Singapore GP will bring RB11 to life – Ricciardo


Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo expects the Singapore Grand Prix to bring his Red Bull RB11 “to life”, and expects the Red Bull to be threatening the Silver Arrows and Prancing Horses for the victory.

The Singapore Grand Prix bestows a unique challenge, after the never-ending long straights of Monza, Singapore’s Marina Bay street circuit lacks straights and has plenty of slow speed traction and downforce critical corners. The Singapore GP has always played to the strenghts of the Red Bull in the past, a Red Bull has been on the podium on every Singapore Grand Prix occasion since 2010, including winning in 2011,2012 and 2013.

The teams horsepower deficit is near eliminated, not too many straights and the best car at Singapore is all about the downforce, balance and traction out of low speed corners. Red Bull’s aerodynamic strength is set to make the RB11 stand out at the Marina Bay Street Circuit, as the team hope for their best performance of the season, possibly returning to the top step of the podium for the first time since the 2014 Belgian Grand Prix.

The Australian has benefited for the new start procedures which took place at the Belgian Grand Prix, at Spa the Australian got off to a great start to end up third at the first corner. Ricciardo is hopeful a good start could good-do his charge at Singapore.

“I don’t want to get too excited, but we can all go in there with some confidence,” said.

“I think the car has got better and better in the last few races, and Singapore will bring our car to life.

“Hopefully we can challenge Ferrari for a podium.”
