The Renault F1 Team has released photographs of Daniel Ricciardo wearing the team’s apparel for the first time.

Red Bull Racing blocked its former driver from testing for the factory Renault team in November’s post-season tyre test in Abu Dhabi.

As such, Ricciardo had not been seen publicly in Renault clothing, or one of its cars, until now.

The new images feature the West Australian in a team polo shirt as well as shots of himself and new team-mate Nico Hulkenberg in their 2019 racesuits.

Ricciardo’s shock decision to leave Red Bull for Renault was announced last August, a move which he attributed to wanting a “fresh start”.

Renault F1 Team’s season launch will take place in a week’s time at its Enstone base.
