Daniel Ricciardo admits he will 'do what he can' with the Red Bull package he has after settling into a lonely gap behind the leaders and ahead of the chasing pack during free practice for the Russian Grand Prix.

The Australian ended his day around the Sochi Autodrom with the sixth fastest time, a full 1.7secs down on pace setter Sebastian Vettel but also three tenths up on the more tightly packed 'mid-field'.

A position Red Bull has maintained since the start of the season, Ricciardo was satisified with the balance of his RB13 but admits there is little more he can do to make an impression on Ferrari and Mercedes ahead.

"In terms of us this weekend we know that this is what we've got, so we are trying to do what we can with the current package, but we are not expecting too much this weekend," he said. "We will do what we can, get the job done and then hopefully fight for a bit more in a few weeks.

"We can improve, but as far as positions go fifth and sixth is the best we can achieve. We can still improve ore with the car with what we have here this weekend, but as far as positions, Ferrari and Mercedes are too fast."

Red Bull is set to introduce a 'B-spec' car for the next round in Spain, scene of Max Verstappen famous victory 12 months ago.
