Daniel Ricciardo surprised Red Bull and many in the F1 paddock with his unexpected decision to switch to Renault next year.

Ricciardo said he wanted a change in scenery and routine after being associated with Red Bull for a decade.

“It was more just the routine, going to the same factory year after year. I felt it made my enjoyment for the sport a bit numb at times,” Ricciardo said.

However, he admitted severing ties with the company over the phone was not the right thing to do.

“I would have liked to have done it in person and face to face. A bit more like an adult man about it,” Ricciardo said.
