F1: Daniel Ricciardo gives his early verdict after turning the first laps in the 2018 Red Bull RB14

Published

IT was only a short bit of running, and the track was very cold and wet, but Daniel Ricciardo has already noticed a key improvement in the 2018 Red Bull over its predecessor.

The team’s new RB14 became the first 2018-spec Formula 1 car to hit the track on Monday, the team taking advantage of one of its filming days to complete a shakedown of the new car amid a maximum of 100 kilometres of running.

Although Silverstone dawned wet for the car’s maiden laps, it wasn’t enough to dampen the good feelings Ricciardo was getting from his new machine.
