Ricciardo doesn't want tough Turkish GP to ruin momentum

The Turkish Grand Prix wasn't one to remember for McLaren, but Daniel Ricciardo hopes that it won't bring the team down following their recent success.

Daniel Ricciardo hopes that McLaren won't let a difficult weekend at the Turkish Grand Prix affect their momentum.

The team had enjoyed some successful races prior to Istanbul, with the most notable being a 1-2 finish for Ricciardo and Lando Norris in Monza.

However, things looked very different in Turkey, with Ricciardo struggling to make up ground after starting from the back of the grid due to a Q1 exit and an engine penalty.

Ricciardo eventually finished the race in 13th, whilst Norris claimed P7. The Australian admits it was a "long afternoon" but remains hopeful that the team can learn from it and bounce back.

"I don't want to dismiss this weekend but, from a trajectory, I want to dismiss it," Ricciardo told select media including RacingNews365.com.

"I don't want it to get our spirits down. It's one of those weekends that wasn't good.

"I know we're going to debrief now, before we fly out of here, so hopefully we put a bit of information on the table and try to learn something. I don't want this weekend to affect our momentum.

"[It was] just one of those days, so as long as we can learn, we'll move on."

McLaren struggled in comparison to rivals Ferrari during the race; Carlos Sainz started alongside Ricciardo at the back but managed to make his way through the field at a faster rate. From there, things didn't get much easier for the 32-year-old.

"I saw Carlos kind of cut through the traffic, and we just couldn't," Ricciardo explained. "As soon as I got behind someone, I lost the front and then it started to get dead.

"So [we] pitted, thought we'd be quick with clear air on a new tyre, [but we] weren't really that quick. We went through a phase where it was mediocre, then it cleared, and I remember four good laps where I felt like I could really lean on the tyre.

"I started to smile under the helment, and then it fell away again. The last 10 laps were just very difficult, just the rear. I had a look at the end and you could see the canvas, so it's down to the core."

It's time for the latest episode of the RacingNews365 podcast, with F1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Thomas Maher and Mike Seymour discussing Lewis Hamilton's strategy drama and much, much more from the Turkish Grand Prix.
