  • Red Bull's Max Verstappen angry over F1 engine failure at Hungarian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen was Red Bull Racing's best shot at a podium for Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Dutchman was running in fifth place behind the Mercedes and Ferrari cars when he announced he had "no power" coming out of turn one on his sixth lap at the Hungaroring. What a f****** joke. This is s***, honestly'. Indeed, Daniel Ricciardo was forced to retire from last week's German Grand Prix with a similar issue.

"Sometimes words betray you", said Horner, as he watched Verstappen park his vehicle on only the sixth lap, again the victim of reliability gremlins.

The situation, replaying what Red Bull has seen so many times in 2018, was heightened when Sky Sports interviewed Team Principal Christian Horner on-air.

"But at the end, at the moment, I also don't really care". Vandoorne was returning to the left of the track after the exit of Turn 4 but went too far and immediately swapped ends as he tried to turn in from off the circuit.

"But we pay multi-millions of pounds for these engines, for a first-class product, a state-of-the-art product and you can see it is quite clearly some way below that. I will let Cyril (Abiteboul, head of Renault Sport) come up with his excuses afterwards".

With overtaking so hard in Hungary, Ricciardo says qualifying on the front two rows of the grid is a must if Red Bull is to make of the most of its typically stronger race pace relative to qualifying. "It's frustrating, but we've still got Daniel [Ricciardo] in the race".

Red Bull's 20-year-old Dutch driver Max Verstappen was third on the timesheets, 0.088 slower than his teammate, with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen fourth.

Sebastian Vettel, his Ferrari team mourning the death of former chairman Sergio Marchionne, ended the day with the quickest lap of one minute 16.834 seconds, but Red Bull's Ricciardo led the way in the morning with a best of 1:17.613.

It subsequently emerged that the Australian had been unable to take all the new components Red Bull had wanted because Renault made only three of the six items available. "The normal strategy is to change everything you can".
