Why F1 history warns against Ricciardo’s Renault move

Daniel Ricciardo's decision to abandon Red Bull and switch to Renault means he is leaving a race-winning team for one that currently cannot compete for victories. Historical Formula 1 examples of this have not always turned out well

Timing is everything in Formula 1, and for a driver being in the right place at the right time is a prerequisite for success. Daniel Ricciardo is staking his immediate future on his timing being bang on.

But history tells us this is a huge risk. Usually, when top drivers sign new deals they either move up the grid or cement an existing relationship with a strong team. But Ricciardo has turned down an extended stay at a race-winning squad to join one that hasn't been on the top step of the podium for over five years.
