Red Bull star Ricciardo joins Renault

The Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team have confirmed Daniel Ricciardo will leave the team at the end of the 2018 Formula 1 season, where it is understood the Australian will join Renault as the lead driver for 2019.

Daniel Ricciardo is to leave Red Bull at the end of this season for Renault after his patience at being paid significantly less than his younger team-mate Max Verstappen finally snapped.

In the most dramatic move of this year’s driver market, the Australian, who had grown increasingly frustrated by his team’s favourable treatment of the Dutch star, ­decided to walk away from a company with whom he has spent his entire seven-year career in Formula One.
