‘We deserved these points’ says Tsunoda after sealing first top-10 finish in Monaco

“Then the second one, from memory he just came across, protected the inside as there was [Esteban] Ocon not there [following his retirement during the red flag], so his start was a little bit better, [he] came across and then I think that allowed Alonso some room on the outside.

“I looked at both Astons for really the whole race, but that’s no surprise, that’s how it is around here. I had two laps the whole race in clear air where I could push a little bit – they were enjoyable.

“The rest… there was a few with Alonso trying to create something so that was a little bit of fun, but not 70-something laps, that was a little bit painful.

“Not the Monaco I wanted for sure, but going to pick myself up and get back on it. Montreal’s a good track, I enjoy it, so [I’ll] try and get this thing going a little better than it has.”

While he is already looking ahead to the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix – a race in which he claimed his first F1 victory 10 years ago – Ricciardo admitted that he also feels frustrated by his lack of consistency in comparison to his team mate.

“I think there’s a lot of positives with [seeing the team score points with Tsunoda], but there’s also personal frustration and disappointment, because it obviously can be done and Yuki’s got points the last few races,” the 34-year-old added.

“I think that’s where I’m just going to pick myself up and find what it is that I’m not quite showing consistently. I feel like, when I do show it, it’s obviously there. But, yeah, obviously [it] has to come every weekend, otherwise that’s no good, so Montreal we’ll try and pick it up.”
