Red Bull's drivers excited before the start
The tests are completed and teams with more or less excitement are waiting the start of the new Formula 1 season. One of the teams whose optimism before the race in Australia this weekend surely is Red Bull, and in particular driver Daniel Ricciardo who will try to get good result in front of the home crowd.
“I love going home and the fresh air really gives me that home feeling. I spent so much time away from Australia that any where in Oz feels like home really. It’s the cars, the accent, the food and the weather. The whole Melbourne vibe and atmosphere is just amazing. It’s busy and there is always something going on. The track is fun and I always liked street circuits, especially when it is fast flowing. Testing has been relatively good for us. We had few reliability issues, but we racked up a lot of miles and learned a lot. I still feel that we have a bit more to go. There is no better place to do this than going racing and I am ready”, said Ricciardo.
Daniil Kvyat in Melborune will have a debut in Red Bull. Young Russian now have more experience than in his rookie season and he hopes that will be seen on track.
“There is always something special about the race in Australia. This will be my second race in Melbourne and I took a lot of great memories from the race last year. It’s an interesting and flowing track, challenging one. Last year I finished it with a points and became youngest ever-scores, so it was very special moment for me. I hope that I can repeat the same, even the testing wasn’t the smoothest, but it was productive. Compared to last year, we are definitely on another level. I am sure that tjere will be tight competition in Australia and we will do our best”, said Kvyat.
