Abiteboul blames himself for losing Ricciardo

Cyril Abiteboul says he blames himself for losing Daniel Ricciardo to McLaren for 2021. At the Nurburgring, the Renault-Ricciardo combination finally finished on the podium, meaning team boss Abiteboul now needs to honour a light-hearted commitment to the Australian driver to get his first tattoo. “It’s a wonderful feeling,” Frenchman Abiteboul told L’Equipe when asked about the third place finish in Germany. And although Ricciardo is now brainstorming tattoo ideas for his current boss, Abiteboul himself admits that amid the ‘wonderful feeling’ is also sadness. Renault, to become Alpine in 2021, is replacing Ricciardo with former two-time team champion Fernando Alonso.
