Ricciardo taking the positives from Spa despite picking up no points

Renault failed to collect any points at the Belgian Grand Prix but Daniel Ricciardo feels that there's still reason to have optimism from the pace which they showed at Spa. The Aussies race suffered a major setback after he was hit by Racing Point's Lance Stroll on the first corner.

His teammate Nico Hulkenberg was able to come through with an 8th place finish but Ricciardo knows that the results could've been so much better than they were.

"It was promising - and I think even in the race, with such a damaged car, we held on pretty well," Ricciardo told Motorsport.com.

"From the weekend itself, I think it was a very very strong weekend for us on pace.

"And coming into some of these other more low-downforce circuits, like Monza and that, I think it's promising.

"So we've just got to keep it rolling. We've missed out on double points, I think we definitely could've got a good handful, but we'll move on."

Renault sits sixth in the standings, just eight points behind the team above them, Toro Rosso.
