Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo, is heading into 2017 feeling ‘ready' for everything to fall into place and set him on the course for victory.

The Aussie racer finished third in the 2016 Formula One Championship season, behind the two Mercedes drivers, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, but with Rosberg now in early retirement and the raft of rule and regulation changes coming in next season, Daniel's hopes of finishing even higher could very well come to fruition.

Speaking from Perth recently, Daniel said of his title hopes in 2017…"We'll see what happens. You definitely need everything to fall into place, but I personally feel ready. Definitely hungry enough that's for sure."

The new season will get underway in late March at the Albert Park Circuit in Melbourne Australia, Daniel's home race.
