Not the weekend I wanted at home. For all these things to happen at my home race - that's probably the most frustrating thing.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo has been quoted 26 times. The one recent article where Daniel Ricciardo has been quoted is Lack of Australian GP pace not down to 'trick' suspension removal. Most recently, Daniel Ricciardo was quoted as having said, “When I spoke to the team they have not really pinpointed something and said this is why we are struggling in this area or if we had that we would solve this problem, so it has not been apparent to me at the moment. If Ferrari were dominating and if Mercedes had dropped back a bit we could say yes we have lost a key component. But the fact that Mercedes is still quick, I probably would not put it down to that. It has not been talked about within the team.”.

Daniel Ricciardo quotes

The first race I ever went to Adelaide 1993. I was obviously still young but the noise is the first thing you remember. I remember going to Melbourne a few years later and from our hotel room you could hear the cars at Friday practice and I was like 'Dad, let's frickin' go to the track already, can you hear the noise?!' Noise was the first association with it and that [sound of] neooowwwwwnnnnn, moving the neck really fast.feedback

If you don't answer he's like 'what are you doing?' and you're there like '[starts pretend panting] 'I was training, I was training Dr Marko, honest! That was a sort of pressure. For me some phone calls weren't the best but at the same time it made me realise this is what it is, we are trying to get to the top of something and in any business or any sport it is similar. It was one of those things that made me grow up and mature, I think, and also made me appreciate what I had. When I didn't race well he made me realise that and I thought 'Ok, he's got a point, just make sure you learn.feedback

I took that one seriously! That was simple. Once the emotion came out of the equation the positive was I'd got the first pole position of my career in what we still believe was an inferior package. Albeit bar the pit stop, I'd done everything I could to win that race. I was good in the wet and did everything I could. OK, I didn't get the big trophy, but I was the driver to beat all weekend. I took a lot of pride in that. Also it's Monaco, it's a driver's track, I just tried to take the confidence with me.feedback

It's quite overwhelming actually, all the support. It's pretty cool to see so many people supporting me and the event itself. I hear ticket sales are up quite a bit from last year as well. It's not a weight on my shoulders. They want to see me do well and it's extra motivation for me. I think the drivers' parade on Sunday I will see it and that will get me jacked up for the race.feedback

I like racing and if it means just racing and no other stuff then I'm open to the idea [of extending the season], but it depends how they structure it. We've got some great circuits [in Australia]. Seb's saying Bathurst - that would be an amazing circuit for sure. Adelaide, I was very young but I heard that was amazing. Phillip Island host a great event for MotoGP. So there's a lot, but I feel a bit greedy asking for more.feedback

It helps having a competitive teammate, absolutely. You might think you're driving at your full potential and you think 'woah, hold on a minute, there is another tenth in that corner, or this and that. It is good to have that constant pressure and that good rivalry.feedback

Max is obviously talked about and is very popular and a lot of people expect him to win world titles and that so for me it's a good motivation for me to be like, let's stop this train'! Not in a sour way, but a good competitive way. I like having someone alongside me who is strong. Yeah it would be nice to win every race but you learn a lot more about yourself so I'm enjoying it.feedback

People have seen now I am a racer and I have big intentions in the sport and I am prepared to get my shoulders out if I need to.feedback

When I came into Red Bull, everyone thought: he's just the happy, nice guy, he's fast but he can't race hard with these top guys. That was a reputation I had to dismiss. If Lewis beats me in a Mercedes, I can tell the world he beat me because his car is better. But if Max beats me every race I am going to run out of excuses, so certainly your team-mate is the No1 person you want to beat.feedback

Just because they are fighting doesn't mean we shouldn't still try and make an overtake if there's a door open. I'll always race, I think, with respect but sure I'll race hard...if there's an opportunity to win, for sure I'll go for it.feedback

Some things we've seen in the past, Seb gets a bit frustrated but it's probably been a bit more uncharacteristic this year, probably been a bit too much.feedback

If the sparkling wine is cold, then it tastes good. Normally on the podium, it's cold so you don't get all the flavors but if it's warm, then you get the sweat and all that through it ... but the cold taste kills the bad stuff.feedback

The aim was to be in on the front row, we knew it would be tough to get in front of the Mercedes but it was nice to be in front of one of them.feedback
