Home boy Daniel Ricciardo admits qualifying was a frustrating session for him but expecting Red Bull’s different strategy can bring him into play tomorrow race following his grid penalty.

The Australian also hints that, grid penalty was unjust for him especially at home ground, and suggesting reprimands or fines are affordable.

Riccardo will drop from P5 to P8 because of the penalty he picked up in practice on Friday for speeding in red flag conditions.

“I thought [the grid penalty] was unjust. A penalty sure, there are reprimands, fines, other things but to shoot me in the ankle before the season has started – I thought they could have done better. Ricciardo told Skysports, following the session.

“From fifth we go to eighth. The first parts of qualifying were OK but at the end we missed a few tenths. It looked like it was all in the first sector.

“I don’t really know with the balance what more I could have done there. For sure it was frustrating a little bit.

“We’re starting on the supersofts and hopefully that works to our favour and later in the race we can make some things happen.”
