Daniel Ricciardo does not see Renault as the favorite for third place in the constructors’ championship, but hopes that the team still has a chance to get ahead of Racing Point and McLaren. With three races to go in the season, Renault is fifth in the championship, 18 points behind Racing Point and 13 points behind McLaren, and just 6 points ahead of Ferrari.
Daniel Riccardo: “Now Renault is an outsider, but third place is still achievable, because there are still three races ahead. If there were one or two stages left, I would be more pessimistic, but now we still have a chance.
It is a pity that in Turkey the rivals were able to break away from us. There is no point in denying that such a loss is unpleasant for us, but there are three races ahead, so there is a chance. There is no doubt that the remaining races will be held on a dry track, but opportunities are still there. Bahrain has a narrow first corner where Sergio and Lance might want to bump into each other! “
