(cafetheology.org) – "It's always fun here," says Daniel Ricciardo at the press conference after the Grand Prix of Belgium. The Australian has just secured the third place behind Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel and thus brought a podium place that few had expected before. But Ricciardo, who had just started from sixth place, played the safety car phase perfectly into the cards. "As a result, Daniel has been a phenomenal race today," says Teamchef Christian Horner, enthusiastically. However, the Australians were first of all proficient in the competition. Team colleague Max Verstappen failed with a motor problem, and Kimi Raikk√∂nen had a stop-and-go penalty. By these two incidents, Ricciardo was already swept up to fourth place. With the top 3 he could not keep up. But the safety car phase against the race ensured that Ricciardo suddenly lay directly behind Valtteri Bottas. "He was on Soft and I on Ultrasoft, I knew if we wanted a podium, then it had to happen at the restart," Ricciardo describes the situation. And just then the Australian then hit too.Marko and Horner excited By Eau Rouge he sucked at Bottas and pulled past the end of the long straights. "Just like in Baku," says Helmut Marko at Sky, explaining, "Overtaking out of nowhere, the last thing on the brake, and still optimally turning it into something that Ricciardo is like no other." "I have seen Valtteri go inside, so I went outside, but then I thought to myself, 'I do not know if he saw Kimi. Maybe Kimi will try it in, "Ricciardo reports. That's exactly how it came to an end. "I had windscreens of two cars, but Ricciardo was on the one hand and Bottas was in the middle, I had enough speed to get to Bottas," said Raikkonen, "I focused on Valtteri, of course, but I knew That Kimi is there, I got a good windshade from Valtteri, but we knew the Ferrari had more speed in the straight than we did, "Ricciardo adds, revealing that he never saw Raikkonen during the entire overtaking maneuver. "I thought I'd be in front," the Australian said. He was not so cold-hearted before … He was really sure of his turn at turn 6, when he saw the Ferrari in the rear-view mirror. This maneuver was not without danger. "That looked good on the TV," laughs Ricciardo, whose podium remembers his surprising spa victory in 2014. "I think even when I won here, our qualifying was not so good, but on Sunday we always seem to find a little extra pace," he explains.
