Daniel Ricciardo will look to continue his strong form when the 2020 Formula One World Championship heads to Turkey for Round 14 at the Intercity Istanbul Park circuit on Sunday 15 November.


The Renault driver has racked up seven successive top-10 finishes, including two third-place results at the Eifel Grand Prix and Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in recent weeks.

This sees Ricciardo sitting in an impressive fourth place in the drivers' standings, occupying the 'best of the rest' slot behind the dominant trio of Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen.


However, the Australian is only 10 points ahead of nearest chaser Charles Leclerc of Ferrari and needs to keep up his consistency, starting with a trip to the Intercity Istanbul Park, which should give Ricciardo plenty of opportunities to show off his overtaking skills.

“They’re [podium finishes] all pretty good, for sure,” Ricciardo said of the result at Imola. “I’m also not going to take this for granted. It’s the second in three races but I’m excited as I was in Nurburgring."


He is also hoping to lead Renault to third place in the manufacturers' championship: “Obviously it’s great that we got big points with one car but I think if we’re going to keep our noses in front then for sure we need both cars in the points."
