Daniel Ricciardo is ready for more as he heads to Suzuka for this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix on the back of his first victory of the season in Malaysia last weekend.

The Red Bull Racing star believes the old-fashioned nature of the Suzuka circuit makes it a tough proposition for a driver, but admits to liking the track, and is bidding to extend his advantage over fourth place in the championship standings this weekend, which currently stands at forty-four points.

Ricciardo is also looking forward to experiencing the culture of Japan once more on which will be his sixth Japanese Grand Prix, but will be hoping to secure his first trip to the podium there this year.

“Japan I have always loved, it’s tough for a driver, a proper racer’s circuit,” said Ricciardo. “The first section you have to connect all the dots because all the corners flow really nicely if you get it right.

“I love the food and people in Japan. I’m going to spend some days in Tokyo between the races and hopefully see a lot more of the city, try some more authentic food and experience a bit of the culture.”
