World Series by Renault 2013

The runner-up to Valtteri Bottas in the 2008 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 and second again in the 2010 Formula Renault 3.5 Series, this time to Mikhail Aleshin, Daniel Ricciardo is now very much a member of the Formula One fraternity. This weekend, however, he makes his return to World Series by Renault at Motorland Aragon, taking a seat in the F1 world championship-winning Red Bull Racing RB8.

World Series by Renault fans know all about the talent of Daniel Ricciardo, who made his WSR debut in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 back in 2007. Driving for SG Formula in his first full season the following year, he took second place overall behind Valtteri Bottas, now a fellow member of the F1 field.

After appearing at just one meeting in 2009, he returned for another complete campaign one year later, this time for Tech 1 Racing in Formula Renault 3.5 Series, finishing runner-up again, behind Mikhail Aleshin.

The Australian began the 2011 season with ISR before earning his first F1 drive with HRT. In 2012 he made the switch to Scuderia Toro Rosso, for whom he has so far collected 16 championship points.

At Motorland Aragon this weekend he will be taking control of the car Infiniti Red Bull Racing lined up with last season. Equipped with a Renault RS27 engine, the RB8 has scored seven wins, eight poles and seven fastest laps in 20 Grands Prix.
