Daniel Ricciardo says he will carry over the intensity from his Monaco Grand Prix performance when he gets back in the car in Canada this weekend.
Red Bull was quick in Monaco and Ricciardo secured the first pole position of his F1 career with a stunning lap. Having led the first part of the race, a pit stop error from Red Bull cost Ricciardo a chance of victory and left him downbeat following the race.
Having taken some time off, Ricciardo says he is focused on continuing his own strong form at this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix, the scene of his first F1 victory.
“Highs of last weekend was the qualifying, the low … probably don’t need to explain that!” Ricciardo said. “But definitely enough of that, moving on to Montreal, I’m hanging out for that. It’s a track I’ve obviously enjoyed a lot in the past.
“I’m just looking forward to getting back in the car. The feeling after Monaco was at the time I just wanted to get out and have some time off, which I have done. Now that I’ve sort of got over Monaco I just want to get back in the car and basically smash it and get amongst it.
“I’m going to get there fresh, recharged and you’re going to see the same intensity that you saw in Monaco and I plan on keeping that up and not letting anything else get in the way.”
Following his second place in Monaco, Ricciardo heads to Canada in third place in the drivers’ championship, 40 points behind leader Nico Rosberg.
