Daniel Ricciardo reckons Red Bull has an "outside chance" of a win during the Canadian Grand Prix, and is hoping for a "five or six way fight" for overall honours.

Red Bull opened its 2016 account in Spain courtesy of Max Verstappen while Ricciardo was on course to triumph in Monaco prior to a pit lane blunder.

Ricciardo will start the Canadian Grand Prix from fourth place on the grid, two years on from his maiden Formula 1 win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

"I would like to say we’ve got an outside chance," he said when asked about his victory prospects.

"Yesterday was interesting. I don’t think we were very good on the long runs, but the track was so much hotter.

"Tomorrow should be cooler, if not wet. With those conditions it could be anyone’s race. Ferrari’s there. Hopefully it’s a five or six way fight."

Max Verstappen will line-up from fifth place as he bids to bounce back from a difficult Monaco Grand Prix.

"It wasn’t too bad, I was enjoying it," he commented.

"That’s the most important [aspect], especially after Monaco.

"We are not too far off Mercedes; with the engine upgrade we’ve made a good step forwards."
