Verstappen a ‘ F****ng sore loser’ – Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo force out from the Hungarian Grand Prix on the opening lap of the 70-lap contest when his team-mate Max Verstappen drove into the side of the Ricciardo’s RB13 at the turn 2.

Following the incident Max found himself handed a 10-second pit penalty for the erroneous driving, which will have been little comfort to Ricciardo – whose tweet after qualifying seemed ominously prescient.

The Red Bull duo made a good launch from the fifth and sixth respectively, both overtook Lewis Hamilton on the turn one.

Following Ricciardo tried to pass hia teammate into turn two to move into fourth before Verstappen hit him as they came through the next turn.

Lap one DNF, flashed an angry reaction from Ricciardo over the team radio.

“Someone hit me. Is that who I think it was?” Ricciardo asked his race engineer.

“Yes,” came the reply from Red Bull, and then Ricciardo did not mince his words.

“F****ng sore loser,” Ricciardo exclaimed.

Ricciardo was left to fume some more when asked by reporters at the circuit about the collision between the two Red Bulls.

“That was amateur to say the least,” Ricciardo said.

“It’s not like he was trying to pass. He doesn’t like people passing him. I didn’t really know what happened. It’s just frustrating – it was not even an overtaking move. It was an emotional response.”

The Australian also called for his 19-year-old teammate to take full responsibility for the error, hinting the pair might have further issues with each other if the Dutchman does not accept the incident was his fault.

“In that moment the team said sorry and they will speak to Max,” Ricciardo added.

“Let’s see if he acts his age or like a man about it and admits the error.

“I could go and call him names after the accident but if he starts bringing in other excuses in then we will have a problem.”
