F1 » Ricciardo happy to get Silverstone finish

Daniel Ricciardo: I feel quite good to finish and see the chequered flag. It was nice to get the laps, which I think was the most important thing for me today for experience. Understanding the tyres, the pit stops and the strategy, it's really very complex and something I've never really done before, so in this respect I think it was a step forward.

Very valuable experience I think. The testing ban really makes it very difficult to introduce up and coming young drivers into the sport , and to give them a fair chance of success. Driving that HRT and watching out for blue flags all the time must be very daunting and I think that just to get to the end of the race was all that he needed for the first hurdle.

I don't think he's risking that much TBH. Red Bull will know this is a tough challenge. If he does indeed consistently beat Liuzzi and maybe the odd Virgin he might be in with a shot at RBR. If he doesn't, Toro Rosso.
