The brutal blunder that cost Ricciardo a podium spot in Spain

Red Bull duo promise to leave 'few millimetres more'

Ricciardo, having run wide through the Turn 9 gravel early on, gradually drifted away from Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen, but dropped a sizeable amount of time during the Virtual Safety Car period.

"I lost a little bit of my front wing and it didn't seem to affect me that much at high speed, but braking into the hairpins it was easier to lock [the tyres]".

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has heavily criticised the intended 2019 rule changes created to improve overtaking, believing the alterations have been "rushed" into.

Ricciardo said he struggled with his vehicle despite recording the fastest lap of the race by over six tenths of a second in the closing stages.

"Shouldn't we be looking at the tracks and the tyre compounds and how they influence races rather than burdening the teams with what will be hundreds of millions in costs?" he continued.

But Horner remained coy on whether the RB14's updates will enable them to change the pecking order at the head of the field. Obviously, Friday paints one picture but you're never really sure what's going to happen. "You never really know until qualie".

"We both put good laps on the Supersofts in Q3".

Meanwhile on the other end of the garage, Max Verstappen stuck to the Supersoft for both runs.

"I always feel quite good on this track and today has been a nice turning point after the first few races where it hasn't gone to plan", he said. With corners in it, it's even harder for us, because we lose even more speed because of the friction from the tires so the engine can't - we just lose more top speed. Speaking after qualifying, he said: "I still don't know what the faster tyre is to be honest". So I hope from now onwards, it just goes in that direction, because I don't think I need to do anything different. "So next time he has to think even more than he did before".

"So a lot of people will be choosing the Soft and the Medium".

"We just don't have that power mode for Q3", Max Verstappen bemoaned. "Our problem is we have got to do a better job on Saturdays, we have got to get further up the grid", Horner said.

"And together with my final lap I couldn't continue after Turn 1 as I had a moment there, so the gap is probably a bit bigger than it should be".
