finish with third place at the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday (Source: Reuters) Top News Daniel Ricciardo has found the “sweet spot” in a Red Bull car that is showing increasing signs of challenging Ferrari and Mercedes for pace Ricciardo secured a fifth consecutive podium finish with third place at the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday It followed an impressive win in Azerbaijan two weeks ago and further cemented his grip on fourth spot in the Formula One driver standings With his trademark grin and eccentric podium routine the 28-year-old Australian is the most jovial driver in F1 When on the podium Ricciardo’s traditional routine is to take off his shoe fill it with champagne and hand it to one of the other drivers to take a sip before gulping the rest of it down Cold champagne mixed with shoe sweat is an acquired taste It seems to agree with Ricciardo however and there could be a few more podium brews with 11 races left this season “I’m getting more comfortable with the car Things are moving forward and I can see a little bit of a sweet spot” Ricciardo said “I feel we have good momentum Five in a row is awesome You get the taste of a few podiums and you want a few more” Red Bull which won four straight drivers’ and constructors’ titles during Sebastian Vettel’s dominant spell from 2010-13 had concerns about whether it could keep up with Ferrari and Mercedes this season But it seems the gap in race speed is not as big as they feared “That’s the biggest satisfaction today the fact that we had raw pace” Ricciardo said “Today we earned a podium on a circuit which isn’t (suited) to our strengths The car is certainly getting there” Ricciardo is an audacious driver and also one of the best at defending his position On Sunday Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes was right on Ricciardo’s tail in a gripping last two laps Hamilton almost passed a couple of times but Ricciardo relished the challenge of holding off a three-time F1 champion “Lewis was putting on a charge at the end The first thing that came into my head was the word `Fight’ Get prepared for that get excited” Ricciardo said “You have to keep your wits about you It was a tough last few laps I had some sweat coming down and my eyes were blurring a bit” Red Bull team principal Christian Horner was happy with Ricciardo’s performance “It was just zero mistakes” Horner said “He judged it perfectly he picked his braking point he nailed the apex and that gave Lewis nowhere to go” Hamilton who has won 56 races has acknowledged the increasingly competitive Red Bull “I was giving it hell and still I wasn’t closing massively on him” Hamilton said “If they can pull that out in qualifying I think that’s going to be great for the rest of the season we’re going to have a third team battling with us” Ricciardo who has five career wins is in his fourth season at Red Bull In his first he was promoted from the Toro Rosso feeder team to drive alongside Vettel for the 2014 campaign He surprised many by finishing ahead of Vettel and winning three races finishing third overall while Vettel won none and placed fifth Vettel left in 2015 to join Ferrari leaving Ricciardo as Red Bull’s outright No 1 driver But when teen sensation Max Verstappen joined Red Bull early last season _ winning the Spanish GP on his debut _ Ricciardo found himself under pressure Many observers even expected Verstappen to step up another level this year However the 19-year-old Dutchman is enduring a hugely frustrating campaign so far He retired early in Sunday’s race because of a clutch problem after being tagged by Fernando Alonso’s McLaren in a crash caused by Toro Rosso driver Daniil Kvyat While Ricciardo celebrated his fifth straight podium Verstappen failed to finish for the fifth time this season “It’s massively tough for him But he will come through it as a stronger character” Horner said “He’s performing at such a high level that I think when it does come right he could quite easily win three races in a row” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Ritu S | Updated: May 27 2015 6:06 pm We live the better part of our life trying to change things around us (Source: Thinkstock Images) Related News We live the better part of our life trying to change things around us especially in terms of people and situation And this constant struggle to change them only leaves us exhausted and agitated Day after day phase after phase in spite of all our efforts we realise we are caught in the same rut And what a waste of a life to live with such bitterness But what is one to do when things refuse to budge Things refuse to change because they are not meant to change at that particular point of time No matter what we do – whether it’s a person or a situation – things have a way of happening in their own time “A time for which one has to wait with tremendous patience Until that time comes it is not going to happen” says Osho the Zen master But while they take their time we have the freedom to accept them or fight them This is probably the only change you can bring about in the given situation Life is all about settling our karmic debts (rnanubandhan) that we have accrued over lifetimes We manage to settle some debts but the unsettled debts get carried forward to another lifetime The process of the journey of the soul to settle its karmic debts from one lifetime to another is called ‘reincarnation’ The people in different situations in our life are there to settle their karmic debts with us We give what we owe to the others and likewise we receive what they owe us Till the time we refuse to do so the very persons or situations will continue to hound us life after life So when we feel that we are in a situation where there is no apparent exit at least for the moment let us live it out without struggle It’s the best way to wash off your karmic slate The day our debt is over whether it was a bad marriage an obnoxious boss a state of unemployment the obstacle will recede on its own vanish into thin air like a bad dream Till then remember – “forbearance is the ornament of a hero” Invoke the hero in you and ride out the
