Ricciardo: Seventh is our goal

Ricciardo: Seventh is our goal

Daniel Ricciardo believes Toro Rosso have what it takes to continue to challenge higher up the grid.

After a difficult start to the season, Ricciardo finally picked up his first points at the Chinese Grand Prix when he not only finished seventh but also made it into Q3 for the first time this year.

However, the team struggled again at Bahrain last time out as he finished 16th after qualifying P13.

The Australian, though, feels their performances at Sepang were a true reflection of the pace of the STR8.

"I think we definitely have to do it again to know where we are," he is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"We finished seventh and we qualified on seventh pretty much on merit.

"I don't think we got lucky. I think we were going to be quite competitive. I think we finished seventh because we had the speed.

"It could be a one-off circuit - you never know - so we want to do it again to really know if that's what we've got, but I think that was a true indication of our speed."
