It truly is not the news that you want to hear when you’;re making an attempt to celebrate. Sunday night I guess I had a bit of time to consider, and Monday as effectively I had a few cameras in my encounter at the airport. They allow me know about it. So I could not really escape it for about 24 hours, but soon after that I was house. I was staying occupied and not contemplating about it too significantly more. In any case, I undoubtedly took far more positives out of the result and that weekend than negative.
“I try and keep relaxed and laid back about it all. I did the race, I did what I felt was the greatest I could, and then all the controversy afterwards it was not actually my fight, not my place to be concerned in any far more that was for the staff to get in excess of with. I was proud with what I did, I did the occupation that I felt I could have and should have carried out. The rest was out of my control.

He also feels that he’;s proved a stage. “For me personally, now I have proved that I can race up the front. I just have to attempt to proceed to preserve going. I certainly don’;t want to be a 1-hit wonder. Whether or not we get the factors back or not, there’;s still a great deal of races to go, and hopefully the factors will accumulate to a great place by the end of the season. There is still a good deal going on for me, and I’;ll attempt and maintain as several factors as I can this weekend – and hopefully maintain them.”
Ricciardo explained that the saga had acquired him a lot of sympathy back property in Australia.
“I got a great deal of assistance following it, a great deal of sympathy I guess. I probably gained a few fans, really. For let’;s say an Australian fan, I guess they’;d waited so a lot of many years to see an Aussie on the podium, and they’;d lastly completed it at residence. It was like a enormous celebration for everybody, and then somebody took it off them. Naturally they weren’;t satisfied with the outcome, of course, as not many of us had been. I come to feel the same way they do.”
