Ricciardo mentioned he was “compromised” in qualifying.
“In the end the final run we had a difficulty within the storage, so we could not get out,” Ricciardo instructed Formula 1 TV.
“We lastly did get out but it surely was with, I believe, a two-second margin to the flag. So we needed to push on the outlap and could not do tyre prep.
“Disgrace as a result of, I do know it is solely Q1, however we had been in a strong spot that and I believe we might have had a greater day with a little bit higher fortune.”
