  • Ricciardo 'genuinely thought' Red Bull had chance to win

But then with the safety vehicle came out and we switched to the softs and they never "switched on" as we say.

"We worked on the vehicle and every little detail to optimise it and it seemed to improve".

"It cost us a few quid today, several thousand pounds and a lot of down time", Red Bull team boss Christian Horner told Sky Sports F1.

Both Tilbrook-built cars got the jump over Ferrari's ailing Kimi Raikkonen at the start to run fourth and fifth, chasing down Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes who was sluggish off the line. "I was on Massa's pace and we know we're quicker than that, so that was a odd change of events from the beginning of the race".

But Hamilton ran a little wide at the final corner and could not beat Verstappen despite showing good pace in the first two sectors.

"China we were 1.3 off, I was 1.3 off pole, and here we are less than eight tenths off, so it is about half a second turnaround, and for what we don't know", Ricciardo said.

"We stopped Daniel under the safety vehicle but lost some time behind Lewis as he deliberately slowed in the pit lane for which he was later penalized". I had understeer and that was basically it for me. But that's how it is. Everybody dreams about a three-header race... I think we should be closer.

"When you look at like a Mercedes or a Ferrari, we could just say 'okay, they're able to get their tyres working more because they've got more downforce and they're able to generate more (energy) through the tyre, '" Ricciardo said. Something just overheated too quickly.

Q: Was today an indication that you are more on top of the vehicle than in the first two races?

"The vehicle was performing a lot better and we did the undercut on the two Mercedes so could have taken second place". Ferrari and Mercedes can turn up their engine in qualifying more than we can - unfortunately - but in the race we usually look a bit more competitive than in qualifying.

Speaking after the race, the Australian driver said he was pleased that incremental work on the vehicle was paying dividends, and he hoped for a positive race tomorrow.
