Game on - Q&A with Daniel Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo is fully focused on Silverstone for the British Grand Prix, as he eyes a return to the points.

Why is Silverstone special to you?
Silverstone will always be a special one for me, as it’s where I made my Formula 1 debut in 2011. I’ve always loved Silverstone, it’s a pretty epic track. It just has this nice flow to it, it’s all very high-speed and a great venue for Formula 1. You get a real buzz on every lap as there’s a lot of brave corners to get right. The British Grand Prix is a race I always get very excited about! The British fans are amongst the most passionate and that creates a really cool, electric atmosphere.

Away from the Formula 1, will you be watching the Cricket at all?
I’ll be keeping an eye on the Cricket World Cup throughout the week and weekend. Australia have been doing pretty well so far, so hopefully the boys can bring back some silverware on English soil!

How do you reflect on Austria, heading into the British Grand Prix weekend?
Obviously, Austria did not go to plan. We had been on a nice run of form before that and the aim is to get back to that in Silverstone. We’ll be putting in the hard work and I’m confident we’ll have a good weekend.
