Despite a difficult opening day at Sochi, Daniel Ricciardo is optimistic about the rest of the weekend.

Why it matters: The Australian had an older power unit installed for FP2 after facing an issue early on.


  • Ricciardo thinks that he will recover from all Friday’s problems.
  • The McLaren driver admits that a lot of circumstances have affected his day.

What he had to say:

  • “I’m confident things will be sorted for sure.”
  • “A pretty unstable Friday but I guess the glass half full [approach is that it’s] better today than Saturday or Sunday, so hopefully that’s done and dusted now.”
  • “But there’s no denying it, it obviously affected our day, and when we did get out there, there’s yellows, there’s reds and we’re trying to do a lap and people are on high fuels, so it was definitely messy. It disrupted really all of FP2…”
