Daniel Ricciardo Determined to Win

The talented Formula One racing driver Daniel Ricciardo is determined to win his first world championship now.

Although he only debuted on the F1 grid this year, he finished third in the world championship standings. Young as he is, he has become one of the most fast-rising racers in the sports for his excellent performance in the field, winning three races despite of the fact that the Mercedes’s racers driving in a much more powerful car compete against him.

The 25-year-old Australian said he considered himself to be a title contender now.

He said: “I definitely think I can. It’s a long season and a lot comes into play, but I definitely believe if I got the opportunity and the equipment behind me, then I can do it.

“I proved this year I’m a race winner and can race hard at the front and deal with the pressure.”

Though the affable and promising F1 racer is confident, Red Bull team is not so sure about the results of the next season.

Red Bull team chief Chris Horner said: “We are not writing off next year but, for sure, there is a gap there. And, from what we hear, the performance gains that Mercedes are bringing next year, it is going to be a massive challenge to reduce that.”

Also, he added: “Renault can make an inroad but I think it would be unlikely to match this year’s [Mercedes] engine.

“I think we can get closer to it, but Mercedes are not going to stand still and Ferrari are in a similar situation. It is very tough when the engines are frozen at the end of February.”

Moreover, concerns mounted that Mercedes could even widen the gap between the other teams next year, with the improvements made in its energy recovery systems and exhaust areas of the car.

Nevertheless, the Australian driver appeared to be optimistic about the upcoming competition in Australia next March.

Speaking of the race at Albert Park, he said: “Looking back, what happened on Sunday night here, if anything, just fuelled a bigger fire which was already in me.

“It served me well for the rest of the season. It gave me a taste and then took it away, so it made me want to get back there.

“I’m already hanging out for March – try and get a little bit of redemption.”

Besides, he made it clear that he didn’t think public expectation in him would be a burden.

“It honestly doesn’t change the way I feel or my approach,” he said. “I’m aware there will always be a bit more hype.

“If anything, at the home race, it’s a little bit easier to stay motivated - more or less the whole home crowd is behind me. It’s not more difficult.”
