Daniel Ricciardo has admitted his race preparation for the races leading up to the summer break may have been affected by the stressful process of deciding to leave Red Bull which often left him struggling for sleep.

The Australian shocked Formula One when he announced he would be joining Renault in 2019 when most expected him to be staying with the Milton Keynes outfit or at least making the swap to Ferrari, whom he was heavily linked with joining.

That announcement came in the week following the Hungarian Grand Prix, during the mid-season break, shortly after a drop-off in performances following a blistering start to the season which saw him claim wins in Monaco and China.

The Australian Grand Prix will therefore now be held on March 17, with the season finishing in Abu Dhabi a week later than this season, on December 1.
