Daniel Ricciardo launched into an expletive-laden rant on team
radio after failing to score in the São Paulo Grand Prix Sprint.
The Australian was in fine form during the 24-lap event, stalking
Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz for the final points-paying position at
Interlagos. Ricciardo twice made impressive moves around the
outside of Turn 1 in his AlphaTauri, only to lose out to the
Spaniard on the run to Turn 4 as the Ferrari picked up DRS in
return. Clearly unimpressed by the positioning of the DRS detection
line on the exit of Turn 2, Ricciardo said on team radio: “F**k,
F**k, F**k, F**k. Sorry guys. “Just that f***ing DRS in Turn 2. You
pass in [Turn] 1 and then you just get f***ed. It is impossible.
“Anyway, I’ll shut up.” ‘I never get rewarded’ Addressing the issue
in conversation with Sky Sports F1 , Ricciardo explained: “I
completed a move on him [Sainz] at least twice, maybe more than
twice, but the DRS [detection] line, is in Turn 2. “So every time I
passed him in Turn 1, I was basically waving him back past before
Turn 4, so that was extremely frustrating but i dodn’t really feel
like I could do much more. “You’re trying to pass someone so you go
for it, but I never got rewarded.”
