In 2011, a young Australian made his debut in Formula 1. Halfway through 2011 Ricciardo got the chance to finish the season with the Spanish F1 team HRT, for which he made his debut at Silverstone. His second race was in Germany at the Nürburgring, where he finished nineteenth. Two years later he did better for Toro Rosso with a sixth place in qualifying and a twelfth place in the race.
Ricciardo ready for crazy race
''It has been seven years since I last visited the Eifel, but I still remember my sixth place in qualifying with Toro Rosso. That was an impressive result at the time. I am happy that we are going to race here again. There are some bends that are really fun to drive and with the current cars the Nürburgring will feel very different than in 2013," said Ricciardo according to Speedweek.com.
With the predicted weather conditions Ricciardo is expecting an interesting race in his Renault. ''If I have to believe the weather forecast it is wet and therefore very different compared to our previous races. It will be interesting how the car behaves and in the middle of October we can assume that the Grand Prix at the Nürburgring will be crazy. In any case, I am ready for it'', concludes Ricciardo.
