‘Hungry’ Daniel Ricciardo expects more podiums to arrive as Red Bull hunt Mercedes

Daniel Ricciardo believes a return to the podium won’t be too long in coming for him after his Australian GP disqualification with the Red Bull driver confident the World Champions are poised to start making “bigger strides” with the RB10.

Although Ricciardo’s exclusion from the results of his home race means what was the 24-year-old’s first F1 career podium finish has been wiped from the record books as things stand pending the outcome of Red Bull’s forthcoming appeal, he insists he “won’t forget in a hurry” the “very surreal” experience of standing on the rostrum.

And in any case, with Red Bull themselves admitting the performance of their car in Melbourne proved a surprise after a troubled-filled winter, Ricciardo is expecting to get more chances to make the top three over the forthcoming races as the World Champions start to properly unlock the car’s absolute competitiveness.
