Ricciardo slapped with five-place grid penalty

"He was irritated because he missed out on pole and because of the vehicle, but also because of Ricciardo's exuberance celebrating pole", Verstappen Sr said. "The vehicle was obviously smoking but they shot foam up the exhaust and as it solidifies in the turbo its terminated".

It had to be changed ahead of this weekend's Interlagos race, where Ricciardo will get a five-place grid penalty. "It ruined the turbo".

"The other turbo that Daniel has in his pool was on the engine that failed in Austin", he revealed, "and Renault was saying that every time they have run a turbo when they have had a failure like that, they normally stop after 400km. That's really important around here, but we'll definitely try to score a podium".

"I got a call last week, and the team made me aware of it", Ricciardo said. At the moment I'm not looking forward to next year, I'm just looking forward to having a break first and then getting fully ready for the year coming. "But it is what it is".

Daniel Ricciardo clarified his post-Mexican Grand Prix comments in which the Red Bull driver expressed his frustrations on the back of another retirement.

While Ricciardo has continued to suffer bad luck, Horner said his team-mate Max Verstappen seems to have been fortunate to have finished the race in Mexico without problems.

And my team is talking to them, to analyse the things. "It is true that we had detected it for a long time and from time to time it bothered me".

Verstappen clocked the fastest time during Thursday's practice, but couldn't back it up and found himself some 0.785 seconds adrift of the pacesetter Sebastian Vettel on Friday.

"And of course everything little thing that comes with it makes me even more angry".

"Unfortunately the altitude is not high enough here", he said. I think we could have been a lot closer to them if I didn't have traffic in the last two sectors. That proved to be the case in qualifying at Interlagos, with Max Verstappen the leading RB14 in fifth.

"It's a bit of a shame that we missed a little bit of running initially and then everything is a little bit rushed", Verstappen said.

Asked if they can challenge the top two in 2019, a cautious Verstappen replied: "I hope, but you always have to wait and see if we build a good vehicle again". "Then you are out of sync - everybody's doing long runs, you are on a short run, you have traffic and stuff like that". We'll just try to make the best of the weekend.

"So I think the result in the second practice was not the real picture".
