Daniel Ricciardo: This season has reiterated what I want in the sport

Daniel Ricciardo is regarded as one of the most talented drivers on the grid. He moved from Red Bull to Renault at the end of last season and the team has not performed as well as they would have hoped. However, Ricciardo is remaining positive and has said that he always knew it was going to be a tough season. 

"It was my massive intention to come here," Ricciardo said to BBC Sport. "My intention wasn't to have a two-year layover somewhere else. I know people might still think that, but I really want this to work. I feel like the hours I have put in this year have shown I have the drive to want to do so."

"Yes, we're at times further back than we expected and hoped, but I knew there would be work to be done and a lot of hours to put in. I feel like I was prepared for that.

"Even though I feel like I have worked more hours and probably worked harder this year than in previous years, it has still been quite enjoyable because the environment is different - new people, new relationships.

"If anything, it has reiterated what I want in the sport."

Renault will continue to develop and after their impressive 4th and 5th place at the Italian Grand Prix, they will be hoping to take the battle to McLaren in the final stint of the season.
