Ricciardo hopes to win for Toro Rosso


Emerging Aussie star Daniel Ricciardo says it’s not impossible to win races for Toro Rosso, despite recent performances from Red Bull’s junior team.

Ricciardo is entering his second year with the team and is confident that strong performances can come in the right conditions.

“It’s not easy of course, but maybe with rain – thinking about what Vettel managed (at Monza in 2008) – then it’s not impossible to win with Toro Rosso,” he told Spanish radio during the week.“I think our goal should be to become the best team after the big fight, so (competing with) Williams, Force India, Sauber. For me it’s to be in the points regularly and if possible get some podiums.”

He also spoke about his chances of potentially replacing fellow Australian Mark Webber at Toro Rosso’s sister team Red Bull in 2014, should Webber retire at the end of the year.

“What I have to do is have a good year and then let’s see. I know what I have to focus on right now.”
