Verstappen patient while Red Bull plays catch-up

But when it was suggested to Red Bull team boss Christian Horner that this ruling had proved particularly costly for his squad because it had a more sophisticated device, he replied: "I don't believe so".

Ricciardo slammed into the barrier during qualifying on Saturday and his Red Bull RB13 auto suffered rear end damage and prompted the team to change the gearbox.

At the season opening race in Melbourne, Verstappen challenged for a podium place, and provided a hard obstruction for Lewis Hamilton after the Mercedes' pit-stop - something that would prove ultimately pivotal in the Mercedes' attempt to win the race.

"We don't know what yet, but we have got an investigation happening with our people, including CAMS, who obviously look after the track from a race organisation point of view and a race control point of view".

Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo of Australia steers his auto during the Australian Formula One Grand Prix in Melbourne, Australia, Sunday, March 26, 2017.

Red Bull said that they are working on upgrades to debut in China and Bahrain, while improvements for the Renault power unit might take until May's Monaco Grand Prix to arrive.

Lawmakers' Letters to Constituents on Health Care, Fact-Checked
I know personally how these ill-conceived, callous, short-sighted, ideological disasters will impact the American people. A voucher system would dramatically increase health care costs and risks for current and future retirees.


It just went from bad to worse for the amiable Red Bull driver who crashed in qualifying, copped a grid penalty, started the race from pit lane, before his auto stopped on lap 29 of his 58-lap home GP. It felt awesome to be out on the track this morning, I just felt I was back in my happy place and it was cool to already see so many fans on a Friday. We had an issue in the warm up lap and a separate issue in the race.

"I was really trying to keep the pressure on ... and got a bit lucky when Lewis came out (from his pit stop) in traffic". If I'm going to look on the bright side Max seemed to do a relatively good pace. "I'm disappointed but I'll wake up tomorrow and be fine".

"But it's the first race so hopefully we'll move forward from this".

The new regulations, resulting in wider, faster cars, appear to have helped Ferrari catch up to Mercedes.

Super subs, Stroll's shoulders and pink helmets... it is the Australian Grand Prix Debrief!

"I think we want to progress".
