Aston Martin Red Bull F1 team driver’s Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen revealed their helmet, which they will be wearing for the season opener in Melbourne for Australian Grand Prix.

Ricciardo says he wants to be on the podium as soon as the very first race of 2018. After the early struggle of last season, the team changed tack for 2018 and will now be among the very first teams to launch their new contender next week.

“Last year we realised already at the winter tests that we were behind Mercedes and Ferrari,” Australian Ricciardo told Speed Week.

“This year we want to be in good shape from the beginning. We want to be on the podium in the first race.”

“We are working hard with the aerodynamics and if our calculations are correct, then we will be in good shape in Melbourne and fighting for a place in the top three.”

Verstappen is not ruling out taking a shot at the world championship in 2018. Many are predicting a revival of the Mercedes-Ferrari duel this year, but Red Bull is notably bullish.

“I want the title as fast as possible. Red Bull can be champion with a slightly weaker engine, which they have already shown four times.”
