Daniel Ricciardo: No one wanted to be first on the road

Daniel Ricciardo had a great qualifying session at the Italian Grand Prix and will be hoping for an equally strong race tomorrow. The Renault driver explained what happened at the end of Q3 from his point of view and will hope that the stewards don't penalize anyone. 

“It was a great qualifying for the team," Ricciardo said. "Locking out the third row, we executed everything well today, and the result is a good reward for that. I had a good Q3 lap, and we’ve been a solid top six all weekend. Just like in Spa, we’ve been strong since the summer break and that’s pleasing.

"No one wanted to be first on the road at the end, everyone was side by side. It was a consequence of no one wanting to give their tow to everyone else. Still, fifth on the grid is really solid.”

Ricciardo will be pleased to be racing near the front again and will hope to convert the strong qualifying performance into some championship points.
