Daniel Ricciardo

Ricciardo doesn’t like Ocon’s attitude

Published

on

Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo felt he was held up by Force India driver Esteban Ocon during the practice, the Australian saying: “He is always in the way. Always.

“I don’t like his attitude. It is only practice, but I may have to finally have a word to him.”

Ricciardo, who claimed his second career win at the Hungaroring in 2014, dominated in Friday’s both practice session but saw his and Red Bull’s advantage vanish on Saturday as title contenders Ferrari and Mercedes stepped up. The Red Bull driver settle for an underwhelming sixth on the grid in Hungary.

Responding to Ricciardo’s comments, Ocon smiled and said: “He can come up (and talk to me), but he was on a slow lap and it’s only practice so people have to calm down.

“He was on a slow lap. I was doing my thing, he was doing his thing — I’m not impeding anyone.”

When asked if he planned to discuss the incident with Ricciardo, Ocon replied: “No issues.”

When the media asked if he was now trapped with the latest set-up for the race, Ricciardo replied: “”The fundamentals we are stuck with. We can help it out a little bit with front wing and some tyre pressures or how we set the blankets. We are stuck with the main stuff, so we will have to manage it probably a little bit tomorrow, but I am not worried.

“If we can get track position then we can help ourselves. We will be alright, it will be a fun race. I am not convinced that I will have many friends afterwards! But that is okay.”
