Yuki was comfortable with the car and didn't put together a good lap after opting to go for 1 run. It's only sprint qualifying and he was faster in every session up until that point. We all know P15 isn't representative of where he and the car should be.

At least now he doesn't have the pressure to score points for the team in the sprint and Ricciardo can do his part and try to earn some points.
" It's only sprint qualifying and he was faster in every session up until that point. "

<---- So every session before this matters but sprint qualifying does not matter? Yep makes sense! Also there was only Practise 1 before sprint qualy. Practise 1 had. Lec 20th Alo 19th Norris in 16th Perez 6th. And yes its clearly a lot more representative of where these drivers should be👍. They should definitely use Practise 1 for the starting grid in the future and not qualifying sprint/qualifying results. And yes bring in the sprinklers for Sunday's race as well :)

Agree. Yuki hopefully will do much better in the Saturday Qualifying session.

Ricciardo hasn't scored points yet people already talking as if Yuki is beat. Ricciardo seems to forget he has a 3 place grid penalty and won't be starting from the 2nd row.

Don't worry about it.
I was incorrect in thinking Daniel has to serve the penalty in the sprint, which he does not have to. This works out great for points scoring chances.

And yes, it is still only the sprint race.

Tsunoda vs Ricciardo Qualifing results in 2024:

🇧🇭 P11 vs P14
🇸🇦 P9 vs P14
🇦🇺 P8 vs P18
🇯🇵 P10 vs P11

🏎️ (New chassis for Daniel Ricciado)

🇨🇳 P19 vs P14 (sprint quali)
🇨🇳 P19 vs P12 (race quali)
🇺🇸 P15 vs P4 (sprint quali)
Yep it seems that there was something here, and also it probably boost moral.

Let’s see this very long season, RIC will score points.

If I were RBR I’ll wait a long time before signing again Perez or doing something at RB

Season is still very young

Get in there Dan! =D> 4th place wow! How in the world did he manage to keep Sainz behind all race without any DRS pretty much. Fantastic 5pts for the team. Well done to Yuki as well who gets a point. Great start for the team to the weekend!

Mekies on F1TV said they are running more downforce than others so they are slow on straights...
I believe this extra downforce allows them to get back on power earlier and brake late which makes up for the lack of straightine speed.
The cheapest sort of pride is national pride, every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud adopts, as a last resource, pride in the nation to which he belongs; thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.

both drivers only had one set of new mediums left. Ricciardo used it for the sprint, which was logical given the starting spot and tomorrow's penalty, but I guess it made sense to save it for the race with Yuki.

So new softs or used mediums was the only choice, and they probably didn't see much of a chance to score points from P15 anyway.
