After the race, Ricciardo said the anti-stall system had triggered as he tried to pull away.

“We got into anti-stall on the start, which hasn’t happened before; we have to look and see what happened,” said Ricciardo.

“It’s frustrating, that shaped the race and in the traffic we struggled to get by.

“We underachieved today, but hopefully we find something in the next few days and have a better result in Bahrain.”

Dany exited the Chinese Grand Prix with a power unit issue. Kvyat will also be hoping for a better time in Bahrain after what he described as ‘not an easy situation’ when his car failed to last beyond 16 laps in China.

“This weekend has been a bit tricky, and not the happy ending we would have liked,” said the 20-year-old Russian. “I saw a lot of smoke coming from the rear of my car, I am not sure what happened but the team are investigating.

“It’s not an easy situation, but we have to stay strong, I am with the team and we will all work on it together, and we’ll keep our heads high heading into Bahrain.”
