Re: Ricciardo masterstroke

I'd be reluctant to diss Ric. He's had some awesome drives even with so many outings compromised by DNFs. You have to wonder why he had any faith in Renault. Horner was out of patience.

It was a gamble, not a masterstroke. But I don't think anyone expected 3 engine failures in 2 races.

In the Renault post-race notes, Cyril says: 'We must switch our focus to reliability'. What a blinding flash of inspiration. )) He was also on a hopeless strategy . . . but that was another gamble.

However, his biggest problem would appear to be that Hulk is just a bit quicker all round, all weekend.
