Daniel Ricciardo completed a handful of laps in the RB10 before issues similar to yesterday’s forced him to stop. The team will now spend the remainder of today investigating the causes in order to ready the RB10 for tomorrow.

Race Engineering Co-ordinator Andy Damerum said: “We worked hard yesterday to make the changes it was felt were necessary to overcome the problems we identified and we were hopeful of a more successful day today. Unfortunately, the measures we took only partially solved the issue and, as with yesterday, it’s more sensible to stop and dig deeper into finding a solution. It’s obviously not where we want to be and naturally the whole team is frustrated by these issues. However, we’re pretty good at bouncing back from this type of thing. This is where the whole team pulls together and I’m sure we will get these problems fixed.”
