Daniel Ricciardo is confident that Red Bull will be able to challenge Ferrari during the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Red Bull has endured a difficult campaign but Ricciardo secured fourth place in qualifying at the Hungaroring, narrowly behind Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel.

Ricciardo is optimistic of battling his former team-mate on Sunday as Red Bull chases its first podium of 2015.

"I am really happy with the session today and with my qualifying performance," he said.

"We were very close to Seb which is positive. I found a really good rhythm, obviously we had a few problems yesterday but the weekend as a whole has gone well so far.

"Our long run pace was pretty handy yesterday so I am confident we can battle it out with the red cars in the race tomorrow. I’m feeling good about it."

Team-mate Daniil Kvyat will line-up from seventh position on the grid.

"It was tough today, it wasn’t my best qualifying session as I didn’t find a good rhythm," he said.

"It’s disappointing, we should be stronger at this track. We are starting the race tomorrow from an okay position, hopefully we can move up the grid, it won’t be easy but we’ll try our best."
