Dan reveals 'good' vibes with Seb

Dan reveals 'good' vibes with Seb

Daniel Ricciardo has revealed he has a "good relationship" with Sebastian Vettel despite giving him a "run for his money."

In recent seasons, Red Bull has been fraught with team-mate issues as Vettel and previous team-mate Mark Webber clashed on the track and ignored each other off it.

The tense relationship between the two created many headlines such as when Vettel ignored team orders to snatch the 2013 Malaysian GP victory from Webber.

This season, though, there is a different pairing at Red Bull and with it has come a very different relationship.

"As team-mates, we have a good relationship," Ricciardo, who joined the reigning Champions this season, told Sport Bild.

"We have the same sense of humour and the atmosphere is positive.

"We eat breakfast together and that's not too common for team-mates."

However, on the track the 24-year-old is revelling in his fight against the reigning World Champion.

He is leading their personal qualifying battle by three to two while in the grands prix he has beaten his team-mate three times while Vettel has only edged him once.

"It's nice that I can give Seb a run for his money," Ricciardo added.

"It's going well for me at the moment, but I know that Seb will soon get everything out of his car.

"He hasn't lost his ability to drive."
