Ricciardo reveals why his driving style does not suit his McLaren

The Australian has opened up on his driving technique which is not yielding the same results as his teammate Lando Norris.

Daniel Ricciardo has revealed that he is struggling under braking in his McLaren which is the area he is losing most of his lap time compared to teammate Lando Norris.

Ricciardo has had a surprisingly poor season, often someway off the pace of Norris and is yet to string together a consistent set of results. The seven-time F1 Grand Prix winner says he also found things difficult at Renault but his McLaren issues are different.

"Right from the start I had the feeling that I could keep my old driving style and just have to get used to the fact that the Renault has a little less grip than the Red Bull," Ricciardo told Auto Motor Und Sport.

"In comparison between the Renault and the McLaren, the differences in the car bigger. The McLaren has its strengths and weaknesses. But somehow my natural driving style doesn't seem to harmonise with it.

"Either how I turn into corners on the brakes or how I step on the throttle. The car doesn't react as I am used to. That's why my move to McLaren is a bit more challenging than the one to Renault.

"As a first step, I tried to understand why my driving style didn't work in all corners. In the second I tried to acquire new techniques.

"This process is complicated by the fact that there are turns where I can follow my instincts as always, and others, I have to think beforehand about how I have to drive to fully exploit the strengths of the McLaren."

Ricciardo has scored 64 points less than Norris and has also explained what his strengths are when driving the car and the way he usually gets the most out of his F1 machinery.

"I would have to show you the data and explain where the subtleties lie," said Ricciardo. "The team would probably not be so happy if I gave too many details.

"Roughly speaking, I have a very high minimum speed in a corner when I can drive the way I want. To do this, I have to throw the car into the turn and trust it to stick to the road. Sounds simple, but it's not."
