F1 2014 runner-up Red Bull Racing successively completed all three pre-season tests without any major trouble. The Milton Keynes based squad now fully prepared for season opening Grand Prix at Australia on next weekend.

Daniel Ricciardo is also thrilled for his home race, but he little-bit worried about new machine’s reliability issues. Last year he has been excluded from the Australian GP following breaching fuel consumption rules.

“I love going home and the fresh air really gives me that home feeling. I spend so much time now away from Australia that anywhere in Oz feels like home really. It’s the cars, the accent, the food and the weather. The whole [Melbourne] vibe and atmosphere is just amazing. It’s busy and there is always something going on. The track is fun. I’ve always liked street circuits. I think it’s a great and fast flowing circuit. Ricciardo speaking to Red Bull Racing, who hold the lead role in the team.

“Testing has been relatively good for us. We had a few reliability issues but we racked up a lot of miles and learned a lot. I still feel that we have a bit more to go. But there is no better place to do this than going racing. I’m ready to go.” He added

Daniil Kvyat – “There is always something special about the race in Australia. It’s my second race in Melbourne and I took a lot of great memories from the race last year. It’s a beautiful place. Good weather, good food and great atmosphere. It’s an interesting flowing track. It’s challenging and there is always something special about it.

“[Last year] was my first Formula One race and it all felt like a dream, because I didn’t know what to expect. It’s a memory that will never go away. I finished my first race in the points and became youngest-ever scorer, so it was very special for me.

“We did our best in the testing. I wouldn’t say it was the smoothest, but it was productive. Compared to last year we were definitely on another level. I’m sure that there will be very tight competition in Australia. We’ll do our best.” (Red Bull Racing – Press)
