Daniel Ricciardo: 'Red Bull have a chance in Malaysia'

Red Bull can challenge for the race win in Malaysia, according to Daniel Ricciardo.

Daniel Ricciardo has insisted that his Red Bull team have a chance of winning the Malaysian Grand Prix if the race is affected by rain.

The Australian qualified fifth for the race in Sepang with Sebastian Vettel on the front row of the grid, as the constructors' champions prospered in changeable conditions.

He told reporters: "I was a bit off in Q3, so I've got to try and understand why, but nonetheless I think top five is not too bad, considering the conditions. I think we've definitely got a better chance in the wet.

"Mercedes were really quick this morning in the dry, so it would be good if it's like this tomorrow."

Ricciardo finished second at the Australian Grand Prix a fortnight ago before being disqualified over an alleged breach of fuel flow regulations – a penalty his Red Bull team are appealing.
