Max Verstappen qualifying fourth, unexpectedly splitting the Ferraris, was a good result for Red Bull. Pierre Gasly dropping out in Q1, sat in the pits as the chequered flag fell, was not.

The five-time grand prix victor continued a faultless day in Free Practice 2 and set a lap time of 1:23.400 seconds which was beaten by only the two Mercedes of Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.

"The chassis - we know there's nothing wrong with the Red Bull chassis, there hasn't been for years". Putting in just one run, the Frenchman was budged out during the first part of the session, and will start a lowly 17th for the first race.

"It will be tough, I think there were only four over takes previous year so it will hard starting where we are". "Starting from where we are it's going to be a hard one, but we need to stay positive and for me tomorrow it will be all about taking the experience with the vehicle and hopefully we can recover some positions".

Mueller, in U.S. court filing, says multiple probes continue
The joint filing by Mueller's office and Gates' attorneys comes amid signs the Russian Federation investigation is winding down. It's unclear if the delay of Gates' sentencing is reflection of Mueller's timeline or the status of the other investigations.

"We've got an exciting new partnership with Honda starting this weekend so it's off to a positive start, but we have to keep expectations realistic", he said at the F1 season launch in Melbourne on Wednesday.

"The rumours are they found 15 kilowatts over the winter - that's potentially half the deficit to Mercedes and Ferrari".

"That will be hard because Red Bull is "Team Verstappen", but he has his chance and it's up to him to stand out at this level". "We need to stay positive and tomorrow will be about learning about the vehicle and hopefully gaining some positions".
