Speculations have been roaring up during this interesting 2020 season. Renault's Daniel Ricciardo has been preforming very well lately, compared to his last 2019 season which was very frustrating and difficult for the Aussie. The Honey Badger made a surprising decision a couple of months ago to move to the Mclaren F1 team in 2021, but has he regretted that decision now because of Renault's newly astounding progress?

Daniel has been on fire lately, scoring many P4's and almost achieving a well awaited a podium at the Tuscan Grand Prix at Mugello. Which has definitely boosted up Dan's confidence lately, as he has still been continuing the get good points and amazing places. We all want to see Dan on the podium again, and to see that infamous shoey. Now it has been closer than ever, with Ricciardo on the cusp of getting a podium finish, and with his famous tattoo bet with his team principle Cyril Abiteboul, every one is rooting for a Honey Badger win.

Ricciardo moving to Mclaren is one of the best decisions Daniel could have made for himself, since Mclaren is starting to improve even more now. However, the last few races have been proving Renault’s results are increasing and improving a lot, and they now appear to be a little bit stronger than McLaren, and outperforming them most of the time. Is Daniel Ricciardo having second thoughts? The Aussie has given us the answer to this very intriguing question.

Daniel started off by saying that he is happy with the progress of Renault...

“Am I happy to see us progress? Absolutely. And you know it’s all well and good if it means that we’ve got Renault as a competitor next year to push McLaren further then I think that’s good for everyone. So, no, I’m not regretting it”

“I’m also not unhappy with the progress. I want to be racing at the front. And obviously every race in F1 is so important. So, every chance I get to do it, the sooner the better”

Then Daniel explained that the team has always been good to him, no matter the circumstance..

“So, I am glad we’re making progress. And I feel a part of it which is important as well for me and I guess my growth as a driver. The team haven’t shut me out with anything. I’ve been doing simulator and all of it. So, it’s been really good to work with them”

As you can see Daniel is respectful to his team, but also will never regret his decision. Ricciardo also explained that it will be a little depressing leaving the team..

“I know for sure [it’s] bittersweet especially for some guys in the team to know that I can’t continue on after this year, but I’m going to give it a red-hot crack till the last day”

The Aussie ended the answer explaining that he does not regret anything.

“It’s obviously no disrespect to Renault and where I currently am but no, I don’t regret it”

  • His switch from redbull is looking like a genius move now.

  • I wrote up my thoughts on this recently and though Daniel says this, he pretty much has to. With Renault's improvements for the 2020 season, I think he's in a no-lose situation. Both Renault and McLaren are as good as each other for 2022 when any number of teams could move to the front. They both have championship-winning credentials and Dan won't struggle for a seat. His current teammate, however...

  • I think that even if Renault continue to improve next year, he'll really enjoy relishing in the challenge of beating them at McLaren to prove he made the right call and that he's still Championship material.
