Pilot Red Bull Daniel Ricardo believes that in the season 2017, the Austrian team will be able to impose struggle Mercedes, which dominated F1 for the past three years.
RBR was able to return to the cohort of top teams after a difficult campaign in 2015: in 2016, the team Christian Horner scored victories in Spain and Malaysia.
“I think we can fight them, Yes,’ said the Australian in an interview with the official F1 website. – If we manage to achieve the progress we have achieved in the past year, then Hamilton will be very difficult in 2017, believe me.”
Riccardo also commented on the situation with the retirement of world champion in 2016, Nico Rosberg, with whom he regularly flew to a particular GP.
“At first I was surprised – continued Daniel. But then I tried to put myself in his place, looking at the situation from a different angle.
Now he has a family, and he was involved in sports before he started to chase, because his father was a famous cake. We can say that he has behind him a long career.
All of these flights and commitments seriously tiring. Finally he came to the point when I realized that it’s time to relax from it all. Friend, I understand.”
