Daniel Ricciardo has said he is aiming for a top-five finish in the British Grand Prix tomorrow.
The Australian has been on a run of good form so far this weekend, with a strong finish in the sprint qualifying to top it off. Tomorrow is where the proper points are paid out though, and Ricciardo is confident he can bring his McLaren home in the top five, despite acknowledging it will be a tough task.
“From what I understand, I think Charles was a little quicker and I saw that Carlos got put out and came through the field, so I would say we’ve still got a little bit of work to do if we want to get in the Ferrari fight,” he said.
“But I think we were decent relative to the others and started seventh today, start sixth tomorrow, so it’s a little victory and yes, I’ll try and aim for a top-five tomorrow. Apparently, I haven’t got one this year, top five, so I think sixth is my best result. That’s kind of sad. I’ll try and break through the top five.”
McLaren will be happy if they extend their lead over Ferrari in the constructor’s title tomorrow.
