Daniel Ricciardo: “The last few races haven’t been kind to us”

Daniel Ricciardo admitted his disappointment to leave Silverstone without scoring points after arriving with optimism of a better weekend following difficult trips to Canada and Austria.

The Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver revealed that he was forced to retire before the rain came at Silverstone with an electrical problem, which the team were unable to solve.

“I was really optimistic and excited for this weekend but it didn’t work out for us on the day,” said Ricciardo.

“We suffered an electrical problem which forced us to retire. I could feel the loss of power going into turn 7, we tried circulating for a few laps to try and fix it, we also tried to reboot the engine in the pits but unfortunately it didn’t work.

“The last few races haven’t been kind to us but that’s racing. We have some time off to look forward to and we’ll go into Hungary a little more hopeful as the track there should suit us better.”
