Daniel Ricciardo made a promising start to Formula One's preseason by driving his Red Bull to the fastest time and the most laps on the track near Barcelona Monday. Ricciardo clocked 1 minute, 20.179 seconds before rain and cold track temperatures that dipped below 7 degrees Celsius kept most cars off the tarmac. Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari and Nico Hulkenberg of Renault were all also within 0.4 seconds of Ricciardo.Last year, Ricciardo proved to be the circuit's next best driver after the dominant four of Mercedes and Ferrari. He finished fifth overall with one grand prix win in his fifth season with Red Bull.Alonso eventually returned to the track and finished with the fifth-fastest time and 51 laps completed.
