The Australian driver makes clear after the rash followed at the GP of Mexico, concluded with a withdrawal
Daniel Ricciardo returns on his steps after the hot statements followed at the GP of Mexico, in which he had speculated, after the teenth withdrawal, to renounce the last two GP leaving the place to his successor Gasly. Difficult words dictated by a huge frustration, on which the Red Bull rider is back:
I would like to reassure everyone: I will run the last two races!
That is what he explained in the last couple of days.
Highs and lows, said Riccardo, who will go to Renault next year.:
This season we have lower highs that unfortunately made me say something tough and I admit that for me it was very frustrating. But I will be there, if only because I owe it to those who work day and night for me, as a form of greeting and respect. I needed some rest, now everything is much better
The Red Bull Racing team principal looks to the future and he has high expectations for the 2019:
The progress of Honda and the arrival of Pierre Gasly could give Red Bull the right push to return to fight for the world championship.
Christian Horner looks with optimism at 2019 and at the time when Milton Keynes will rely on the engines of the Japanese house, after the divorce from Red Bull. The improvements brought by Honda in 2018 to the Toro Rosso satellite team of Red Bull is a good news:
We have a great team, a big car, big pilots, although Daniel will leave us at the end of the station, we will have Gasly, which is booming. And if we can get that little bit of power we need to move closer to Mercedes and Ferrari, then we could give it a twist
Expectations also the French rider, who this year has managed to snatch fourth place in Bahrain, confirms the high expectations:
The scenario is very promising. We have a great opportunity ahead of us. Next year we will be able to fight for the first places. Surely there is a need for time and it will not be easy, but slowly we will approach the Mercedes and Ferrari
