Speaking to media after the race Ricciardo also thanked his team and family after taking his fourth grand prix victory.
“After Monaco in particular was obviously mixed emotions. It was a hard one to take. I felt we’ve come through that, as a team we’ve learnt a lot. As a person, it made me a bit stronger. I think I’ve only got better since then.”
“I want to thank my parents. They’re not here this weekend but definitely without them… I think just simple things, the way they supported me growing up. I had a good upbringing, I’m thankful for that. I think it’s definitely helped me get to this point. My sister as well.”
“And I want to dedicate this one to Jules, as well. I’ve been waiting for a victory and waiting to dedicate this to him.”
“My life definitely changed after that incident. I’m extremely grateful and appreciative of everything that I’ve got. I’ll dedicate this to him.”
