Daniel Ricciardo has said he is thankful to have made it to the end of the Chinese Grand Prix after back-to-back DNF's to open his 2019 season with Renault.
Renault F1 team
The Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo is the current teammate of Nico Hulkenberg at Renault. Just like Verstappen and Vettel, the Australian was part of Red Bull's talent program. Ricciardo started his Formula 1 career at HRT Racing and Toro Rosso. He was promoted to Red Bull in 2014 as the number two driver next to four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel. The charismatic Ricciardo upset Vettel in his first season with the Austrian racing team as he scored more points than Vettel, prompting the latter to leave for Ferrari. The driver from Perth has seven victories to his name, most recently winning in Monaco in 2018. Mid 2018 the Aussie made the switch to Renault.
