Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo says it will take a 'big effort' for the squad to beat Ferrari at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Ricciardo was third quickest during a topsy-turvy first practice session though his 16th place in the second session was largely unrepresentative due to the wet weather which affected most of the running.

"The car felt good today, I think we’re more or less where we need to be and on the right track," he said.

"With each passing race, we are managing issues better and if we put a good lap in for qualifying, we’ll hopefully be in a good position.

"I think some teams are catching up to Ferrari but it will still require a big effort to get in front of them. But hopefully we can get ahead of the Williams. We’ll see how we go on Saturday."

Team-mate Daniil Kvyat, who placed fifth, was encouraged by Red Bull's performance.

"The car felt alright today and we are heading in a good direction I think; I did a couple of good times," he said.

"Monaco is a unique track, a bit unusual and I think the package we have is working well so far."
