Formula 1: Red Bull Did Everything To Keep Daniel Ricciardo
In order to keep Aussie Daniel Ricciardo on their books, Red Bull did everything in their capacity, according to Red Bull Formula One manager Christian Horner.
The group of Ricciardo and Max Verstappen were extremely focused and notwithstanding the Aussie’s eight retirements, could have pushed for higher in the constructor and driver’s titles.
For the 2019 season, changing from Renault motors to Honda, Red Bull thought they had concocted an ideal arrangement.
However, the Aussie altered his opinion, marking with Renault, despite Ricciardo and Red Bull being deep into transactions and were expected to go to an arrangement soon.
The F1 world was dazed by this move from Ricciardo.
After Ricciardo declared he was making the move, it prompted the teams exchanging barbs all through the season.
Ricciardo completed 6th this season and Verstappen completed fourth, and this had allowed Red Bull to place at the 3rd position on the constructor title rankings.
Following Ricciardo’s last race, Horner emphasized his pity at Ricciardo’s takeoff, calling the Ricciardo-Verstappen matching one of, if not the best on the framework.
Unwavering quality issues had tormented the two drivers throughout the years however Ricciardo felt it more this year.
