GP Week : Issue 199
While the Mercs were stealing the race, Daniel Ricciardo was, again, emphasizing that he is goung to be no push-over number two to anyone, successfully recovering from his ‘penalty-included’ grid 13 start to catch and pass his world champion Red Bull team-mate en route to a strong fourth place – which with another lap could have been third. After closing in in Vettel and dealing with the champ's 'firm' resistance for a while, Ricciardo got on the radio and calmy asked: " We're losing time like this – we have to decide what to do ..." Shortly thereafter came the radio message, to Vettel, that Australians have longed to hear: " Sebastian, let Daniel go through please. Daniel is quicker than you. Let him by please." Vettel, for his part, remained as aggressive as ever and, apparently hindered by car issues that cost some top speed, took sixth-place points. “We got close to the podium today, I think within half a second, so I was doing all I could,” reported Ricciardo. “The car came to me as the race went on and I was happy with how I moved up through the pack, so a good day. It was good fun to race Sebastian, it was hard but fair and we left each other room. That’s what we want from each other and we discussed it beforehand, we’re racers and that’s what we enjoy doing.” For his part, Vettel was relatively philosophical: “Daniel proved that there was a little bit more to get from the car today, I couldn’t really get to that bit, so I’m not so happy with my day. For some reason we seemed to be really slow on the straights, and not just against the Mercedes. “It was straight-forward with Daniel today, we worked well together as a team and we raced well, but surely I would like to have finished higher up.” "Sebastian, Daniel is quicker than you" 29 GPWEEK.com // 29 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> BAHRAIN PARTNERS:
