“For sure I'll race hard and try to get a good result for myself and the team. I would like to express my gratitude towards Tata Group and the rest of sponsors for their continued support and belief throughout my career”.
Red Bull backed Ricciardo meanwhile also thinks the inaugural Indian GP will be a good one: “I haven't seen the circuit yet but I've tried it out on Red Bull's simulator. I've heard it looks quite good from Mark [Webber] and Sebastian [Vettel] and if they say that then usually their judgment is pretty good,” he continued.
“It's always nice to go to a new place and circuit. I think every driver is excited to see what it is like. I like Indian food but it's a little bit heavy, perhaps not the best for the diet, I will be quite careful leading up to the weekend but maybe on Sunday night I will enjoy a good curry.
“I did a show run in India a couple of weeks ago and there were loads of people, I've heard it's already sold out so there should be quite a good turnout for the race. We had a good performance in Korea and I hope we can keep on improving in India,” Ricciardo summed-up.
