Daniel Ricciardo taking his cranky pants off in Montreal

Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo is determined to put his narrow loss at the Monaco Grand Prix behind him and is now looking ahead to the race in  Montreal.

Two weeks ago the Australian claimed pole position, only to finish behind Lewis Hamilton when he was called into the pits and his team didn’t have the correct tyres ready.

Hamilton will be aiming for a fifth Canadian Grand Prix win, Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg is the other favourite to win.

But Ricciardo reckons he can be a contender, particularly at a track where the weather can act as a leveller. Temperatures are forecast to be cool with some rain.
