  • F1: Mercedes troll Daniel Ricciardo amid Red Bull-Renault madness

Ricciardo leaves Red Bull having spent the past five seasons with the team, winning on seven occasions and claiming 29 podium finishes.

As we now know, that proved to be far from the case.

Ricciardo's shock move to Renault came out of the blue as many believed he would agree a new deal with Red Bull, whilst only Ferrari and McLaren, however unlikely, were mentioned as possible alternatives.

Ricciardo yesterday announced he will be leaving Red Bull at the end of the year to join Formula One rivals Renault.

Waratahs boss Daryl Gibson signs contract extension
Gibson said he was proud of the team's achievements over the past year, and that he was "excited about what's to come".

However, it appears the recent form of the side proved to be the key factor standing in the way of the proposed move. He has repeatedly expressed his desire to drive a vehicle that can rival for a championship, but so far, Red Bull has failed to provide him with a racer that will challenge the Mercs and Ferraris on all races. Had we been running more competitively I think that would have increased our odds.

"Excited for what lies ahead with Renault", Ricciardo continued, "but [I] just want to thank Red Bull Racing, Red Bull the company, for everything they've done for me. But he was certainly someone that we rate very highly". Brown believes Ricciardo's surprise departure from Red Bull won't affect his team's or Alonso's plans for 2019.

"I felt it was good for me to move on and a fresh start somewhere else".

The Australian has been on Red Bull's books since 2008, winning titles in Formula Renault 2.0 and British Formula 3 before the energy drinks giant brought him into grand prix racing in 2011. "Never say never, but I don't think it changes anything in Fernando's world".
