What was he going to fight?Daniel saw the writing on the wall (that Max was the preferred driver) and chose to leave rather than stay and fight.
Red Bull are a far stronger team (with more upside). They are a good chance to get another Grand Prix win this weekend, their 3rd of the season and 7th podium.
Renault will be lucky to still be in F1 after 2021...
No matter Daniel's results at Red Bull, the young golden haired, European boy Verstappen was always going to be preferred. Same with Vettel over Webber ( I think Ricciardo is a much better driver than Webber ever was)
