Ricciardo: That wasn't a strong race by any means

The McLaren driver qualified just ahead of his teammate for the Bahrain Grand Prix. Unfortunately for the Aussie, he wasn't able to capitalize on that grid position, admitting that he struggled throughout Sunday's race.

Daniel Ricciardo has been describing his disappointment at his performance during Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix.

The 31-year-old finished 7th, one place lower than his qualifying position of 6th, on a day where issues for Sergio Perez presented opportunities for both McLaren drivers to finish higher.

Lando Norris did just that, snatching a deserved fourth, but the Australian driver claims that he struggled during the race to make progress.

"I think for the weekend as a whole, I feel pretty satisfied," Ricciardo told Sky Sports F1.

"For the race itself, I struggled with pace. I wouldn't say it was a strong race any means, there's plenty to work on and learn from. So I think yeah, I'm definitely not discouraged, there's just still work to do.

"As the race went on, I felt like I was just falling back and back - struggling to push on the tire and actually then keep it. So I'm sure there's still some finessing that I can do with the car to learn properly what sweet spot I'm after in the setup."

The Honeybadger was driving in his first race for McLaren since joining the team from Renault over the winter.

His teammate, Lando Norris, was consistently outperforming Ricciardo in prior practice sessions, but he insists that his performance level is only going to improve the more he drives the car.

"There are still things to learn, but I'm certainly much closer to where I need to be. So yeah, it's just gonna take time, even the power, you know, trying to just figure out the throttle settings and all that," Ricciardo concludes.
