The driver seems content on his performance in the 2016 moto gp season; managing to rack up a third place behind Verstappen and Raikkonen. What many fans would want to know is whether the outcome would have been any different had the team pitted both drivers an equal number of times.
This year’s Circuit De Cataluña might hold the answers to this question. The star has been heard admitting that he is still licking his wounds after last year’s defeat but still remains optimistic that this year’s season chances will be less slim. This coupled with the techno-mechanical threats issuing from Team Red Bull on their newer engines and builds; odds placed on this wheeler might not be too much of a dare, to say the least. Ricciardo finished fourth owing to a puncture and based solely on the fact he outraced his teammate, Vettel, he certainly is the candidate to place wagers on this coming season.
