Ricciardo on the biggest difference between McLaren, Renault and Red Bull

Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo says the brakes are the biggest difference between adjusting between a McLaren, Renault, and Red Bull.

Australian F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo has said adapting to the brakes is the biggest challenge between switching from a Renault to driving a McLaren.

The preseason test was largely positive for both Ricciardo and McLaren. The Australian driver topped two out of the three sessions he took part in and McLaren marked themselves out as one of the front runners in F1's tight midfield battle. Ricciardo however, says that he still needs to adapt to the car especially with respect to the way the brakes function.

"Going from Red Bull to Renault and Renault to McLaren, probably the braking is the biggest thing which it seems like you need to adapt," Ricciardo told RacingNews365.com among others.

"It (the braking) is certainly different again so I am still probably adapting or adjusting to that,"

"That’s one where I’m still trying to get on top of it and understand where the limit is, of the car.

"With the braking it’s more probably just a mechanical feeling. I think even things like new cars, new pedals and positioning, it’s probably more just a feel on that physically than anything else for now.

But I think generally in the past couple of years it looks like they’ve had a pretty good car on braking."

Ricciardo also joked about his title of F1's last of the late brakers moniker, saying that once he familiarises himself with the new system, he should be able to pull off some overtakes.

"I think that once I’m up to speed [it] should be a pretty good one and hopefully [you’ll] see some good passes from me again, some late ones," Ricciardo joked.

Ricciardo also believes that the aerodynamic changes have affected the handling of the 2021 F1 cars.

"I have seen a few more cars sliding, for sure," Ricciardo explained.

"I’m not sure they’re quite there with the rear grip yet. So I think most people are probably still suffering some losses with the floor change."

As touched on earlier, Ricciardo has had an extremely encouraging start to his 2021 Formula 1 campaign. The amiable Australian will looking to add to the two podiums he attained last season.
