Daniel Ricciardo says he must study where he is losing time to Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

Ricciardo qualified in fifth place for the Malaysian Grand Prix, three positions behind reigning world champion Vettel.

"Finding space on the track can be tough and the visibility is so bad, the spray comes from hundreds of metres away so just getting some clean road is something you really have to try and take care of," he said.

"I was a bit off in Q3, so I’ve got to try and understand why, but nonetheless I think top five is not too bad, considering the conditions. I think we’ve definitely got a better chance in the wet.

"Mercedes were really quick this morning in the dry, so it would be good if it’s like this in the race. Sebastian had quite a big gap to me, so I’ve got to see where I can improve really as his pace was really good and close to pole."
