Ricciardo hoping bad luck will dissolve at Renault

Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo has explained how he is desperate for his "bad luck" to "dissolve" when he makes the switch to Renault in 2019.

Ricciardo has only won two races this season in China and Monaco, in a very underwhelming season; including eight DNFs for Red Bull.

But ahead of his much-anticipated switch to Renault for the 2019 season; Ricciardo is praying the bad luck he has suffered in the Red Bull will "dissolve" as he moves on from the energy drink brand.

"After 2018, the bad luck is just going to dissolve," the Aussie said. "The bad luck will stay in 2018. Look, I am certainly excited for a change and a new challenge.

"But whether I'd had a run of good races or the run I've had, it would not actually change my feeling about where I am going next year."

Ricciardo is determined to move on from this season; and excited for his new career at Renault to get underway.

"Even before this run of misfortune, I was already looking and tempted to move on and have something different," Ricciardo continued. "I don't see it any different now.

"Part of me, as excited as I am to try and have a good result in the final race, I am also just excited to get the year finished and start fresh with a new team next year."
