Ricciardo: The results of the weekend in Austin are better than they seem

In the previous stage, Daniel Ricciardo returned behind the wheel of an AlphaTauri car after a break of almost two months to recover from a left hand injury. Although he finished last and lost more than a lap to the race winner, there were no questions. about his physical condition.

Daniel Ricciardo: “Everything is fine with my hands, everything was fine in the car, although sometimes I experienced some not quite normal sensations while working on the track. However, I felt quite comfortable holding the wheel and steering. Fortunately, there is no problem with this.

To understand how I felt I obviously had to do everything possible, I knew that, but as the weekend progressed I quickly gained the necessary confidence. In general we can say that the results are better than it seems.

The actual result didn’t look good, but after the race we discovered what problems hindered us during the Grand Prix – they started after the first pit stop. But now we know for sure that the car is damaged, and that’s why we lost speed. Up until that point we had been more or less competitive, and the Austin stadium was a good place to get back into action there.

In Mexico we can fully count on reaching the qualifying finals and we will try to fight for the points. And although I cannot count on my 50th victory this weekend, unlike Max in Austin (laughs), we will do everything we can to show a good result.”
