Red Bull are over 100 points behind Mercedes and Ferrari in the World Constructors’ Championship standings but Ricciardo has secured three consecutive podiums since Spain.
And the Aussies believes more progress has been made in those weeks than the rest of the season combined.
Daniel Ricciardo believes Red Bull are finally beginning to get to grips with the 2017 season after a difficult start to the campaign.
“I would say we wanted to be better than we are,” Ricciardo told the official Red Bull website.
“It’s nice to come off a few podiums in a row, but we would have loved to have a record like Seb – firsts and seconds all the way. But look, we are aware of where we are now, so we have just got to keep chipping away.
“I do feel we’ve learned more in the past couple of races than we had all season [to that point] and that’s definitely going to speed things up.”
