Red Bull boss Christian Horner says that Daniel Ricciardo’s brilliant drive in Melbourne will be a major boost for the Aussie’s confidence.

The pressure of a home race in front of a demanding crowd, the first race, a debut in a new team. He’s not been in the spotlight when you’re racing in the mid grid like that, and he was perfect all weekend.
