Ricciardo: Red Bull was 'tricky to drive'

Red Bull duo promise to leave 'few millimetres more'

"I didn't really know what to expect", he told reporters afterwards.

"I knew we were getting very close to getting restarted and suddenly he [Stroll] slowed down and with the cold tyres I couldn't avoid him anymore you know, sliding on the fronts. Friday's paint one picture but you're never sure what is going to happen", he claimed.

Ricciardo ended up over six tenths off the pace of the two Mercedes cars, putting him on the third row of the grid for tomorrow's race alongside team mate Max Verstappen.

"It's a little bit disheartening".

"Add together with my final lap I couldn't continue". "It wasn't our preferred tyre".

That's why I went for that tyre in the second part of Q3.

Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo were lambasted by their team last time out in Baku when they crashed while fighting over fourth place.

"The two one thousandths of a gap that's not nice either, but it is what it is", he agreed.

But while Max Verstappen might have claimed his first podium finish of the season in third, a disappointing performance in qualifying and a deficit of nearly half a minute to race victor Lewis Hamilton mean the Milton Keynes outfit are still some way off where they want to be. We talk about costs and being responsible but what has just been introduced is a completely new concept which will cost millions and millions of pounds.

When Verstappen was asked how he would approach Sunday's race, he said: "I will be even faster".

"Now from turn 1 to turn 4 it's flat-out with corners in it", he explained.

"And from turn 7 to turn 10 is also straight now because turn 9 is flat". "We don't have that power mode".

But whilst there was a lot to like from Red Bull, especially their long run pace, Verstappen thinks the team still have some more speed to find.

"I still don't know what the full story is to be honest", he said. So I hope from now onwards, it just goes in that direction, because I don't think I need to do anything different. I think Mercedes went on the soft? "At the end of the day, it has brought me to where I am so I can't really complain about that".

"I always feel quite good on this track and today has been a nice turning point after the first few races where it hasn't gone to plan", he said.

"So a lot of people will be choosing the Soft and the Medium".
