Ricciardo races to ‘boring’ P4

Daniel Ricciardo raced to his fifth P4 of this championship in Sunday’s British GP and declared it a “boring” race.

The Aussie started the 52-lap grand prix from fourth place on a wet grid and was fourth when he took the chequered flag later in the dry.

Ricciardo saw very few of his rivals during the race, finishing 18 seconds behind his team-mate Max Verstappen and 43 in front of Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen.

In fact his only noteable battle of the day was against Sergio Perez but even that was an easy pass.

“Hard fought? Not really,” he said of his grand prix. “I thought that was boring.

“We just got a bit unlucky with the Virtual Safety Car and lost the gap to the leaders, so it put me in a race by myself.

“Perez was in front for a little bit but we knew once we cleared him it was just trying to hope something happened up front or whatever.

“I’m definitely over these fourth places.

“Unfortunately there was really just not much happening the race. We just got unlucky with the Virtual Safety Car, it came at the wrong time and we lost more than ten seconds there.”
