Daniel Ricciardo could be set for another strong showing this weekend at Renault’s home grand prix if comments by teammate Nico Hulkenberg is anything to go by.

Last time out at the Canadian Grand Prix saw Renault record their biggest points haul of the season to date as Ricciardo and Hulkenberg finished in P6 and P7 respectively, splitting the Red Bulls in the process.

They also put in a strong qualifying performance, with Ricciardo in at P4 before managing to hold off the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas for as many as six laps.

The schedule has lost Germany but is expanding with the addition of Vietnam and the return after a long absence of Dutch circuit Zandvoort.

Commercial rights holders Liberty Media want to structure the calendar so they can accommodate a maximum of 25 races.

Daniel Ricciardo’s new teammate Esteban Ocon started work as a Renault Formula One driver in post-season testing on Tuesday and said it was good to be back behind the wheel.

The 23-year-old Frenchman lost his drive with Racing Point at the end of 2018 but has returned to replace departed German Nico Hulkenberg for 2020 alongside Australian star Ricciardo after a year as a reserve for champions Mercedes.

He told France’s Le Figaro newspaper he might have returned last weekend as a stand-in when Williams’ British rookie George Russell reported sick at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, but that did not happen.

The FIA said in a statement after a World Motor Sport Council meeting in Paris that the waved chequered flag would be reinstated next season as the “definitive end-of-race signal”.

Under new rules introduced this year, a digital chequered flag mounted on the starting lights gantry took precedence over the physical flag, which was still waved as before when cars crossed the finish line.
