Ricciardo 'envious' of Hamilton-Vettel scrap

Ricciardo 'envious' of Hamilton-Vettel scrap

Red Bull has struggled relative to Mercedes and Ferrari so far this season having failed to take advantage of the new aerodynamic regulations, with Daniel Ricciardo qualifying fifth in Russian Federation but over 1.7s adrift of pole position. "I hope we can be a bit closer to the top teams or that we can at least follow them". I think the vehicle was in a balance, from entry to mid and mid to exit of the corner, where we were sometimes struggling in one certain phase I think now we are all around a much more stable balance and you can push a lot more, I think it showed today.

Hopefully closer but I don't think we can expect to come out and win.

Sunday's race, however, could give them the chance to hit the reset button.

The Red Bull Racing team.

The Finn, fresh from his first grand prix victory with champions Mercedes in Russian Federation, is the man most likely to become the 11th different victor in a row at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya.

Despite this, he does recognise that the team has taken a step forward, even if they remain behind both Scuderia Ferrari and Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team.

After the opening four rounds of the new season, the former world champions already trail Ferrari and Mercedes by nearly 90 points.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is leading the driver's standings, with Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas ahead of fourth-placed Kimi Raikkonen. Both Ferrari and Mercedes will have been hard at work, each trying to gain a crucial edge over the other that could tip the balance in the so far closely-fought title battle in their favour. "I'm not signing other people's contract, so it's not my decision", said Vettel. "The auto was the best I've had all season so I am very happy".

"We need to take into consideration what they do to be able to compete with them and continue our development". Fernando Alonso will be wishing he had the same belief in his team's ability heading into his home race.

"As always at this time of the year, it's big aero stuff".

Verstappen, who claimed the team's only podium of 2017 so far in China, is also keeping his expectations for the one-year anniversary of his stunning maiden win in check.
