Can't believe we don't have a thread for the Honey Badger. The most likeable driver on the grid bar none. Go get 'em Danny Ric!

:x I already had a topic prepared 2-3 times for him, but I didn't want anyone to think that I'm in love with him or something, hehehe :x

 

No, but honestly. What an absolute fantastic guy.

People seem to forget that Hülkenberg was once called "The next Schumacher". He had a lot of bad luck, and difficulties to get into a top team because of his height/weight back in the day. Still always managed to get decent results, and a Williams on pole in Brazil in 2010.

This season could be Hulkenberg's big chance really. If he matches or beats Ricciardo his stock will rise significantly again. I still think he's probably just past the age where he's likely to be on the radar of the top teams.

Three place grid penalty for Ricciardo in Barcelona!

 

This Renault move definitely isn't working out well for him...

No kidding - and it sucks as after I watched the show, he looks so quick, dangerous, and like an elite driver. But now the sport is dominated by Mercedes and it's only Max that is looking good and not part of the Mercedes team.

I just don't get why'd he go to Renault... Seats are obviously limited in F1 and he was offered a lot of money while he would have had to play the second fiddle to Max at RB. But seriously, Renault? A team that can't build a proper chassis and struggles with reliability with their PU as well? I mean Ricciardo had 8 DNFs and a few free practice issues driving a Renault PU powered car last season himself. Not saying all of them were Renault fault but it's been obvious for quite a while that their PUs have reliability issues. Add a poor chassis to that and you've got a disappointing car which is frustrating to drive...

And that's what a driver of his caliber with his determination didn't want. Obviously he was aiming for a Ferrari or Mercedes seat, and when those options vanished, he didn't have many others to choose from. Still, Renault are a big brand, and there's always hope that they'll finally get their shit together.

I like Ricciardo but he did have his head up his own arse for over a year. He kept going on about options like Ferrari or Merc was a dead cert. Obviously you have to have faith in your own ability, or maybe he was trying to play RB hand at the time. I felt he went on with hinself a bit, as good a guy as he is.

Even if Renault somehow get their shit together, they still won't be a title challenging team any time soon. Not sure what it brings to Ricciardo apart of money. In Red Bull he would at least have had a decent car and could showcase his skills for an eventual move to Ferrari or Mercedes in the near future. Not sure he's going to impress anyone driving a shitty Renault and he's not getting any younger either.

Daniel Ricciardo is facing a claim of more than £10m in alleged unpaid earnings from his former manager.

Glenn Beavis has filed a lawsuit in the High Court in London claiming that Ricciardo has not paid him commissions owed on his new contract with Renault.

Ricciardo left Red Bull at the end of last season to join the French team.

Ricciardo's lawyer, Jeremy Courtenay-Stamp of Ebury Partnership, said there was "no merit" in the claim and added: "We are going to defend it fully."

Legal documents lodged by Beavis' lawyer at the High Court and seen by BBC Sport make a claim for "in excess of £10m" for "various sums due in accordance with the commission agreed between the parties".

Ricciardo's salary and bonuses included within his two-year contract are listed in the court documents but have been redacted from those publicly available via the High Court website.

But the details of the claim suggest the 30-year-old Australian's Renault salary is more than £20m.

The first defendant is Whitedunes International Holdings Limited, a British Virgin Islands company wholly owned by Ricciardo, who is the second defendant.

Beavis' claim is that he had an agreement with Ricciardo that saw him earn "20% commission on the value of all new deals (he) introduced and which were subsequently concluded".

He claims he started negotiations on Ricciardo's behalf with Renault Sport managing director Cyril Abiteboul in mid-2017, which continued into 2018 before heads of agreement were agreed on 2 August 2018.

Beavis' lawsuit says Ricciardo told him on 15 December 2018 that he wanted to terminate their agreement but it was agreed that Beavis continue because "there were various outstanding matters to be dealt with first, including negotiating the long form of the Renault driver contracts".

Beavis' claim says he continued working with Ricciardo, with Whitedunes' permission, until 31 March and that the long-form contract was concluded on 7 March, a week before the first race of this season.

"The position of the defendants… is that the claimant has no entitlement to the commission or to any other form or amount of commission in relation to the Renault contract," reads the lawsuit.

Ricciardo's lawyer has not yet filed his defence and says he has until the end of July to do so.

Courtenay-Stamp said: "I can confirm that Ebury Partnership and I act for Daniel Ricciardo in relation to this claim and Daniel's position is very clear - there is no merit whatsoever in relation to this claim and we are going to defend it absolutely fully.

"You'll have only seen his claim so far. You won't have seen our defence because it hasn't been filed. But it will be filed and it will entirely refute the claim that Beavis is making."

A spokesperson for Renault said: "This is a private matter between Daniel and a third party and therefore it is not our place to comment."

If the reported numbers are right it would mean that Ricciardo is on a £50m contract at Renault? :o Would explain why he went to an inferior midfield team...
