Daniel Ricciardo expressed his delight after taking the final point at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Ricciardo started from nineteenth place but came through to finish in tenth.

"It was nice to get that point! We ran a long first stint on the Hards and I think that helped us build a good base to have a strong pace in the final stints on the Medium," he said.

"I felt much more comfortable on the Option tyre and that’s when my race really started. With the last set of tyres I was knocking out maybe ten or so qualifying laps and managed to pick off some cars in front to bring home that crucial point."

"We knew we had to move on from yesterday. I had said that starting where we were, getting in the points would be good, so I’m happy with that and with the pace we showed while fighting to get there."

Red Bull driver Mark Webber also hinted that Ricciardo now has the vacant for 2014 seat.

"The decision's made. We all know who it is. I'm happy with that decision. It's good for him and good for Australia," Webber told Australian media prior to the race.
