“We are making progress, but unfortunately Mercedes don’t seem to be slowing down either, so they are a little bit far away,” Ricciardo told reporters after the second session at Barcelona.
“A little bit frustrated, Surprised, I don’t know, as they have been so strong already. I hoped we would probably close the gap a bit more – today was too far. He added.
“We are trying to pull them back, but we seem to be in a solid third place today.
“It would be nice to fight for a win soon, but for now it seems that thirds are – at least today – the best we can do.”
