Ricciardo admits won’t like being ‘outperformed’ by Red Bull teammate Vettel this year

Sydney, May 6: Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo has admitted that he would not like it he is outperformed by his teammate Sebastian Vettel this year as Red Bull prepare to rebound from a season of controversy at this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix.

Ricciardo sits sixth on the drivers’ championship ladder, but could well have been third if not for his disqualification at the Australian Grand Prix and pit problems in Malaysia.

According to News.com.au, the Australian said that deep down, neither he nor Vettel likes losing, adding that although he would not like it if Vettel does a better job this year, however, he would definitely respect him for it and give him the credit he deserves.

Ricciardo further said that he believes giving and taking respect is a two-way street, adding that they understand what a fair fight is and both enjoy that. (ANI)
