Daniel Ricciardo

Ricciardo turns the frustration “into a bit of aggro”

Home boy Daniel Ricciardo was downcast following a costly mistake led to a crash in the final session of qualifying Saturday to forced out him down the grid for the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

Ricciardo said he felt for the mechanics who would have to do plenty of work on the car to get it ready for the main race, when he will start 10th on the grid, but said he would turn the frustration “into a bit of aggro”.

Red Bull duo was undoubtedly struggling to match the top teams – Mercedes, Ferrari and pushing to get every thinkable nanosecond out of his car.

“I’m physically okay, but emotionally it’s tough. At least (the crash) didn’t happen in Q1,” Ricciardo told reporters.

“I lost in going into Turn 14. It happened quickly, I could feel rear was starting to come around.

“Each time I get in the car, I am still trying to learn it, the new beast — I am still positive about them. I think they are fun, I think they are good.” Ricciardo added.

“As a team, we obviously still want to find some pace to throw at Mercedes, but my job tomorrow is get up from 10th and try and finish the race and understand a bit more, find ourselves fighting around the top five.”

Ricciardo has won four races from 109 GPs, but he said earlier in the week that a win in Australia would top them all.
