Daniel Ricciardo stuns Formula 1 fans with 2019 move to Renault

Daniel Ricciardo German GP 2018

With the F1 world now in its annual enforced summer break, something instituted to cut costs and revitalise flyaway team members in the middle of a packed calendar, the biggest developments before the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa on August 28 will be in the driver market.

Daniel Ricciardo says his switch from Red Bull to Renault for the 2019 Formula One season is one of the toughest decisions he has made in his entire life.

"We fully respect Daniel's decision to leave. and we wish him all the best in his future", said Red Bull team boss Christian Horner.

"It was probably one of the most hard decisions to take in my career so far", said Ricciardo in a Renault statement. "But I thought it was time to try something new and take on a new task", said ricciardo after signing the contract with Renault. Ricciardo is a seven-time race victor and regarded as one of the best drivers in the field, and he's taking a leap of faith to a team with a top finish of fifth in 2018.

Daniel Ricciardo will drive for a team other than Red Bull Racing in 2019.

It had been widely assumed that the team's Mercedes-backed French driver Esteban Ocon was bound for Renault.

Daniel Ricciardo overtakes Renault's Nico Hulkenberg. Ricciardo added: "I hope to be able to help them in this journey".

"Excited for what lies ahead with Renault", Ricciardo continued, "but [I] just want to thank Red Bull Racing, Red Bull the company, for everything they've done for me".

His move is likely to trigger a string of driver moves in coming weeks, firstly as Red Bull searches for a replacement alongside Verstappen and then as the lesser teams shuffle their line-ups.

For the past several seasons, Formula 1 has been dominated by three superteams - Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull - which have combined to win every single race dating back to the second race of the 2013 season.

Full statement from Red Bull 'Daniel Ricciardo has advised us that he is to leave the Team at the end of the 2018 season.

But Hamilton finished fourth in the Driver's standings the next year before the team went on to dominate the next five years of F1.

"I really appreciate it, from the bottom of my heart, and we've got nine races left to kick some arse, so let's get it".
