How did it go so wrong for Ricciardo?

How did it go so wrong for Ricciardo? No longer a future world champion, but disillusioned and headed to an also-ran team. Here is the downward spiral Daniel Ricciardo has taken.

Daniel and Max take to the skies ahead of the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix. A quick visit to Hangar 7 in Slazburg before a round trip on the Red Bull Douglas DC-6.

Verstappen hit back at Massa by pointing out he had himself been involved in a similar incident with Sergio Pérez at the 2014 Canadian Grand Prix.[41]. Verstappen tried to overtake Lewis Hamilton around the outside of Turn 6 but ran wide and off the track, resulting in Ricciardo overtaking him.

Daniel Ricciardo has denied suggestions by the father of teammate Max Verstappen that he rubbed his son's face in it after taking pole in Mexico, when cameras caught the Australian celebrating the preliminary victory.

Ricciardo pipped Verstappen for pole last race and the result didn’t seem to sit well with the Dutch driver, who was seen moping around after missing out on yet another opportunity to snare his place at the top of the grid for the first time in his F1 career and become the youngest driver in history to hold pole.

Cameras then captured Ricciardo celebrating the rare feat in a season that has been plagued by bad luck and reports of a fallout with Red Bull management emanating from his move to Renault.

Verstappen to perform 'two days of public service' for Ocon clash - FIA Max Verstappen was ordered to perform two days of public service for his violent behaviour towards Esteban Ocon following Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix, the FIA announced. The Dutchman pushed the Frenchman three times and threatened to punch him in the drivers weighing room after the race during which they collided, an incident which cost Verstappen the lead of the race. He finished second for Red Bull behind world champion Lewis Hamilton while Force India's Ocon was given a 10-seconds stop-go penalty.

Johannes Franciscus "Jos" Verstappen (born 4 March 1972) is a Dutch former racing driver. After his F1 career Jos Verstappen has won races in A1 Grand Prix and Le Mans Series LMP2 races (winning the 24 hours of Le Mans LMP2 class in 2008).

The Mercedes chairman has declared Ricciardo and Max Verstappen should be forced to cough up for the damage their aggressive driving caused to their RB14 cars. Red Bull is still reeling from the collision on lap 40 during Monday morning’ s Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku which saw both Ricciardo

Ricciardo failed to translate his qualifying success into the main race when technical problems stopped him from finishing, while Verstappen crossed the line in first place, leaving the Dutchman to have the last laugh.

Speaking to Dutch media, Verstappen’s father declared his son was offended by what he perceived to be the Australian’s over-the-top celebration.

“I was not really happy myself, but I spoke to him (Max) before bedtime,” Jos Verstappen told Ziggo Sport.

“I tried to calm him down a bit, he was particularly angry because the car was out of order. That pole position is nice, but winning is of course much more important.

Ricciardo recovers from Mexico GP failure

Ricciardo recovers from Mexico GP failure Daniel Ricciardo says he owes it to himself and Red Bull not to give up on his frustrating Formula One season with the finish line in sight. Australian Formula One ace Daniel Ricciardo has recovered from the disappointment of his Mexican Grand Prix retirement and vowed to finish the season. The 29-year-old admitted frustration got the better of him when he said there was "no point" competing in his final two races with Red Bull before crossing to Renault next season. "I will be doing the last two races," a smiling Ricciardo said in a video posted on his Instagram page.

Verstappen ' s defensive strategy of only making his move once he sees where the attacker wants to go was always going to end in tears one day. These two drivers are teammates Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo , and both are really talented and competitive drivers. They've collided in the past

“He was especially annoyed by missing the pole and by the car, but also by Ricciardo.

“He celebrated his pole position with an exuberance as if he had become world champion. He (Max) was very angry.

“He was greatly exasperated and wanted only one thing, that was winning the race.”

Ricciardo refuted those claims made by Verstappen snr in the lead to the Brazilian Grand Prix on Monday morning (AEST), saying he never intended to upset anybody but understood why his teammate was frustrated.

“I am not aware of that (Jos’s comments about Max). I was aware Max was p***ed after quali, the press conference and that you could tell he was not too pleased,” Ricciardo said.

“I don’t think it was really directed at me. I think anyone missing their first pole by such a small margin is going to be p***ed. Even if I missed that pole, if I was in his shoes, even if it was not for my first pole, I would still be upset. That is the competitor in us.

“I didn’t see it as anything personal, like I was rubbing it in. I was super happy because it has been a tough year. I was the underdog in that fight for pole. So to do it, I was pretty stoked.

“From his point of view, he was the favourite all weekend, topping all the sessions, and to get pipped by your teammate by two hundredths (of a second), it is going to p*** you off. That is just the competitor.”
