Red Bull respond to Ricciardo's claims he's 'done' for 2018

Verstappen went on to dominate the race from the front while Ricciardo retired with a hydraulics failure as he was running in second place with ten laps remaining.

Verstappen's day was the opposite to Ricciardo's, with the 21-year-old Dutchman angered by vehicle problems that prevented him from becoming Formula One's youngest ever pole sitter and suffering a sleepless night. Infuriated, Verstappen returned to the track determined to get the win and defend his 2017 race victory.

"You reflect on the work that goes on from previous year to now".

The DNF (did not finish) result is Ricciardo's eighth of a long season, which saw his power unit fail on five separate occasions. It's strong run in a season that began with mistakes that cost him potential victories and drew a reprimand for unsafe driving moves. With Max Verstappen going on to win and Ricciardo still waiting for his first podium outside his two victories this season, the Australian was in a dejected mood after the race.

He was also the victor of this race when Hamilton clinched his fourth world title in 2017.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has praised their engine supplier Renault for the engine they delivered, as Red Bull driver Max Verstappen emerged victorious with quite a big margin in Mexico.

"I don't even think frustration is the word anymore", said Ricciardo.

Sania delivered the child early Tuesday morning, here and both mother and child were well. "Today I will tell you a secret". While Sania is now on a break, she is looking at making a return to the tennis court for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

A dejected Daniel Ricciardo feels there's nearly no point finishing out the Formula One season after his "cursed" Red Bull auto dealt him an eighth race retirement this season.

Race day began with such promise for Ricciardo.

The 1-2 start will be the first for Red Bull since the start of the hybrid engine era in 2014.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel must take the chequered flag to stand any chance of denying Hamilton the title, but he failed to trouble the top of the order here. I'm not superstitious or any of that bulls--, but the car's cursed.

Hamilton wrapped up the title with two races left.

Perhaps the most pivotal point of the term came at Hockenheim on July 22, two weeks after Silverstone, when Vettel had appeared set to further increase his championship lead only to see his rival instead seize an advantage he would never cede.
