Ricciardo and Hulkenberg, all suited and booted in Renault kit!


The Renault F1 Team published on Twitter the first pictures of Daniel Ricciardo all suited and booted in his new team kit, along with his new team mate Nico Hulkenberg.

A change of colors hasn't led to a persona switch for Ricciardo however who retains his trademark smile.

The two men head into the season with different challenges. While Hulkenberg will be out to prove himself against a bona fide Grand Prix winner for the first time in his career, Ricciardo hopes his move to the French squad will pay dividends down the road.

Overall however, it's a fresh start for the Aussie.

"When I signed, I knew that there was work ahead," Ricciardo admits.

"I know that they’re putting a lot of effort into making things better and expanding a lot of departments and trying to make ’19 stronger and ’20 and whatever.

" '19 is a new car and it’s going to be a fresh start again.

"Obviously, all I can do is try to be fully immersed into it all and try to help as much as I can and see how things go from there."

For starters, the Honey Badger looks yeasty bananas in yellow!
