Red Bull preview Malaysia, Bahrain

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo share their thoughts on the upcoming back-to-back races, Malaysia and Bahrain... Sebastian Vettel: "We still have a lot of work to do with the car but it was encouraging to see that our pace was better than expected in Australia - hopefully we can build on that and start collecting some strong points in the next two races. Next stop is Kuala Lumpur, which I like as a city. Downtown can sometimes seem sterile, but then you turn a corner and the streets burst into life with the night markets. Whenever I have time I try to go there and see what they have to offer. Looking to the track, the two overtaking possibilities are the first corner and before the last corner, which in both cases is after a long straight; my favourite corners are five and six. Beside the challenge of the circuit, you have to cope with the tropical heat. We can be driving in humidity of up to 90%, while big thunderstorms in the afternoon are not uncommon. From there we go to Bahrain, where we've recently been for winter testing, so it will feel quite familiar and after the high humidity in Malaysia it will be nice to go to dry heat. Because the circuit is in the middle of the desert, sand can be blown up in the wind on to the racing line. The circuit has a nice combination of fast, slow and medium corners and is pretty technical to drive. I also like the rosewater they have instead of champagne!" Daniel Ricciardo: "Despite the eventual outcome in Melbourne, I still feel really good about my performance in the race and throughout the weekend. Obviously it would be nice to get the 18 points, but I'm happy that I still stood on the podium and that was a great feeling. I know I did a good job and I can take that with me to the next race in Malaysia. One thing you have to take into account there is the heat. I first drove at Sepang when I was 16 in a four-day Formula BMW test and you couldn't really say I was prepared for it! ! Until you've experienced the heat in the cockpit, it isn't something you can fully appreciate, no matter what people tell you. I was drinking six litres of fluid a day and I still suffered. It's something you prepare for better as you come back again and again, though it's still one of the most physically-challenging races. If you're not correctly prepared then the last 20 laps of a grand prix will be difficult and the physicality of the race can hit your concentration in those latter stages. And so you train, train and train! The race is back to back with Bahrain. I'm not certain what effect two weeks of pre-season testing there is going to have when we race there. Everyone's had a bit of a chance to get their set-up dialled in, so that may bring the field closer together. The circuit isn't one of my favourites, as you can't get a brilliant flow there, but there are a couple of technical turns to put us drivers and the cars through our paces. The RB10 surprised us in Australia by being more competitive than we thought in the dry and the wet, so let's see what the next two races brings."
