Ricciardo: Every point helps my future

Daniel Ricciardo is hoping his latest points-finish, which came in Singapore, will go some way towards securing his F1 future.


The Australian brought his Toro Rosso home in ninth place on Sunday night after a thrilling battle in which he held Red Bull's Mark Webber at bay.

It was the 23-year-old's third two-pointer of the season.

"It doesn't hurt," Ricciardo told The Age when asked if the result was 'good for your future at Toro Rosso.'

"Every time I get points it's good and particularly with this team.

"It hasn't been easy to crack the top 10 at the best of times, so every point helps - and to get two is a mini-podium, in a way."

Pressed as to whether he was confident of remaining in Formula One next season, he said: "Put it this way, if I can keep a few more of these results coming, I think so.

"It's definitely on the right path to secure a seat. It isn't a podium, but realistically, it's good.

"I still want to keep improving. I wasn't particularly happy with qualifying, to be honest.

"I still want to get that perfect, perfect weekend, but this was definitely one of the ones that came close."
