Ricciardo starts the Spanish F1 Grand Prix ninth, Charles Leclerc on pole

Daniel Ricciardo says he is hopeful of achieving his second top-10 finish of the season, after qualifying ninth for Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix.

The Australian overtook his McLaren teammate Lando Norris for the first time in 2022 after Norris had a lap time erased for going off track and was eliminated in Q2.

Ricciardo said the weekend had been a learning curve for the team, which bought new car upgrades for Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

He said practice sessions had been “tricky” as the team tried to perfect their car’s set-up.
