Red Bull team principal Christian Horner is “impressed” by Daniel Ricciardo's performance across the Mexican Grand Prix weekend as the AlphaTauri driver seemed back to “his old self”.
The Australian driver delivered a crucial seventh-place finish in Mexico City, hoisting Red Bull's sister team from the bottom of the constructor's championship, up to eighth place.
If AlphaTauri can maintain their position, Ricciardo's points haul will earn the Italian team a whopping 2.8% increase in F1 prize money which roughly equates to £15 million compared to if they finished plum last.
