The Dutchman will line up third.
Ricciardo's vehicle has spent more time in the garage than Verstappen's this weekend, but Ricciardo does not think he can use too much of that as an excuse for the gap to the Dutchman.

The semi-permanent track combines long straights with tight chicanes and each team sets up their vehicle to maximize straight line speed, although the cars also need to deliver a good ride over the relatively tall curbs. "Ferrari did a better job today and that's just the way it is".
"It was a big relief when I heard it was enough and we'd made it", Vettel said.
"I think we got our stuff together.it felt like the laps were worth more than a sixth place but in the end they weren't. But if he came up and asked me something I'd be open and honest".

The failure added to a miserable weekend for Grosjean, who has yet to score a point this season and damaged his vehicle slightly during Friday's free practice when he struck a groundhog.
