Ricciardo's sneaky Monaco practice run


//

Aussie Daniel Ricciardo has arrived in Monaco ahead of the biggest event on the F1 calendar and it appears the reigning stage champion has snuck in a bit of early practice before he gets behind the wheel next Sunday.

Ricciardo famously claimed the Manco Grand Prix last year with Red Bull Racing in a clinical display at the esteemed circuit.

Having struggled since his unexpected move to team Renault ahead of the 2019 season, the 29-year-old currently sits 12th on the F1 standings having only picked up points at the Chinese GP. And it appears the Aussie is doing everything in his power to bag maximum points at Monaco and hopefully retain his crown.

In a clip posted to Instagram, Ricciardo trades in his usual four wheels for two as he whips around the circuit weaving in and out of traffic all while hitting his racing lines perfectly.

 “Getting my eye in for next week,” he posted alongside the video which garnered a host of attention from fellow athletes.

Australian endure off-road motorcycle world champion Toby price was impressed with his fellow rev-head’s speed on two wheels.

“Ready for Dakar now mate,” he joked in the comments.

“Got some speed on ya!”

Daniel Ricciardo bellyflop

The Monaco GP begins Sunday 26th May at 11pm. Most recently, Red Bull’s chief motorsport advisor says Ricciardo was deceived into joining Renault by false promises of a much-improved car for 2019.

In the latest instalment of an escalating war of words between Red Bull and Renault, Helmut Marko slammed Renault for failing to deliver on their promises when they supplied engines to Red Bull. That deal resulted in four world titles from between 2010-2013, before ending in acrimony after Renault failed to adapt to the hybrid-turbo era.

Marko said Renault often failed to live up to its own hype, which Ricciardo fell for.

“Renault is good at that,” Marko told Motorsport-Total.

“They showed us charts over and over again, showing the engine will be massive next year. He (Ricciardo) will have just believed it.

“The story should read that he decides in the summer, whether he goes to Ferrari or Mercedes or remains with Red Bull.”
