Austria can 'catch you out' - Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo is looking forward to the challenge of the Austrian Grand Prix because the circuit "can catch you out".

Red Bull is likely to struggle on its home circuit due to the importance of power unit performance in Austria. Despite being largely uncompetitive at the track in 2014, Ricciardo says it's one he enjoys racing on.

"Not one of our strongest but good nonetheless," Ricciardo said of his impressions of the track. "It’s short, there aren’t a lot of corners – but the corners that there are good; there are a couple of proper quick turns and plenty to catch you out.

"It’s a fast track. You can have a good scrap as well. I finished the race in a really good tussle with The Hulk [Nico Hulkenberg]. Good stuff."

And Ricciardo says there are a number of unique corners which make the circuit tricky.

"Turn One is pretty cool as it climbs up the hill. It looks tight but actually it isn’t, it’s pretty quick, about third gear, and it opens up nicely. Turn Two is interesting as you climb a lot into what’s quite a tight right-hander, going uphill and off-camber.

"The second-last corner as well, that’s quick too. It’s quite flowing. There’s two tight corners but the rest are quick – third gear and up."
