JUNE 28 Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain and Mercedes GP looks on in the Paddock during previews ahead of the Formula One Grand Prix of Austria at Red Bull Ring

Last weekend I was in front and now he is in front. However, they now face a tight fight with Ferrari and Red Bull.

Ricciardo's retirement means Red Bull has lost ground to new constructors' championship leader Ferrari, which completed the podium with Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel.

The Red Bull team principal, Christian Horner, has described Mercedes's decision to have their chief strategist, James Vowles, publicly apologise for a strategy error at the Austrian Grand Prix as Vowles throwing himself under the bus to motivate Lewis Hamilton. Red Bull now sits as the outlier, 58 points off the lead to Mercedes' 10, but as Team Principal Christian Horner believes, the Milton Keynes-based outfit should be at the front with the form its shown so far this season.

Verstappen has four career GP victories despite having never won pole position in F1.

"I couldn't have chosen a better race to do it, so very happy", the Dutchman, cheered on by an estimated 20,000 countrymen in the crowd, added.


"Overtake him, mate, just overtake him".

"It's quite hard without knowing the intricacies of other teams, but the one thing you have to do as a team is win as a team and lose as a team and that's why we don't often - or hardly at all - in success or failure talk about individuals, because that puts an unfair amount of scrutiny and pressure on that individual".

"It was all about keeping the slip, the temperatures under control, particularly the left rear".

"Max did a very mature job in managing the tires, particularly through Turns 8 and 9, the last two, the fast-right handers". Verstappen said he had just tried to do his own race as first Bottas and then Hamilton disappeared from the reckoning.

"I'm not too impressed to be honest", he told reporters.


"It's always hard to know the intricacies of other teams but I think the one thing you have to do as a team is win as a team and lose as a team", said Horner, speaking at the Red Bull factory.

Horner also paid tribute to his team for pulling off a high-pressure double stacked stop during the virtual safety vehicle period that was called when Valtteri Bottas retired.

"It's a dream result", added a jubilant Horner.

"What is going on", Verstappen was quizzed by the Red Bull pit wall.

Nine races into the 2018 Formula 1 campaign, the series' top manufacturers all have three wins respectively.


"I was going in front in Paul Ricard, he was going in front the race before that".
