Daniel Ricciardo has defended the bumpy Austin circuit.

Multiple F1 drivers have railed against the bumps this weekend. Lewis Hamilton said he had to lie down with a severe headache on Friday, and Max Verstappen said he was worried about the health of his back.

Sergio Perez called it "unacceptable" and "dangerous" for a Formula 1 circuit.

But Renault's Ricciardo is not so dramatic.

"Ok, some sections are pretty uncomfortable, but for me that's part of the character of a race track," he said.

"Personally, I prefer bumps over perfectly smooth. This is not a video game.

"Everyone knows when they come here that it's going to be rough, and I have no problem with that.

"For me, many of the new circuits are too perfect. And no one can tell me that we can't race here. So far, I haven't seen any cars fall apart."
