The rookie 23-year-old's ninth place in Singapore was his third such foray into the points since debuting for Toro Rosso in his native Australia in March.

The Red Bull-owned team ousted its race drivers Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari at the end of last season.

Asked if scoring points in Singapore helps his chances of staying on the grid for 2013, Ricciardo answered: "Yeah, it doesn't hurt.

"Put it this way," he told the Melbourne Age newspaper. "If I can keep a few more of these results coming, I think so. It's definitely on the right path to secure a seat."
