Ricciardo to get pre-race 'talking to'?

Ricciardo to get pre-race 'talking to'?

Lewis Hamilton headed Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen in a difficult-to-read second practice at the Spanish Grand Prix. I chipped away at my lap time by a few hundredths but it wasn't enough and they put in a few belters at the end.

"Friday paints one picture but you are never really sure about what is going to happen", said Ricciardo.

Asked about so-called team orders being applied, Verstappen - who is seen as the team's future and, unlike Ricciardo, has a long-term contract - indicated that would depend on the particular circumstances.

A redesign of the car's mid-section was the point when Red Bull really started to unlock the potential of last year's auto, but it remains to be seen whether it can repeat such a big gain at an earlier stage of this season.

Expanding on his performance, Ricciardo said: "It was just a bit tricky to drive so". Remember that stern talking to - complete with finger-wagging - you received; the one that went "don't touch this" and "don't do that" because she'd know, and "woe betide you" if you disobeyed? With the laps we put in, I thought we would have been a couple of tenths from pole not, what was it, six or seven.

He later said he hoped any future battle would be handled "with some more respect on track", although he gave his most telling answer when questioned about Ross Brawn's statement that the crash showed a flaw of modern F1 cars as the loss of downforce encountered when directly behind Verstappen's vehicle made him powerless to prevent a crash. "But it was an accumulation of events and it was important to address all areas", he said. "Look, we've attacked before and kept it clean, so we just need to do that". There was a build-up and maybe a way that we could have responded better, whether it was releasing a auto or something. "So a lot of things were talked about". Ricciardo appeared more at ease with discussing the incident and dropped several suggestions he did not agree with Horner's verdict of 50-50 blame between both drivers.

"I don't feel guilty but I understand what they needed to do".

Nevertheless, after the two drivers qualified within 0.002s of each other in fifth and sixth on the Barcelona grid, Ricciardo is expecting rules of engagement to be laid down in Sunday's pre-race briefing.
