Set to race with a Honda engine next season as his options are limited, Daniel Ricciardo says Red Bull haven’t made the swap just because “it’s gone to shit with Renault.”
Next season Red Bull will swap their Renault power units for Honda engines.
It is a move that has raised eyebrows given Honda’s poor performances during their time with McLaren.
Red Bull, though, are convinced that it is the only way forward and believe that Honda have already taken great strides forward with Toro Rosso this season.
As such it is, most likely, the engine that Ricciardo will be running next season after the Aussie admitted that his options are limited to Red Bull given that Mercedes are set to retain their drivers and Ferrari are considering Charles Leclerc.
