Ricciardo: “Deep down I’m really disappointed”

F1+Grand+Prix+of+Malaysia+rZRQmwh5KskxToday at Malaysia Red Bull duo proved RB10 is the second dominant behind the Silver Arrows. The Australian speedy had been flying around the Sepang circuit with excellent reliability, but a terrible pit stop destroyed Ricciardo’s first point finish.

In fourth place as he came in for his third and final stop, Ricciardo drove away only to realise his front left wheel was not fully attached with engineers sprinting down the pit-lane to push him back and fix the issue.

The incident resulted in a 10 second stop-go penalty, before he eventually retired from the Malaysian race, while stewards also slapped him with a 10 place grid penalty for next weekend in Bahrain.

“Deep down I’m really disappointed but at the same time there’s a little bit in me which is happy because I think I’ve come out how I wanted to,” Ricciardo said in assessing his season so far.

“I still want to improve but we’ve started off on the right foot. So for that I’m pleased. I know a little bit of luck will turn around soon and I’ll get my revenge and get some points.”

An appeal rather than a change of fortune could bring points if a confident Red Bull is successful in contesting the Albert Park fuel decision in a Paris hearing on April 14.
