Daniel Ricciardo says the progress that Renault has made with its engine leaves him “excited” to see what his team can do at Monza this weekend.
While Renault has in recent years faced a notable power deficit against Mercedes and Ferrari, the French car manufacturer seems to have closed the gap considerably in 2019.

“We have definitely, and people can see it from a power side, we have made a lot of progress this year,” explained the Australian. “Last week in Spa we had quite a slippery car down the straights, so that is good.
“It gives certainly some optimism coming here and I am certainly excited to race here. It is always one I enjoy.
“I think we will be okay and it is not one we look at and say ‘oh it’s not going to be a good track for us’. I think we will be okay.”
Ricciardo said he never experienced fans celebrating any incidents he had had, as he suggested it was behaviour more akin to children than adults.
“I don’t wish it upon anyone and I only knew it happened with Lewis because I read that he said it had,” added Ricciardo.
“Having rivals and whatever, yeah, you don’t have to like every driver. But to behave like that, you would expect it from kids but not adults. You would hope they would behave better.”
