Daniel Ricciardo says Red Bull is "95% where we want to be" in Abu Dhabi after Friday's pair of practice sessions at the Yas Marina Circuit.
Ricciardo was fourth quickest in the twilight second session in his RB11 and is hopeful that the squad can keep Ferrari and Williams at bay across the remainder of the weekend.
"Today was a good day for us," he said. "This afternoon we made some adjustments with the set-up from this morning and the evening session is the one that reflects the conditions we will see in qualifying and the race.
"I was happy with the balance and think we were more or less where we want to be. As always, there’s some fine tuning to do but I’m pleased with where we ended today.
"Force India was quick and surprisingly strong here. I’m happy with the car. We are pretty much 95% to where we want to be so that’s good for a Friday.
"As always on Saturday, Ferrari and Williams seem to make a bit more of a step. Hopefully the others don’t close the gap too much but let’s see what happens tomorrow. Sure we can find a little bit more but probably not a whole lot. If we qualify top five, we’ll be happy."
