Sebastian Vettel has admitted that team-mate Daniel Ricciardo is doing a better job than he is this season so far after the Australian outqualified him for a third time.

Ricciardo will start second behind Lewis Hamilton, whilst Vettel will line-up third having qualified half a second down on the other Red Bull in tricky conditions.

Speaking after, he admits he needs to do a better job if he's to take the fight to Ricciardo.

"This year is very, very different, the cars are different, you cannot compare last year to this year," said Vettel.

"Daniel is doing a very good job. He has not had one good weekend, he has had all good weekends.

"So far he is able to get the maximum out of the car, and on my side, maybe I am struggling a bit more.

"But at the end we have the same car so if he beats me he beats me fair and square. That is not to my liking. Equally I know I have to do a little bit better."
