Ninth in the 2019 championship for drivers is not enough for any race-winning Grand Prix driver, and you can be assured that Daniel Ricciardo will not be satisfied with that result.
That said, not a great deal more was on offer.
Renault continues its rebuilding process and the Perth driver is a big part of that, but he understands there is much to do.
There is a lot more speed needed to challenge for fourth in the constructors’ title this year, but a feisty fourth place at Monza last year - particularly after starting from fifth on the grid - suggests the team is on the right track.
It will need to be. There are zero questions about Ricciardo’s quality and with much of the grid out of contract at the end of this season, Renault will need a solid year if he is to remain in yellow and black in 2021.
