Watch: Daniel Ricciardo’s qualifying crash in Australia

After a poor showing of pace during Formula 1’s season-opening 2017 Australian Grand Prix, a crash during qualifying for Daniel Ricciardo summed up the palpably negative atmosphere at Red Bull Racing.

Watch here how Ricciardo loses the back-end during his Q3 lap into Turn 14, a faster right-hander in the third sector.

The new generation of cars in 2017 have been deemed harder to drive then previous years. This puts forward an explanation for the out-of-character crash Ricciardo had, which led to his gearbox problems during Sunday’s race.

Red Bull will return to Formula 1 for the Chinese Grand Prix on April 7th.
