Red Bull: status quo While world champion sebastian Vettel stole the air-time with his highly combatative (and verbal) joust with Fernando Alonso, it was again Daniel Ricciardo who emerged on top, nursing a set of Medium tyres for 37 laps to a single-stop podium result. unsurprisingly, the trademark smile was as wide as ever post-race: “I feel good! This is the best third place I've ever got. I'm not normally ecstatic with a third but I really am today, obviously to redeem myself from yesterday and also the fact that I don’t think we had an awesome race car today, but we made it work. We used the cards that we had and played the game well, so I was really happy to make a one-stop work. “For the last two laps, I saw jenson coming and thought I was probably going to be a bit vulnerable but we held on. “The one stop wasn’t planned. We pitted quite early on the Primes because we were quite slow and it wasn’t working, so we came in for the Option and, at one point, my engineer pretty much said ‘alright four laps to go on this tyre then let's box.’ I said the pace seems OK, the tyres aren’t getting any worse, so let’s try and stay out or at least think about keeping me out there, and he said ‘OK we’ll look at our options.’ “Then, a few laps later he said ‘do you think you can go to the end, there’s 15 or 20 laps to go?’ And I said, at the moment I think we can give it a crack. And so, yeah, we did and it paid off!” Two cars in the top five isn’t a bad result but, once more, the junior team member grabbed the result. 31 GPWEEK.com // 31 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> SILVERSTONE PARTNERS:
