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.

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.

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.

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.

After some friction with Verstappen , Ricciardo ’ s had a smooth transition with his new teammate Nico Hulkenberg. Although still getting to know each other, the Australian is enjoying being partnered with a more senior driver this time around. “I’m honestly just happy to be the younger driver in the team again.

“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.”
