Daniel Ricciardo reveals tense moments with teammate Max Verstappen

Red Bull’s F1 driver DANIEL Ricciardo revealed the tense moments, he had with his teammate Max Verstappen at the Hungarian Grand Prix in July.

The Aussie had to retire in Budapest after colliding with Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen on the opening lap. Ricciardo started the race in sixth while  Verstappen started fifth — but after passing the Dutchman on the second corner the youngster rammed into Ricciardo’s RB13 and it was game over.

The West Australian was furious, slamming the move as amateur & calling Verstappen a f***ing sore loser”.  Ricciardo told ESPN.

“It was just a whole lot of adrenaline and anger.

“It became more, not through my fault.

“The marshal was like pulling me off the track like: ‘Come on, you’ve gotta get off the track!’

“And I was like: ‘Don’t touch me!’

“I purposely wanted to wait until Max came round so I could give him the bird.

“I wanted to do more, trust me, I wanted to throw my helmet at him.

“But I’m a good sport, you know, I don’t do those things.”

Asked what his most awkward moment of the year was, Ricciardo said: “Probably when Max gave me a beer after the Budapest race.

“He was like, ‘Sorry’ and I was like, ‘Please don’t tell me he’s only going to give me a beer and think that’s going to make up for it.’ Then he said, ‘We’ll talk after the meeting.’

“But the initial thing of him giving me a beer is kind of awkward.”

“Probably when Max gave me a beer after the Budapest race,” he explained, when asked about the most awkward moment of 2017.
