Ricciardo elaborates on McLaren struggles

McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo explains why he has so far struggled to adapt to the McLaren MCL35M.

Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo opens up about the areas he needs to improve on and how he can better adapt himself to the McLaren MCL35M.

Much was expected of Ricciardo as he made his much-anticipated debut for McLaren. Unfortunately the affable Australian has so far struggled to set the race tracks alight and while his teammate Lando Norris currently sits third in the driver standings, the seven-time Grand Prix winner lies seventh having scored less than half the points total of his British teammate.

"I mean, to be honest, it's locking brakes and sometimes it's losing the rear," Ricciardo told RacingNews365.com among other members of the media.

"I think probably there's a period in the kind of entry phase where the car is on a knife edge and I feel like there's probably a set-up solution where I can just open that, and not be on such a knife's edge, because it is really sensitive.

"I think Lando (Norris) is certainly able to, let's say drive around that better than me at the moment. And probably to fast track my learning, I can just try something with the set-up that opens up a window and it's probably with suspension or something like that."

Ricciardo also illustrated how he has been working with the team to find the ideal set-up and how the process should yield fruit during the upcoming Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.

"I think definitely after Bahrain and Imola I had a clear direction for the team as far as updates and feedback to error like okay, this is where we need to improve the current looking forward," Ricciardo stated.

"I still wasn't sure what I want currently in the car and how I want to set up the car and you know, kind of not try not to go too far away from Lando because obviously he's he's on top of it and driving well, but I think today I learned a few things that maybe I can start to, let's say set it up to suit me and see how that goes in Barcelona."

Ricciardo is also confident that the familiarity of Barcelona will help him jumpstart his season as he looks to bridge the gap to his teammate and more crucially help McLaren cement third place in the constructor's standings.

"It's probably the first time in a while a bit excited to go to Barcelona," Ricciardo explained.

'I love the city but obviously the track we drive there so often so having some familiarity and driving a circuit with pretty good grip and you know, you run high downforce it should be one where I can really push on the car and let's say not have too many odd things going on or let's say excuses of any sort."
