Ricciardo expects a talking to ahead of Spanish GP

"I didn't really know what to expect", he told reporters afterwards. "Obviously Friday paints one picture, but you're never really sure what's going to happen".

Max Verstappen and team-mate Daniel Ricciardo locked out the third row of the grid for the race.

"Initially I thought so but then I kept going and I felt a bit more understeer in Turns 3 and 9". But in general, I think they still trust us.

"Add together with my final lap I couldn't continue". "It wasn't our preferred tyre".

"Q3 I think we [Verstappen] both put in a good lap on the supers, which I don't think was our preferred tyre, just the way the vehicle is feeling this weekend I felt the softs were better so that is why I went for them in the second part of Q3".

That's why I went for that tyre in the second part of Q3. I chipped away at my lap time by a few hundredths but it wasn't enough and they put in a few belters at the end.

"That gap is not so nice", he sighed. Drivers Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo were nearly seven-tenths of a second away from pole-man Lewis Hamilton, with Verstappen setting a time over two tenths slower than that of fourth-placed Kimi Räikkönen.




"The two one thousandths of a gap that's not nice either, but it is what it is", he agreed.

No. 1: Their two drivers fighting for the same bit of tarmac. "I don't know. We'll try".

The spot sets up conditions for Sunday's race that Red Bull doesn't particularly want to happen anytime soon. I don't think we're necessarily struggling in the front or the rear but overall downforce is always good. Same from Turn 7 to 10. We talk about costs and being responsible but what has just been introduced is a completely new concept which will cost millions and millions of pounds. "We don't have that power mode and especially now that from turn one until turn four it's flat-out".

Horner feels the changes are a knee-jerk reaction to the lack of passes at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, and says the sport has made an "irresponsible" decision with concepts likely to cost teams "millions of pounds".

"I still don't know what the full story is to be honest", he said.

"Personally, I'd like to see him in a Ferrari".
