Ricciardo is looking forward to the heat: 'The weather was too cold for me!'

According to Daniel Ricciardo, the first weekend in Bahrain will be quite a challenge. The Renault driver says it will be tough, as two of the three practice sessions will be held during the day and qualifying and the race in the evening.

Rather hot than cold

Ricciardo says he is not a fan of the cold weather. " I know we’ve been to some awesome tracks across Europe recently and whilst they’ve all been fun for various reasons, the weather has been too cold for me," he says in a Renault press release.

"I much prefer the heat and it’s still pretty warm in Bahrain during the evening, which is great," said the Australian. According to Ricciardo, the biggest challenge lies in the fact that two of the three practice sessions are done during the day.

Finding the right set-up

"Two of the three practice sessions are during the day when it’s really hot and both qualifying and the race are in the evening when the circuit is a lot cooler. This does make preparing for this race a challenge and adapting to different set-ups is important," Ricciardo concludes.
