Ricciardo ‘frustrated’ after pit wall miscommunication

Daniel Ricciardo qualified fourth for the Monaco Grand Prix but felt he should have been ahead of the Ferrari of his former team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

The Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver bemoaned a miscommunication from the pit wall that he felt cost him the couple of tenths of a second that would have put him ahead of Vettel. Despite this he feels a podium finish during the race is possible, which would be his first of the season.

“I’m a bit frustrated because I think we should be P3,” reflected Ricciardo. “There was a miscommunication from the pit wall starting the last lap and it’s a missed opportunity for us.

“At Monaco, every grid position counts, but we’re in a good place to attack and we’ll go all out to try for a podium finish in tomorrow’s race.

“I always enjoy this track and having to fight the car over the kerbs; I’ll try to have a bit of fun tomorrow.”
