Red Bull duo promise to leave 'few millimetres more'

Red Bull duo promise to leave 'few millimetres more'

Red Bull refused to apportion blame, instead making both drivers apologise to the entire Milton Keynes' headquarters.

Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen were gutted after Red Bull, once again fell out of contention compared to Ferrari and Mercedes.

The spot sets up conditions for Sunday's race that Red Bull doesn't particularly want to happen anytime soon. Both drivers were over six-tenths slower than pole sitter Lewis Hamilton.

Once again the main factor was the engine as the underpowered Renault unit in the RB14 couldn't keep up with their rivals through the first two sectors, where higher cornering speeds have seen two corners become nearly full-throttle. It was unable to keep up with its rival engines in the first two sectors.

"It is a little bit disheartening as I don't really know what I could have done more with what we have".

"With the laps we put in I thought we would only be a couple of tenths from pole, not six or seven".

The Austrian marquee usually finds its feet after some in-season development. "Shouldn't we be looking at the tracks and the tire compounds and how they influence races, rather than burdening the teams with what will be hundreds of millions in costs?"

Antonio Conte Doesn't Think Newcastle Defeat Was His Last Chelsea League Match
Conte's side still have the incentive of silverware to play for when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup final next Saturday.

But Horner remained coy on whether the RB14's updates will enable them to change the pecking order at the head of the field. Remember that stern talking to - complete with finger-wagging - you received; the one that went "don't touch this" and "don't do that" because she'd know, and "woe betide you" if you disobeyed?

"We both put good laps on the Supersofts in Q3. I think Mercedes went on a soft - I haven't seen really but even for me it was a guess, so it's a bit tricky". "I saw Sebastian approaching but I knew I had relatively fresh tyres so it would be hard for him to overtake, this allowed me to manage the situation quite well". "I chose the supersoft, Daniel went on the soft".

"I don't think many people will choose the supersoft".

"Over one lap you can maybe go a little bit faster but they will fall apart over a longer run".

"I think a lot of people will choose a soft and a medium", he decided.

"I always feel quite good on this track and today has been a nice turning point after the first few races where it hasn't gone to plan", he said. "We don't have that power mode and especially now that from turn one until turn four it's flat-out". "So it's even harder for us because we lose even more speed because of the friction from the tyres so we just lose more top speed".

"Look", he insisted, "we've attacked before and kept it clean, so we just need to do that".
