Daniel Ricciardo will not be joining Renault Sport Formula One Team in 2019 after all… because they have tweaked their name to just Renault F1 Team.

The move by the French manufacturer is in an attempt to strengthen the links between the Renault brand and F1 as well as also making it sound “simpler and more natural” which will help grow its fan base worldwide.

The name will be used immediately ahead of the 2019 season.
