Ricciardo to get pre-race 'talking to'?

Ricciardo to get pre-race 'talking to'?

"It wasn't our preferred tyre. Look, we've attacked before and kept it clean, so we just need to do that".

Ricciardo later revealed that he spun through Turn 10, commenting: "I actually had a spin on the restart so yeah, I was struggling to keep these tyres warm".

"I chipped away at my lap time by a few hundredths but it wasn't enough".

"That gap is not so nice", he sighed.

Verstappen and Ricciardo collided in Baku while battling for fourth position, prompting a furious reaction from team boss Christian Horner and the promise that they would be forced to discuss whether they are still allowed to race each other freely.

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

But while Max Verstappen might have claimed his first podium finish of the season in third, a disappointing performance in qualifying and a deficit of nearly half a minute to race victor Lewis Hamilton mean the Milton Keynes outfit are still some way off where they want to be. However he didn't sound all together convinced that this is on the cards again this weekend.

David Goodall: How Australia's Oldest Scientist Ended His Own Life Aged 104
He told reporters he hoped sharing his story would "increase the pressure" on Australia to change its laws about assisted suicide. Exit International , which represented the scientist, said Goodall passed away while listening to Beethoven's " Ode to Joy ".

Ricciardo said it was not just about the drivers, however. Because we crashed. Even if I had an opinion on it, we still crashed.

"I find it frustrating that decisions are made on zero evidence or zero conclusions on theories and the burden of costs are passed on to the teams".

"Here, you have to consider from Turn 1 to Turn 4, it's flat out with the corners so you're scrubbing speed so for our engine, it's harder".

He later said he hoped any future battle would be handled "with some more respect on track", although he gave his most telling answer when questioned about Ross Brawn's statement that the crash showed a flaw of modern F1 cars as the loss of downforce encountered when directly behind Verstappen's vehicle made him powerless to prevent a crash. "We don't have that power mode and especially now that from turn one until turn four it's flat-out".

When asked if the team had established new rules, Verstappen simply said: "No".

"I still don't know what is the fastest tire to be honest", continued Verstappen. "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".
