RaceFans Round-up: Mercedes’ dominance “admirable but frustrating”

In the round-up: Daniel Ricciardo says Mercedes’ continued dominance of Formula 1 deserves respect, though it frustrates him.

What they say

Ricciardo was speaking after qualifying, where Mercedes were over a second a lap quicker than anyone else.

I feel like I’ve always been on the side of taking my hat off to them and putting the [onus] on everyone else to find what they’re doing and to work a little harder or in another direction.

Even the DAS system, I think, when I saw that in winter testing, I was very complimentary because they have the ability to be the most complacent team on the grid yet I feel they are the least complacent. This is this is the bar that they’ve set and they keep moving.

So it’s admirable, it’s frustrating as competitors, but I really hope for everyone, for all the teams, it’s just more fuel for the fire and [they’ll] just dig a little deeper to find some answers. I won’t lie, it still is frustrating to see such performance. But all you can do is take your hat off to them, really. You can’t be bitter, they are doing a great job.
