Recharged Ricciardo can be a handful for Hamilton

Recharged Ricciardo can be a handful for Hamilton

We've seen from these opening six races that anything's possible and these swings inevitably go both ways.

Defending champion Lewis Hamilton says his first win of 2016 is evidence that he is as good as ever following a hard start to the season.

And Ricciardo, also denied victory at the Spanish Grand Prix after another strategical blunder by his team, emerged from the pits in second and unable to find a route past eventual victor Lewis Hamilton.

Ricciardo's misfortune two weeks ago enabled world champion Hamilton to cut team-mate Nico Rosberg's lead at the top of the Drivers' Championship to 24 points.

Red Bull secured its first victory in F1 for two and a half years in Spain, and followed that up with pole position in Monaco courtesy of Renault's upgraded engine.

"I have to say how grateful I am to my mechanics for sticking at it and sticking with me after what's not been an easy start this year".

Daniel Ricciardo is "hopeful" Red Bull can challenge Mercedes for victory in this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.

They're also seeking statutory damages and either an injunction on the track, a cut of its running royalties. The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles this week at a federal court.

Rosberg struggled to seventh in Monte Carlo but says he was prepared for challenging weekends and is interested to learn if Red Bull will provide another test in Canada. We could be very close to the front of the championship right now.

Asked if victory at the last race could nonetheless prove the springboard to a winning run into the summer, Hamilton cautioned: "Of course, I'd love that". It would be a nice and unexpected story for Formula 1. "It is still a long-shot, but if we can be competitive, I believe in myself that I can fight and do what I have got to do to put myself in a position come the end of the year". I spoke to various people in the team and they explained what happened at the time and the situation.

After Monaco, the 26-year-old said he would need a few days before he could bear to listen to Red Bull's explanation for what went wrong.

So let's hope the vehicle is back to normal come Canada because that means we are in for a close race... But the main thing we took away was the very real threat from Red Bull.

McLaren driver Jenson Button, left, of Great Britain, chats with Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo, of Australia, during a news conference at the Canadian Grand Prix in Thursday, June 9, 2016 in Montreal.

But he also questioned their decision to make an earlier pit stop for intermediate tyres as the track dried, while Hamilton went straight from full wet tyres to slicks with a single stop.
