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

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

The Australian out-qualified McLaren teammate Lando Norris for the first time in 2022 after Norris had a lap time deleted for going off the track and was knocked out in Q2.

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

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