The four-time world champions have struggled in the opening two rounds of the season as its woes with the Renault V6 hybrid engine continue.
On the back of an outstanding first season with Red Bull, Ricciardo expected to be fighting for the championship in 2015.
However, with the RB11 well off the pace behind Mercedes and Ferrari, the Australian has revised his expectations for the remainder of the season.
“I think coming into the season, (I was) obviously hoping to get some more wins and try and fight for a title,” he is quoted as saying by AAP.
“After two races, I’ve got to be a bit more reserved on that now. But … I think we can still target a victory at least.
“It’s probably not going to come in China, but it is a long season and I feel we can definitely get there.
“We’ll just keep working at it and hopefully we get one before Abu Dhabi in November.”
Ricciardo was the only driver outside the Mercedes pairing of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg to win a Grand Prix in 2014, picking up victories in Canada, Hungary and Belgium.
