Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Daniel Ric­cia­rdo had a dif­fi­cult Ja­panese GP, just a week af­ter tri­umph­ing in Malaysia. The Red Bull driver suf­fered a straight­line speed prob­lem in qual­i­fy­ing and de­scribed his Re­nault en­gine as “bleed­ing” power. “It’s just a bit frus­trat­ing be­cause you see the [data] over­lay [with team-mate Max Ver­stap­pen], you see I’m do­ing pretty good in the cor­ners and just bleed­ing on the straights,” he said. “We all want the same for both us but it’s just some­times luck of the draw.” He then made a bad get­away af­ter start­ing from the wet­ter side of the grid and got stuck be­hind Ser­gio Perez, which he said ru­ined his race.
