F1 2020, Formula One, Austrian Grand Prix: Daniel Ricciardo won’t be frozen out by Renault before McLaren switch

Published

on

Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul says Daniel Ricciardo will still play a crucial role in the team’s development despite leaving at the end of 2020.

Ricciardo called it quits at Renault before turning a wheel in anger this year, opting to join long-term admirers McLaren for 2021.

Such a move historically sees the wantaway frozen out of development discussions and relegated to No.2 driver status.

Abiteboul, however, says neither will be the case for Ricciardo, whose experience will be milked by the French manufacturer until the very end of his lucrative contract.
