch to Renault F1 team does provide a sense of optimism for Cyril Abiteboul's team, Ricciardo's fans should be well aware that a Championship win is yet a distant dream for the Aussie who has lost faith in Red Bull's ability to deliver a championship winning vehicle till at least 2020.

Last week, Daniel Ricciardo has announced that he will be leaving Red Bull Racing at the end of the 2018 Formula 1 season. Excited for the challenge at Renault, but it's been a 10-year journey in Red Bull. In such a scenario it is interesting to see his team partner with Honda for engine supply up till 2020.

According to Renault's Cyril Abiteboul, negotiations between the driver and the French team had been ongoing for some time, but Ricciardo's hefty retainer demands required a big stamp of approval from Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn.

"Excited for what lies ahead with Renault, but just want to thank Red Bull Racing, Red Bull the company, for everything they've done for me".

Daniel Ricciardo has made the call to switch camps.

For a driver who is a champion prospect, to win no championships till the age of 29 is a cause of concern.

"I think he had a strong desire to leave and I think it was probably pretty close between us and Renault, but ultimately Daniel would be best to tell you how close".
