jodrell commented on the post, Ricciardo: No regrets over decision to leave Renault for McLaren

In the round-up: Daniel Ricciardo says he’s not having any second thoughts about leaving Renault to join McLaren despite his current team’s improvement in form.

What they say

Ricciardo was asked if he regretted signing to join McLaren for 2021.

It’s obviously no disrespect to Renault and where I currently am but no, I don’t regret it.

Am I happy to see us progress? Absolutely. And you know all well and good if it means that we’ve got Renault as a competitor next year to push McLaren further then that’s I think that’s good for everyone. So, no, I’m not regretting it.

But I’m also not unhappy with the progress. I want to be racing at the front. And obviously every race in F1 is so important. So every chance I get to do it, the sooner the better.

So I am glad we’re making progress. And I feel a part of it which is important as well for me and I guess my growth as a driver. The team haven’t shut me out with anything. I’ve been doing simulator and all of it. So it’s it’s been really good to work with them.

I know for sure [it’s] bittersweet especially for some guys in the team to know that I can’t continue on after this year, but I’m going to give it a red hot crack till till the last day.
