Daniel Ricciardo says Renault made engine ‘statement’ at Italian GP

Following heading the group’s best result since their entire yield at Monza, daniel Ricciardo reserved special praise.
Ricciardo claimed his greatest finish since joining the group while Nico Hulkenberg matched his best ending following a Italian GP weekend where their car ran in the top with fifth for Renault.
The result represented the highest two-car finish for a works Renault squad since the 2008 Japanese GP, when Fernando Alonso won the race along with Nelson Piquet Jr finished fourth.
Prior to linking the Enstone team at the beginning of the year, ricciardo, who ran Renault electricity, said the success was particularly deserved by the often-criticised engine operation of the manufacturer.
“Obviously I am happy for the entire team, but I wish to give a special shout out to the boys at Viry building the motors,” explained Ricciardo to Sky Sports F1’s Karun Chandhok.
“To find the best team outcome, here at Monza on a power circuit, because 2008 is a real announcement. They copped a lot of grief and they’ve made some profits this season. This one is for these.”
The large haul from Monza can also function to kickstart up what then had been an season. Renault have proceeded into fifth place in the Constructors’ Championship ahead of Toro Rosso and closed in fourth to within 18 points of McLaren.
“Since Canada we had not really got the most result out of it,” said Ricciardo, who ended a three-race run without points.
“I believe we had been a fourth-placed automobile now. Seb (Vettel) gave us a bit of a help, but after we were in fourth I certainly feel we had that pace.”
Asked if they can now maintain such a level of functionality, Ricciardo responded:”I actually wish we could and hope we can.
“We are coming around different circuits – high-downforce Singapore, road circuit, tough – but although this can be Monza and it is unique and you take all of the wing away, I definitely think there’s something we could still learn from this.”
Team manager Cyril Abiteboul described the weekend as”a protest following Montreal and Spa the very obvious improvement of the team and in particular on the power unit side that’s been so openly criticised previously”.
“It is a demonstration that all is so fluid with an aggressive package,” added the Frenchman. “It is also an invitation to replicate these types of feelings, if our life was far from a smooth ride up to now. Our drivers have shown what they can do with a competitive car.”
