  • What to expect from the F1 2017 arms race

He told Sky F1: "I'm aware we probably don't have the package that we had previous year but I'm still excited to rag the hell out of that auto around streets, and remind people of my abilities".

At the Circuit de Catalunya it was the first lap smash-up derby triggered by Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas that all but gifted Ricciardo a third-place finish, albeit a long way behind the victor Lewis Hamilton and runner up Sebastian Vettel.

That victory marked the first of two for Red Bull a year ago, making them the only team other than Mercedes to win a race. "Last year was such a special race to me and in the end we managed to pull it off". "I think so far this weekend before qualifying we were still finding a bit of a balance with the new upgrades".

"After the first victory, you need the vehicle to keep performing".

"If we can close the gap already a little bit, that would be a good target".

"I think we made the right changes for qualifying, it was all working really well, the auto [has had the] best balance I've had all season so far".

Craig Slater looks ahead to this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix.

That will surely change, with the flow of upgrades set to speed up now that teams are closer to their factories, and Red Bull have some big chassis modifications in the pipeline with engine improvements still to come.

However, a more likely contender for a 2018 Ferrari seat is Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, even though he is under contract.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is leading the driver's standings, with Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas ahead of fourth-placed Kimi Raikkonen.

The Maranello squad has hit the ground running with its 2017 vehicle, winning two of the first four races.

"We will take what we can for now and keep working at it, try and stay positive and keep motivated".

"I think this will be an important race", said Vettel.

"We need to take into consideration what they do to be able to compete with them and continue our development". I think in qualifying we were pretty spot on, I think the vehicle was pretty much by the best we've had all season.

The Spaniard, who drives for struggling McLaren, is yet to finish a race this year, failing to even start last time out in Russian Federation.

He is the driver who obliterated Formula One's record books.
