Daniel Ricciardo will line up on the starting grid for Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix firmly in the belief that Red Bull owe him a victory on Formula One’s most famous streets.
All eyes are on Red Bull at the principality after Ricciardo cemented their status as the pre-race favourites by posting the fastest lap ever recorded in Monte Carlo en route to completing a practice double on Thursday.
Ricciardo, 28, is yet to open his winning account at his adopted home, but should have taken to the top step of the podium here two years ago.
The Australian was controlling the race before his pit crew botched his stop. He went in, Red Bull were not ready with his new tyres, and the ensuing delay allowed Lewis Hamilton to steal the victory. Naturally, the usually laid-back Ricciardo was seething.
