Published

Daniel Ricciardo managed to finish P5 in the Spanish Grand Prix, He had a spin at the restart following the Virtual Safety Car which put him well back from the top four. The Australian admitted that the Red Bull was “tricky to drive”.

“It was just a bit tricky to drive. It was fast when you were able to put it all together but easy to make mistakes. It was a bit on a knife-edge. Ricciardo said

“If you got lucky, you could put in a blistering lap but probably 1 out of 5 I could make it happen and the other four laps I was sliding and struggling to stay on.

“At the beginning of the race it felt like we were hanging on. It seemed Kimi wasn’t particularly quick and Max and myself had more pace. But I came out of the pits and there were three cars fighting and that cost me a bit of time. And on the VSC restart I had a spin which put me in no-man’s land.

“Monaco should be our strongest circuit to date on raw pace but we’ll see.”
