Red Bull formula one team leader Daniel Ricciardo has called for changes in his team after a poor start to the season.
Ricciardo spoke to F1i on the problems with the Red Bull 11 racing car, which has under performed in recent times.
Riccardo believes it is no longer just technical issues or dealing with the departure of Sebastian Vettel, but due to an internal issue with the Red Bull racing team.
“I think some guys here are happy to get paid and just run around and make up the numbers and tell people they’re an F1 driver, but that’s honestly not me and I definitely realised that this year. I’m not content just being here,” Ricciardo said.
“Obviously yeah I get paid to race, but I would take so much less to be able to win again.
“Obviously also the senior guys in terms of… there’s obviously contracts in place for some things but if you’re not making progress then I think you’ve got to try and push the envelope a little bit.
“I’ve got a small window of success, a Formula One career is not long. So I think I can speak up and try to push for a change if I feel there needs to be one.”
