For the pilot Red Bull Racing Daniel Riccardo Grand Prix of Russia-2017 ended on the fifth lap.
“The start was pretty good, but I was on the outer radius, which lost a lot of positions,’ said the Australian. – After the safety car I looked in the rear view mirror to assess the position of the machine Force India, and saw that I lit up the rear brake.
I immediately reported this to the team, after which I was ordered to get back to the pits. Unfortunately, they failed to recover, and I went. The team is investigating this issue.
It’s a shame to end the day this way – it ended too soon.”
His teammate at RBR Max Verstappen, who finished fifth, said: “Sochi Autodrom is a very important start. We have to admit that my only battle in the race happened right at the start.
I managed to overtake Daniel and Felipe [Massa], after which I rode the entire race alone. I took a break from cars, marching behind and the opponent ahead of he broke away from me. I was just trying to get to the finish line without incident.
I am grateful to the technicians who did a great job, correcting the issue with the car that occurred before the race. In addition, on the final leg of the car showed a good pace, which is encouraging.
Sochi has made the most of their opportunities and are now turning to the stage in Barcelona, where the team will bring updates”.
