Australian Grand Prix: Why rivals should not write off Daniel Ricciardo

Published

on

FLYING under the radar usually isn’t a concern for local hero Daniel Ricciardo ahead of the Australian Grand Prix.

But the Red Bull star feels he has to remind everyone of his presence in Sunday’s Formula One season opener in Melbourne.

Off-contract Ricciardo — 29 in July — is considered a title threat this year with Red Bull’s new car RB14 expected to join Ferrari and threaten Mercedes’ domination in 2018.

Crowd favourite Ricciardo still felt he needed to make people sit up and take notice at Albert Park after the emergence of 20-year-old teammate Max Verstappen and talk Valtteri Bottas will challenge all conquering Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton this season.

Fabio Quartararo produced a thrilling ride to claim a resounding victory at the Catalunya MotoGP on Sunday, his third of the season which sends him top of the world championship standings.

Joan Mir, on a Suzuki, came through to take second and is now eight points behind Quartararo in the standings, while Alex Rins completed the podium.

The race began in dramatic fashion with Andrea Dovizioso, who led the title race by a single point from Frenchman Quartararo and Maverick Vinales, was taken out in the opening lap after tangling with Johann Zarcho.

Quartararo, on a Yamaha, won the opening two races of the season but has struggled since then, failing to reach the podium in the last five races.

Daniel Ricciardo is a man of his word.

On Sunday at the Russian Grand Prix, he told his team he’d make up for a basic error that threatened his top-five finish.

Not only did he then put his foot down to hold onto fifth, but he did so with ease, more than ten seconds clear of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in sixth.

The result carried on a strong run of performances for the Australian who had finished fourth, sixth and fourth in the three previous races.
