Returning Monaco winner hopes for good result

22nd May 2019, 07:02 by Simon Barlow

Daniel Ricciardo believes Renault can get a good result at Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix, although it would be "a stretch" to win it.

The Australian has struggled since switching from Red Bull last year and has managed just one scoring finish in five grands prix with Renault, fourth overall at the end of last season, currently eighth in the constructors' standings.

But Monaco, where Ricciardo has achieved two of his three career pole positions, has been good to him in the past and he believes this weekend could provide another career highlight.

"I've done it before so it's familiar territory. I'm really curious actually to see how I perform this year in Monaco," Ricciardo, last year's winner from the front of the grid, told Reuters.

"The Red Bull was a great car but I always feel like Monaco is a track where, if you're comfortable with the circuit and the walls and all that and have the confidence, you can leapfrog maybe your car's position further up.

"We'll see how far up we can get. I think a win is a stretch. But I think we can get a good result. Maybe our best of the year. We'll see."
