Ricciardo confident of race wins

Aussie feels potential in Red Bull machine

Daniel Ricciardo feels that Red Bull have the potential to challenge for race victories in 2016.

When Formula 1 dropped V8 engines in favour of 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 units in 2014, Red Bull and their engine supplier, Renault, did not adjust as well as expected.

The formerly dominant Swiss team managed three victories in 2014 but failed to claim a single win last season.

Ricciardo, having led the Chinese Grand Prix before a puncture ended his hopes of winning in Shanghai, is optimistic for the remainder of the current campaign.

"It's really promising, for sure," the Australian told Sky Sports F1.

“Three races in, every weekend we’ve shown strength at some point. It’s been a strength we didn’t think we would have at this point of the year.

“It definitely feels more like 2014, where we had potential.”

Following three successive fourth-placed results, Ricciardo is third in the Drivers' Championship on 36 points.
