Daniel Ricciardo news, F1 2019, Renault F1, Mexican F1 GP

Published

on

A late charge to sixth in the Japanese Grand Prix has Daniel Ricciardo confident of a late-season push with Renault as he looks to maintain a top 10 season finish.

Ricciardo surged from 16th following a difficult qualifying in Suzuka, with the Australian fighting through the field twice to register just his third top six finish this season.

Considering the tightness of the midfield battle, it was a vital result for Ricciardo — just 11 points separate Ricciardo in ninth to Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen in 14th in the standings ahead of this weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix.

The topsy-turvy form of Renault has left the team in an uncomfortable position, with McLaren now 34 points ahead in fourth in the constructors’ standings, with Toro Rosso 18 points behind.

It took a “borrowed” bike to get there, but reigning champion Marc Marquez has claimed Honda took a “great step” with its troublesome 2020 RC213V in the Qatar test.

Tests in Sepang and Qatar proved Honda is behind the eight ball ahead of next weekend’s season opener at the Losail International Circuit, while Marquez himself is battling post-shoulder surgery.

Across the tests, all riders on the 2020-spec Honda – Marquez, younger brother Alex, Cal Crutchlow and Takaaki Nakagami – all reported struggles with front-end handling.

The season-opening Superloop Adelaide 500 again fell into the hands of Scott McLaughlin, who opened his title defence with a second straight overall victory.

The two-time defending champion came away with two trophies and the championship lead, and again staked his claim to be the one to beat.

However, away from the obvious headline of McLaughlin’s victory, it was clear from the bounce that a number of rival teams had made gains and discovered momentum which could prove valuable in mounting a title challenge.
