Red Bull boss Christian Horner says that Daniel Ricciardo’s brilliant drive in Melbourne will be a major boost for the Aussie’s confidence.
Ricciardo finished second before he was excluded, having not put a foot wrong all weekend.
“I think it should give him a great injection of confidence,” Horner said before the controversy erupted. “He’s been immensely impressive this weekend. The pressure of a home race in front of a demanding crowd, the first race, a debut in a new team. He’s not been in the spotlight when you’re racing in the mid grid like that, and he was perfect all weekend.
