Daniel Ricciardo: “We will be very close” ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix
The second race weekend is upon us and later on this evening, we’ll be featuring the full report, including driver interviews, from Free Practice 1 and 2 which took place earlier today.
In the meantime, take a look at what Daniel Ricciardo had to say about the upcoming race this weekend – he sounds confident and if our Race Prediction for the Bahrain Grand Prix is anything to go by, it looks like he’ll have an overall decent weekend.
Daniel Ricciardo: “If we have the same car on Sunday, in Bahrain, that we had in Melbourne then I think it’ll be very close. It’s a different track, whatever, but if those circumstances are the same then we will be very close.”
“I don’t think we are going to have what Mercedes or Ferrari have in qualifying. You use everything, but their everything seems to be a bit more out there than our everything – in the race, we are just a little bit easier on the tyres.”
“In Qualifying, we need to find something – we don’t want to say it’s just the engine, we want to find more with the car but the car didn’t feel too bad in qualifying.”
“We ran out of front wing – ideally, we would have had more front end in the car but otherwise, there was probably not too much more that we would have changed.”
