We are fairly satisfied – Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo, who has made fourth place in the opening two races, finished fifth fastest in second practice session, says that they are fairly satisfied with lap times and pleased with RB12 balance.

DANIEL RICCIARDO
First Practice Session: Position: 4, Best Time: 1:39.061, Laps: 13
Second Practice Session: Position: 5, Best Time: 1:38.143, Laps: 31

“Looking at the lap times we are fairly satisfied but I think there is still more to come in terms of balance. If we find what we’re after, we’ll be a lot closer to where we want to be. I think most guys were struggling for balance because we seem to be relatively competitive.

“But the car was a bit of a handful today and I think it was like that for everyone. We saw quite a few guys spin this morning, maybe the wind was having quite a big effect as well. The long runs at the end with the Soft tyre were promising and the pace didn’t look too bad. If it rains tomorrow it should give us a bit more of a chance. I’d say top 5 would be achievable for us.”

First Practice Session: Position: 6, Best Time: 1:39.625, Laps: 14
Second Practice Session: Position: 13, Best Time: 1:39.178, Laps: 31

“Tyres work in an unusual way here so we need to understand how to make them work for tomorrow, that’s our target. It wasn’t too bad, but I didn’t have a single clean lap to be honest.

“I struggled on the Super Soft, it just didn’t work for me and we have quite a bit of work to do to get ready for qualifying. The weather forecast for tomorrow is rain which will change things up again, we’ll have to wait and see what the afternoon brings.”
