Ricciardo encouraged by Renault’s gains at “one of our worst circuits”

In the round-up: Renault’s improves performance at the Red Bull Ring gives Daniel Ricciardo confidence for the upcoming races.

What they say

Ricciardo is encouraged about Renault’s prospects following the performance of their car in the opening races:

I love the Hungaroring. It’s one of my favourite circuits.

So just to go back there, I’m really glad it got a place on this year’s calendar obviously with all the changes that are happening. So I’m very happy to be there in a week.

I’m excited to go there because I think we’ve been competitive in Austria and 12 months ago it was one of our worst circuits of the season. So coming into Budapest, I think we’re going to be in my head at least, we’re going to be more competitive and have a good chance. And I think that and the fact that I really enjoy the circuit is two positives. Hopefully that builds into something very, very nice. I can’t wait. I saw the weather as warm as well, high 20s, so I can’t wait to get there.
