Ricciardo and Norris confident McLaren has more to offer

McLaren failed to impress during both practice sessions for the Austrian GP. Nevertheless Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris aren't worried about the team's prospects heading into qualifying.

Although McLaren duo Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris didn't impress on the Friday time sheets, both drivers are confident they have the pace to compete with their rivals in Austria.

The Australian finished both sessions in 12th, while the Briton followed up his 10th place showing in the morning with ninth in the afternoon. Ricciardo is confident McLaren can unlock some added pace with some fine tuning.

"It actually didn’t feel that bad, so I am a bit surprised with the classification," Ricciardo told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. "We’re just lacking a little bit. There’s nothing which feels out of place with the balance in the car; I assume it’s probably just a little bit everywhere.

“I know there’s not many corners here but maybe we're just missing half a tenth everywhere and then obviously it adds up to half a second or something, and maybe that’s what we need.

"I think it's just some fine tuning tonight, I don't think we need to reinvent the wheel. I think I definitely made a good step today, so it's just trying to then make another one tomorrow."

Norris unphased by FP2 slide

As for Norris, the Briton spun at Turn 2 during FP2 as drizzle began to fall. Despite the minor hiccup, he is confident McLaren will have a better day on Saturday.

“I will blame the conditions for my spin, although it had nothing to do with it,” Norris joked while speaking with RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. “But ya, it got a little bit trickier when it started spitting towards the end but it was more that I was at the end of my tyres or my tyres were getting older and I just made a little mistake.

“A good day, an interesting day for us as we tried quite a few different things. We maybe didn’t look great in terms of pace but we’re confident, or I want to say we’re confident, we can put it all together back for tomorrow, and have a better day."
