Daniel Ricciardo says he is happy with his performance at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after securing fifth on the grid for Sunday's race.

Ricciardo will line-up on the third row of the grid at the Yas Marina Circuit and is hopeful that Red Bull will be able to repel the threat from Williams drivers Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa.

"I’m happy with the session," said Ricciardo. "I think we’ve done really well. We were able to improve in every session and the weekend so far has been pretty smooth.

"Our lap time kept on getting better and better and that’s when you know the session’s gone well. You find a few tenths each run.

"Last year, one of my best qualifying performances was here and today sort of backed that up. Our target for tomorrow is definitely to keep the Williams behind us and find a way around [Sergio] Perez. He was really quick today. I hope they fade a bit in the race.

"It should be interesting tomorrow. We won’t have an easy time passing them on track but at least it’s a track where you can overtake. The DRS zones are good and you can definitely have a go."
