Last week we saw Daniel Ricciardo come back for the preparation. It was time to remove the cobwebs and rev himself for the upcoming 2020 season. And he saw himself in good prep after the 115 laps at the Red Bull Ring, in the two-year-old Renault. After the races, the Australian driver admits, it was a bit of foreign emotion for being out of the car for so long. It did go for a long time- 115 days, since the lat testing season, and return to the cockpit.
For him, it felt good. In the early laps, it felt something new, something foreign for him. But if you do something whole your life, it always comes back to you. The most hurt comes after survival. A few laps and pits, the soreness of the body, and shaking off the cobwebs. It really matters. And now, he is already past them. On asking about comparing the RS 20 and RS 18, he was not equivocal. The RS 18 was not so good as compared. He did get a chance on the RS 20, and it was upgraded. It did come a long way in these two years, and that shows what they have innovated. It is what you have progressed at this time.
For him, most important is how will the RS 20 perform in Austria, the fifth best-pegged team in the testing seasons.
