Had a lot of different situations, but I was sure that I will be able to quickly break forward.This morning I told Helmut that before the end of the first round to become the seventh. It took, however, a couple of laps, but I was the seventh, and it looked good. I think it was the sixth round, when the turbine is beginning to sound very strange. A little later I lost power. I was able to limp to the pits, but the race to this end.Perhaps, the height above sea level and the temperature did the trick. Today, many engines just couldn't stand it. I wish we didn't get more fines for the replacement of engine parts. But here to change anything".

I won last year in Malaysia, although it is not thought that our car suits this track, but the problem Lewis has opened the door to victory. I was able to beat max in the last laps to the last could not believe that I won.The settings for this route always involve a compromise because you need a good car on each sector. If you select settings with high downforce, you'll be quick in the middle sector, but will lose everything on the long straights, and Vice versa. Then you need a special approach".

All this will allow us to fight for a possible victory. To be a leader on the results of the tests are nice, but this does not mean that further we will not be able to fight for the same results.

Last year we customized each other, and the longer we are teammates, the more we achieve. Max is fast, but it sums up the technique. As for me, I just have to do less mistakes."In the last seven races Verstappen went five times. Riccardo during this time, five times off his shoes under the prize champagne.

There is a very wide section, and there are the narrow sections in the racing calendar.The second sector is most severe, there is heavier than in Monaco, although the Principality is one of the most narrow and difficult roads. When you drive up to the old town, sped by the castle, is a fun and difficult at the same time, and here you can see the audience in the stands This part of the track is my favorite. Long video is just huge, and it allows you to really relax".

It was just greatI'm happy with my results. Today was the circles when I enjoyed the car, but they were circles when I was very much afraid of the track. For example, after the restart, the tires were cold, and pilot was simply impossible. I hooked the wall, but the car survived. I was very fortunate to achieve the podium, slipped to third place".

He is now in a very good position, it is clear that SEB is confident.We all know Vettel. When he revels in his victories, when he was confident in the car, then stop it very difficult. That's how he won before he had great confidence in the car, the comfort in the team. Let's see how he will prove himself this year".Riccardo himself, is rumored to be in talks with Ferrari.

The team should pay more attention to the speed, as in the third sector we were one of the slowest.The situation in the head of the peloton remained the same the Ferrari and Mercedes fight ahead of us. We need to continue our work, otherwise we fall back even further".

I feel that we are still trying to find a solution to their problems. The deficit of the power plant is very strongly felt.Looking at the backlog, you might think that he is greater than 0.3 seconds, and I would definitely put money on it. However, in order to reduce the gap at least 0.3 seconds, we should equally well work on power plant and chassis. But even reducing the gap to 0.3 seconds from the leaders is not the result we seek".
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo on the results practices Grand Prix of Russia showed 6-th result.Riccardo Daniel "Today we had positive moments, and negative. I'm very happy with the car on the tires Supersoft, but we are unable to obtain normal returns from rubber Ul, as the other teams. This still needs some work. Balance with the Supersoft was good, so if tomorrow we can get the same out of Ul, then in the race we are looking at a good result as in qualifying.We can definitely make progress by tomorrow, but I should also say that the team is still lagging behind Mercedes and Ferrari, so I don't think the picture will change a lot to the race.

I think that Fernando is just not enough good fight in the leading group, but then again, if he was not able to fight at the top, then the race for him would be long and tedious.Actually, I would have chosen a different race - the Daytona 500. The kind of Indie that really scares me But it's great that he decided to do this. He picked a great time to decide on such a step.This is an opportunity for him, and he can do it against a good team. This decision underscores his frustration with his position in Formula 1".

I did everything I could, but still ended up in the barrier.I'm sorry, and I apologize to the team.
