Do higher than that.”
After Grosjean’s crash, Ricciardo voiced his considerations to F1 and when requested by RACER if he could be doing equally after his newest feedback, he admitted he wished he’d used totally different language.

And the good achievements of quite a lot of particular person drivers and particular person performances, some spectacular overtakes — I felt that there have been higher tales to be informed, versus simply crashes. That is clearly my opinion however I really feel that our sport is healthier than that. I really feel that we’re higher than simply exhibiting crashes.
“Whether or not it’s different classes or varieties of sports activities or disciplines to indicate I’d say that stage of highlights, I really feel that we’re above that. I really feel that we’re probably the most proficient drivers on the planet, and we’re driving these wonderful automobiles. So usually a crash is exhibiting much less of our skills.

We completely make errors however I’d most likely spotlight the highs extra if I had artistic management. I don’t know if each different driver appears like that, however clearly it’s how I really feel. I’ve apologized, however I’d take again at the very least the language from these feedback. That was general my opinion of what I’d do if I had an opportunity to direct it a bit bit.”
