Hungarian GP: Max Verstappen and Red Bull unhappy with Renault

Hungarian GP: Max Verstappen and Red Bull unhappy with Renault

"No power, no power", he said, before becoming more irate at the situation: "Can I not just keep going".

The Ferrari driver, who crashed out of last weekend's German Grand Prix while leading, clocked a best lap of one minute and 16.170 seconds to wind up narrowly ahead of Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes by 0.059 seconds and his Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.

Team principal Christian Horner could barely hide his frustration with their engine providers Renault after seeing Verstappen pull up.

Red Bull has already elected to switch to Honda engines next year, but tensions between the team and Renault are mounting in the wake of recent performance and reliability issues.

"Sometimes words betray you", the Briton told Sky Sports F1 television. "I suppose no surprise really", he added. I hate it when people say "bad luck and enjoy your holiday".

"But we pay multi-millions of pounds for these engines, for a first-class product, a state-of-the-art product and you can see it is quite clearly some way below that".

"It's frustrating. I'll let Cyril [Abiteboul, Renault's managing director] come up with the excuses afterwards".

Red Bull and Renault's relationship has been fractured throughout the V6 turbo era, which started in 2014.

With overtaking so hard in Hungary, Ricciardo says qualifying on the front two rows of the grid is a must if Red Bull is to make of the most of its typically stronger race pace relative to qualifying.

Red Bull had fancied their chances in Hungary before the weekend but rain in qualifying dented their hopes, with 20-year-old Verstappen starting seventh and Daniel Ricciardo back in 12th.

The issue compounded Red Bull's misery on what had been a hard race weekend at one of its more favourable tracks - and Verstappen said after the race that both he and teammate Daniel Ricciardo, who finished fourth, deserved better.

It subsequently emerged that the Australian had been unable to take all the new components Red Bull had wanted because Renault made only three of the six items available. The normal strategy would have been to change everything.
