Biografie

Daniel Ricciardo joins Renault F1 Team with a successful Formula 1 career to date, which includes no less than seven wins, 29 podiums and three pole positions. His journey to Formula 1 included four years of racing under Renault power across the junior categories in the Formula Renault 2.0 Championship, World Series by Renault and Formula Renault 3.5, before making the step up to Formula 1 midway through the 2011 championship.

Previous Championships

2018 Daniel was announced as a Renault F1 Team driver in August 2018 and will make his debut at his home Grand Prix in Melbourne, Australia, in March.

Daniel finished sixth in the Drivers’ Championship after taking two race wins: the first at the Chinese Grand Prix, the second a famous triumph on the streets of Monaco.

2017 New chassis regulations were put in place ahead of the 2017 season with Daniel finishing fifth in the Drivers’ Championship. He took one win after a frenetic race in Azerbaijan, despite starting tenth on the grid and falling to the back to seventeenth after a lap one collision. Eight more podiums followed with Daniel finishing just five points off fourth place in the championship.
2016 Daniel was back on the pace after a frustrating season in 2015, ending third in the Drivers’ Championship. He took his fourth career victory in Malaysia and clinched a maiden pole position in Monaco. He finished second in the Principality, and claimed further podiums in Hungary, Germany, Belgium, Singapore, USA and Mexico.
2015 In 2015 he finished the Championship in eighth place with two podium finishes: third place in Hungary and second in Singapore.
2014 Daniel graduated to Red Bull Racing ahead of the 2014 Formula 1 season under Renault power. He took his first Formula 1 victory in Montréal, Canada, after starting from sixth on the grid. Two more wins would follow that season, Hungary and Belgium, with Daniel recording five more podiums to finish an impressive third in the Drivers’ Championship.
2011–2013 Daniel made his Formula 1 debut midway through the 2011 season at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone for HRT.

In 2012, Daniel, as a Red Bull Junior, joined sister team Toro Rosso and scored his first points at his home race in Australia in the opening round. He finished the season with 10 points. He again raced for Toro Rosso in 2013 with best finishes of seventh in China and Italy on the way to doubling his points tally he set the year before.

Pre-Formula 1 After starting in karting, Daniel moved to single-seaters in 2005, racing in the Formula BMW series in 2006. He finished third in the Asia category with two wins to his name. 2007 saw Daniel switch to Renault-powered machinery for the first time in the Formula Renault Italy series and Eurocup as a wildcard.

He took his first championship title in 2008 in the Formula Renault WEC following eight wins from 15 starts and finished second in the Eurocup with six wins from 18 races. He won the British Formula 3 Championship a year later and in 2010 finished second in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series, while also undertaking duties as Formula 1 Test Driver for Toro Rosso.

Despite missing four races, Daniel finished fifth in the 2011 Formula Renault 3.5 Series before getting his break in Formula 1.
