Ricciardo will be after his sixth podium in a row as the Formula One season continues at Silverstone on Sunday.

Ricciardo had been leading the timesheets for much of Q1, however, he was forced to stop his Red Bull half way through the session and with conditions improving, he plummeted down the timesheets and was knocked out of qualifying.

The change was confirmed ahead of FP3, meaning Ricciardo will drop five places from wherever he qualifies on Saturday afternoon.

"We made up a chunk of positions early on and then I got a bit greedy, went off track and ended up at the back again". But a suspected turbo failure saw grind to a halt at Woodcote, stopping the session so marshals could recover his stricken RB13. Coming into the British Grand Prix, Ricciardo is on a run of five consecutive podiums which have moved him above Kimi Raikkonen to fourth in the drivers' championship. "Obviously tomorrow is another day - I'm just disappointed not to be able to show more of what we can do in qualifying".

Al Jazeera reported that following the incident, Israeli police cleared the Al-Aqsa Mosque and closed it to the public. Arnon Segal , a Makor Rishon reporter and Temple Mount activist wrote on his Facebook page, "We're back, thank God".

"It's disappointing because we know in these conditions give us a bit more of an opportunity, we were quick at the beginning there, " he added.

"Tomorrow is where the points are, we've got to work hard to get back in there but it is what it is".

However, the newly-formed London GP say they are encouraged by London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, who said this week: "I'm sure F1, working with us, can in the future have a race in London". "Mixed weather could hopefully help me out but I think in either these or dry conditions we can fight through the field and get inside the top ten".
