Hungarian GP: Daniel Ricciardo sure he can fight for podium finish

Budapest: Australian Daniel Ricciardo is adamant he can overhaul former team-mate Sebastian Vettel and grab a podium finish for Red Bull in Sunday`s Hungarian Grand Prix.

Vettel of Ferrari qualified ahead of him in third place Saturday behind the two Mercedes of pole-sitter and defending champion Briton Lewis Hamilton and German Nico Rosberg.

"I think we`ve a chance, I really do," said Ricciardo, who won the race in 2014 when Vettel was his team-mate.

"I think Ferrari were a long way off the pace yesterday, in low and high fuel, so it`s really hard to assess where they are.

"Obviously they showed a lot more speed today, but our long run-pace yesterday was pretty handy so I`m confident we can nail them tomorrow. I think the race will be strong for us."

The big-smiling Aussie added that he was pleased to equal his best starting positions of the season in Malaysia and Monaco.

"It was really close and I thought the lap was good enough, I was expecting my engineer to say I`d got into the top three, but it was half a tenth to Seb... Now, let`s see."
