Ricciardo: Renault will show true pace in France

Ricciardo: Renault will show true pace in France

Daniel Ricciardo says Renault will show their "true pace" in the French Grand Prix this weekend as the home squad looks to build on their best performance of the season so far in Canada. Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg brought home a double points finish for the first time in Montreal.

Having battled reliability issues, triggered by a double DNF in Bahrain, Renault have been back to full power in Monaco and Canada.

With an aerodynamic upgrade set to be introduced at Circuit Paul Ricard, Ricciardo is excited for the weekend ahead.

He said: "We entered the season with a lot of expectation on us. I think we’re really starting to come up and show our true pace.

"I’m glad the team enjoyed a strong weekend as it’s been stressful at times, but we kept working and now I’m optimistic this is the start of heading on the right path.

"There’s clearly a lot more work to do to catch up to our expectations, but fighting with the front three for a part of the Canada race was a lot of fun.

When will Renault next win a race?

"I’m really looking forward to embracing the French atmosphere and hopefully doing the team proud.

"I know it’s a significant race for them and how much it means to everyone involved. The target for France has to be repeating the form of Canada.

"The team had good pace at Paul Ricard last year, so there’s certainly a good feeling there. We have some upgrades, which should mean the start of a trend of our true pace.

"It’s coming along well and, as the car gets better, I’m also growing in confidence and I’ll keep getting better with it."
