'Losing their mind': Daniel Ricciardo's big swipe at Max Verstappen

Plenty to digest for Ricciardo after first test with Renault F1 team

Plenty to digest for Ricciardo after first test with Renault F1 team

"I think Honda have had a good winter and certainly they are reducing that gap significantly, but of course what you don't know is what the others have done".

"While it was on it was OK", Ricciardo said about his rear wing.

After being backed by Red Bull from F3 in 2008 all the way through to F1, Ricciardo dismissed suggestions that he felt disappointed by the way in which his time with the team ended, but the Australian joked that he often wonders what might have happened had his compatriot Mark Webber retired a year earlier.

The former Red Bull driver, who moved to Renault at the end of last season, said he felt "quite encouraged" with the laps he did on Tuesday before the failure.

Now in Renault's yellow-and-black livery, Ricciardo said he made that choice to avoid the "risks" of staying put.

Mercedes, Red Bull and Toro Rosso all ran on Wednesday, Alfa Romeo on Thursday, while Haas preceded Renault by running in Barcelona on Friday.

The other was his fear of becoming frustrated for never meeting the high expectations with Red Bull.

The Mountaineers shot 35 percent from the field, 22 percent from beyond the arc and 67 percent from the free throw line. The lead stayed in double figures the rest of the way, as K-State swept the series for the first time since 2013.

"At Red Bull, every year it's like OK, this is probably going to be our year", he said. "Obviously my reference now when I'm talking to the team is Red Bull but his is last year's auto so both points of view is quite interesting for the team to hear".

Red Bull finished third in the constructors' standings last season with 419 points.

"I think (Hulkenberg) having done this so many years, I think that helps ..."

Daniel Ricciardo has taken a not-so-subtle swipe at his former teammate Max Verstappen.

Last season, Ricciardo and Verstappen crashed into one another at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, and in 2016 Ricciardo called Verstappen's driving "amateur" after he bumped him off the track on the first lap of the Hungarian GP.

"The way the vehicle used the tyres I thought was pretty encouraging. There's less risk of someone losing their mind".
