Red Bull turns on F1 ace Daniel Ricciardo

"That they can influence a guy like (Riciardo's replacement at Red Bull in 2019) Pierre Gasly I can understand, and not a driver like Daniel Ricciardo, and that I respect". But the more I thought about starting something different and taking on a new challenge, I got excited.

"It was a decision that probably I started thinking about last year, and then this year, 2018, there were a lot of changes in the team so I thought that it was worth staying one more year".

However, Autosport says that the new team will be allowed to keep the prize money it has won this season. By no means was it an easy decision at all and I feel I just got to a point where I felt I was ready for a change.

Ricciardo added in the Thursday press conference: There was no bad blood or falling out with anyone with the team, with the bosses or anyone at all. It's obviously been awesome and great and I just felt like now it's time to take on something new.

"I think everyone was surprised, at the end of the day he has to feel good about the decision, that is most important", said Verstappen. "Life changes very quickly".

The Perth-born driver won his first three Formula One wins in Canada, Hungary and Belgium and finished third overall in the championship during his first season at Red Bull. I don't have a crystal ball to know what will happen.

"One, they have never worked with me, and secondly they have chased me on five or six occasions over the last seven years". "But I don't think he was impressed by Red Bull's communications strategy, vis a vis Renault, vis a vis Honda, and how flawless Honda is".

He said the decision had been a long time coming, rather than one made in the spur of the moment.

While he agreed that there was an element of risk involved in his move to Renault, the key factor had been him "wanting to have a change of scenery" after 10 years in the Red Bull family.

The second Ferrari seat alongside Sebastian Vettel is the only place at the top two teams that has not been announced at this stage but Alonso's remarks seem to confirm the increasing impression in F1 that Kimi Raikkonen will be retained.

"I don't want go back and forth with this - I have better things to do".

Alonso, meanwhile, has his sights firmly set on the Triple Crown as he tries to cement his legacy in racing.

Ricciardo stunned Red Bull during the summer break by announcing a switch to the French manufacturer for next year.

"The thing that struck me about Renault was that they were prepared to be honest. A few sleepless trying to come up with the best conclusion for myself but once I made that decision and pulled the trigger I felt comfortable with it and it feels right moving forward for next year".

"I'm confident they can deliver a vehicle that is capable of winning every race, we just need the whole package and we are working towards that".
