Daniel Ricciardo has put together an impressive performance at the British Grand Prix to record the best ever for McLaren, in a promising sign that he has finally managed to win the prize. solve his stability problems at the new team.

The Australian finished sixth after the first F1 Sprint to score his first top-five finish of the season, behind teammate Lando Norris in fifth.

The two continued that battle for more than half the race, with Sainz always in the rearview mirror, just a second behind Aussie in the final 20 laps.

However, unlike at the Austrian Grand Prix two weeks ago, Ricciardo stood his ground and didn’t let the Spaniard pass, to claim his best ever McLaren finish.

“Happy with my first top 5 of the year,” said Ricciardo. “It took a while, better late than never. Yes, happy with that.

“When I saw Carlos come in for the second game, he caught me too quickly.

“I was obviously ready for the fight and defense but the speed with which he caught me, I think maybe – if I was a bettor or if I watched from the outside, I guess he was favorite betting (pass).

“But I definitely supported myself and I wouldn’t go out without a fight.

“I think really pushing back on defense has allowed me to be a little bit more confined and a little more comfortable with the car at the edge.

“I actually learned a little bit more from that so we’ll move on.

“I definitely need to have a few (good results) in a row. I need to be consistent now to have a little more faith in saying it.

“I want to say that and I feel better but there is definitely still some time on the table where I need to find and feel comfortable with the car.

“But overall, a good weekend. Well let’s go.”
