Daniel Ricciardo is optimistic that Red Bull will be able to maintain its recent advantage over Ferrari, despite trailing Sebastian Vettel during practice for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Vettel was second quickest, behind Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, while Ricciardo was seven-tenths behind his former team-mate in fifth position.

Red Bull has enjoyed an advantage over Ferrari in recent rounds, with Max Verstappen winning in Spain and Ricciardo on course to triumph in Monaco prior to a pit blunder.

Ricciardo is confident that, despite his one-lap disadvantage at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Red Bull can still edge out its rivals.

"I had a good knock of the wall on probably my third or fourth lap today, so I was still probably letting off some steam," he said.

"I’ve always enjoyed driving here, pushing the limits and jumping over the kerbs.

"I don’t think we quite got everything out of it today.

"I think if we put the right work in we can be close to Ferrari, or ahead of them.

"Mercedes had a good buffer on us today, but I feel like we’ve got a lot to come from a lot of areas.

"If we’re within half a second tomorrow that would be good, and we’ll see what happens in the race."
