Daniel Ricciardo has made his maiden appearance as a Renault Formula 1 driver ahead of his first season with the team in 2019.

Ricciardo stunned the F1 world last summer by deciding to quit Red Bull after five seasons to join Renault's growing factory programme, signing a two-year deal with the French manufacturer.

Ricciardo's final race with Red Bull came in Abu Dhabi at the end of November, but the Australian has now linked up with Renault ahead of the new campaign, with its official car launch taking place next week.

Renault teased a social media campaign for #HoneyBadgerDay - after Ricciardo's nickname - on Monday morning before releasing the first photos of Ricciardo in team kit and a race suit alongside teammate Nico Hulkenberg.

Ricciardo will make his on-track debut for Renault in pre-season testing, taking place later this month in Barcelona, before his first race for the team in Australia on March 17.
