New chassis for Ricciardo

Date published: June 12 2015

Following his Canadian GP woes, Daniel Ricciardo will be racing a new chassis at the next grand prix in Austria.

Ricciardo struggled with pace during last Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix, a race the Red Bull driver started in ninth place.

But rather than battle for points, he dropped down the order, finishing in a disappointing 13th place.

Rating it as his "worst" grand prix, Ricciardo has revealed he'll be getting a new chassis for the upcoming Austrian GP which will hopefully see him pick up the pace.

"It was my worst race," he revealed.

"I can still laugh because I know that there was something fundamentally wrong with the car.

"I'm not a second slower than [Daniil] Kvyat and I haven't suddenly forgotten how to drive.

"We will know in Austria, as I am scheduled to get a new chassis there.

"I don't think that it's the chassis, as I've never been wild with the kerbs or hit the wall or anything – there is nothing that could explain that sort of damage."
