Ricciardo hails most refreshing double podium

Red Bull duo Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen made a double-podium finish in German Grand Prix and it’s lifted up Red Bull to second in the constructors’ championship.

A perfect start gifted P2 and P3 for Verstappen and Ricciardo, who were overtook pole-sitter Nico Rosberg into turn one, even as the Mercedes ace Rosberg was able to pass both Red Bull drivers in the pit stops, a five-second time penalty meant he dropped back before the final stint, leaving Ricciardo and Verstappen to clinch a double-podium finish.

“This is two weekends in a row now with a podium and one of the most refreshing things is seeing so many fans back in Germany,” Ricciardo said after the race.

“It’s obviously great to have the race back here after a year off. Thanks for all the support.

“Thanks to Red Bull Racing, I think it’s the first double podium for us in over a year, so it’s awesome to close out the first part of the season [like that].”

“It was really close in the first corner with myself and Max. He had a good run on the outside,” Ricciardo said.

“On the super-soft I was much more comfortable and we had good pace for the second half of the race.

“We really capitalized on a good day. We had a good car.

“Obviously we couldn’t win but second and third isn’t too bad, so thanks again.”
