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.

Daniel Ricciardo suffered a day filled of more frustration during his second testing run with Renault on Wednesday morning (AEDT) after spinning off track following a rear wing failure.

The Australian, who finished the slowest of the 11 drivers to test on day one, only managed the ninth-quickest lap on day two, with new teammate Nico Hulkenberg again one place ahead of him.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has warned Brexit will be a “nightmare scenario” for Formula 1 and is a major concern to all of the teams currently based in the UK.

Of the 10 teams in F1 this season, only three are primarily based outside the UK with Mercedes, Renault, McLaren, Red Bull, Williams, Haas and Racing Point all set to be affected by Brexit.

March 29th is the date the UK is set to leave the European Union and with the political uncertainty in the country at the moment, they are set to exit with a no-deal outcome, something that would be disastrous to F1 as a sport, claims Wolff.
