Daniel Ricciardo has admitted Red Bull's qualifying pace has surprised him.

The Australian will line up fourth for tomorrow's Australian Grand Prix, one spot behind team mate Max Verstappen, who believed he could have started on the front row.

"I don't know how we're so close to pole," Ricciardo said. "I guess everyone just had handling issues out there. I thought it was a pretty terrible balance. It was a handful. We didn't expect the perfect car, you can't when the altitude is like this."

"From that I think fourth is great. When I see pole we pretty much missed that in the first sector," he added. "I wasn't I guess very happy with the balance and all that... to come out with fourth is lucky."
