Ricciardo: There are things in Norris' data I can't do

Daniel Ricciardo has said that there are certain things showing up in Lando Norris' car data that he simply can't do.

McLaren's Daniel Ricciardo has explained that there are certain things that he sees in Lando Norris' telemetry data that the Australian is unable to replicate. Ricciardo was lapped by Norris during the Monaco Grand Prix, with the British driver scoring a podium in third place while Ricciardo came home outside the points. "After a weekend like this, I'm sure they will, let's say, do their due diligence and check everything," Ricciardo told select members of the media, including RacingNews365.com "On that, obviously, I'm gonna keep looking at it and see what things I can do better. But like, there's differences on the data. And it's like, well, this is why Lando is quicker in that corner. "And I see that but I'm not convinced I'm able to do that. So we'll see. Maybe it's still a bit of me getting used to the car, but I'm sure they'll check everything as well. Because, when I'm that far off, it's been tough." Asked what he meant by differences in the data, Ricciardo explained that it's down to things like being able to brake as late as Norris, or not being able to get the same type of rotation through a corner. "Yeah, pretty much just going through the corner like that," he said. "Maybe like brake as late or turn in like that. So we'll see. I'm obviously gonna keep working at it. But I feel this weekend has been so been so far off and so much on the backfoot, that part of me also just wants to switch off for a few days. And otherwise, it's like paralysis over analysis. And I've been there before and I don't want to go back to that."
