F1 news 2020, Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Daniel Ricciardo, results, podium, Renault, McLaren, latest, gossip, rumours

Daniel Ricciardo secured yet another epic 2020 podium for Renault at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix on the weekend but a number of pundits believe he may now be left with a “strange” feeling on his pre-season gamble to switch to McLaren.

The Aussie has landed two podiums in his last three races after benefitting most from former teammate Max Verstappen’s unlucky crash at Imola, while propelled him into the top three behind Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.

That result put him into fourth in the driver standings and lifted Renault into third in the constructor standings in what has been a season of huge progress for both after a disappointing 2019.
