Johannesburg [South Africa], Dec 15 (ANI): Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo, who feels that Formula One is more dominant with the cars than the drivers, said that he would like to see a balance between the two.
The Australian has said that the highest class auto racing is a talk around who has the fastest car rather than the natural driving talent.
"Lewis (Hamilton) has won three of the last four championships, but if he was in a midfield team, he wouldn't have three of the last four championships," the Sport24 quoted Ricciardo as saying.
He added, "The car is a big part of it, but you need to be a good driver to get the equipment to the top. You need both. It's still a bit more dominant with the car than the driver I'd say maybe 75 percent to 25 percent".
The 2009 British Formula Three Championship winner quipped that to make it a 50:50 ratio, the equipment should be taken out a bit and the driver should be brought in.
However, with his contract with Red Bull coming to an end, the 28-year-old could be seen racing for Mercedes or Ferrari. (ANI)
