Not enough constant running for Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo sung the same song as most of his colleagues after wrapping up Friday's free practice sessions, ruing the changing conditions.

As the day evolved according to the elements, teams found it difficult to run through the planned programs and enjoy consistency. Red Bull was no exception.

"It was nice just to get in the car and drive it. We did not get a whole lot of laps, but the laps we did I was pretty comfortable with just getting up to speed again," the smiling Aussie explained.

"We feel like we did not do enough constant running. Tomorrow will be a little bit of a mixed bag for everyone. But I think it is cool – the laps we did I was pretty happy with.

"The car is a decent place, so roll on tomorrow. And we will see where we end up. We probably will still have some unanswered questions tonight, but tomorrow we will answer them."

Despite the undesirable weather around Albert Park, Ricciardo believes its changing nature may just be a slight advantage for Red Bull.

"Anything that is a bit variable will suit us. So again it is a shame we did not get to do more laps today, but I am not too frustrated with the position we are in.

"At least it is the same for everyone and we will be able to adapt quick in changing conditions tomorrow. Or if it is dry we will hopefully find something a bit quicker than the others."
