In another interview reported by Speedcafe.com, the Aussie also let Villeneuve fly.

«I still don’t know what he said, but I heard he was talking to ***,» Ricciardo said after qualifying.

After his best qualifying performance of the season, Ricciardo will start the Canadian Grand Prix from fifth position.
