Ricciardo defends Austria’s kerbs

Daniel Ricciardo is a fan of the controversial kerbs in Austria.



Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo goes through a corner with the Red Bull Ring's controversial yellow kerbs.

The Red Bull Ring’s aggressive kerbs that broke Pierre Gasly suspension during FP2 for the Austrian Grand Prix are a “good thing”, says Daniel Ricciardo.

The Red Bull driver said he damaged his wing on a kerb during FP1, but still believes it’s the driver’s job to stay off them.

“Some of these modern circuits that don’t have walls don’t really have a limit, Ricciardo said after FP2, “I don’t think this is a bad alternative.”

Located predominantly on the final two corners and the Turn 6 and 7 infield section, the kerbs caused problems for the likes of Stoffel Vandoorne and Max Verstappen throughout F1’s two ninety-minute practice sessions.
