Max Verstappen keeps Red Bull on top in Germany

"Both Ferrari and Red Bull were very quick today and I think it will be very similar tomorrow and on Sunday".

Ricciardo was the first retirement from the German Grand Prix after starting the race from the back of the grid, after taking an engine penalty. I heard something was amusing, basically. "Three's a lot. Maybe I'm on a beach somewhere in three".

"On lap 29 I heard something odd when I was downshifting for Turn 6 and then once I accelerated out of the corner I lost power and the engine started to sound pretty sick. It hurts, it always does, but what do you do?"

That has led to suggestions that Red Bull is stalling on making a Ricciardo announcement, because it has nothing to gain by setting that process in motion and helping rivals such as Renault to sort out their line-ups.

It's the second time in three races Ricciardo has retired after a malfunctioning gearbox cut short his Austrian Grand Prix at the start of the month. Max Verstappen was third on the timesheets, a further 0.189s behind his teammate Ricciardo. The lost running left him with only 18 laps to his name compared to 39 for second-placed Lewis Hamilton and 46 for Sebastian Vettel, but the ability to fix the problem will offer Verstappen encouragement. I was really struggling in the traffic and just had, even off the start, just had no grip.

The incident led to Kuwait's expulsion of the Philippine ambassador and the withdrawal of its own ambassador from Manila. Duterte asked the estimated 276,000 Filipino workers in the Gulf nation to return home.

"But then once I got clear air we were able to do some low 18s, which seemed competitive at the time".

"The priority today was to get a good race auto as the reality is that qualifying will be irrelevant for me and we're going to be passing a fair few cars on Sunday", he said.

"Hopefully I can go and win in a week's time before we all head off for the summer break".

Ricciardo, who is off contract at year's end, is expected to resign a new deal with Red Bull despite whispers of talks with Ferrari.

Ricciardo's penalty is because his team had to make multiple changes to the hybrid system, the energy store and the electronics unit for a combined total of 20 grid positions.
