Ricciardo explains what convinced him to swap Renault for McLaren

Daniel Ricciardo scored points in his first race for McLaren, a welcome start for the team as they look to build on their strong 2020 F1 campaign. The Australian explained that the Woking team's march up the grid in recent years is what lured him away from Renault.

Daniel Ricciardo has revealed that the promise shown by McLaren as they look to return to the front of the grid is what ultimately convinced him to leave Renault and join the team.

Although the Woking team haven't won a race since 2012, they look to have gotten things back in order after a tough time during the mid 2010s. McLaren finished last season third in the constructors' standings, a substantial jump forward since finishing ninth in 2017.

Having gone through a dark period, Ricciardo revealed to Formula1.com that the team's return to form and promise is what convinced him to leave Renault after just two seasons with the French outfit.

"When I signed the contract, it was really just the step they made in 2019," Ricciardo stated. "I think they kind of turned heads in the whole paddock and it felt like they've gone through those few darker years of trying to sort themselves out to rebuild the team.

"And it felt like in 2019 they really put everything together. It was like okay, they've laid everything out all the all the pieces together, it's now just building and executing for the next few years.

"Obviousl, I signed at the beginning of 2020, but during 2020 they showed you a further step. I just think they had the most promise out of the rest. I like what I saw and felt like, yeah, everyone feels pretty comfortable at McLaren.

"When I say comfortable, don't mistake that for complacent. We're ready to get on with it."
