Pilot Red Bull Racing Daniel ricciardo commented on his first place following the results of Friday’s training in Mexico city.
“It’s always nice to finish the session in the first place,’ said Riccardo. – We are gradually getting closer to the leaders. We have made progress.
For long stretches we can go faster. If we talk about qualifying simulations, we also far from the top teams.
Mercedes always win on Saturdays. If we want to compete with them, the qualification needs a little to add.
I think that in the last races of the season the three best teams [Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull Racing] are close to each other.”
Max Verstappen showed the third time in the second training session, added: “I believe that our machines good pace. It’s a pity only that in the morning session I was not able to drive enough laps.
In the first session we tested some new parts for next year, but I soon decided to return to the actual details. Due to the fact that the car establish the various elements, I find it difficult to find the right balance.
The day could go better, but the car still has speed. Even though I was unhappy with the settings, we still finished third.
At the end of the exercise there was a malfunction in the engine, but it’s an old motor, so nothing bad happened.”
