Daniel Ricciardo says that his targets in 2013 F1 season will have to be more ambitious and also he is aiming podium finish in next season, its hints he clearly eyeing Red Bull race seat for 2014.
Last season he took ten drivers championship points, 6 points less than his team-mate Jan-Eric Vergne. Also he claims that Toro Rosso has entirely changed the design of their car for 2013 following struggling with it during this season.
“I’m aware of that, and I know that my targets in 2013 will have to be more ambitious,” he told Autosprint.
“I won’t hide and I say that I must and can obtain a podium. I will push to the maximum to make it.”
“My Achilles heel is that this year, in the first part of the season, I wasn’t aggressive enough in the races. In some aspects I was the opposite of [Romain] Grosjean.”
“Now, however, I think I’ve found the right balance in showing my capabilities.”
“I can tell you I’ve already seen it and, when looking at it closely, it’s very different from the old one,” he explained.
“I think it will be better than the one I’ve raced with this year. In any case, it won’t be one of those cars that looks the perfect copy – barely evolved – of the one that raced the previous year.”
