Red Bull pair 'will apologise' to team staff

Had talks with Red Bull only’ Daniel Ricciardo plays down rumours over Ferrari link

"I have watched a few replays and the only thing we can both say is sorry to the team..."

It was the Mercedes driver's first victory since the US Grand Prix last October.

"But they are driving the vehicle at the end of the day and they've just got to ensure that if they are going wheel-to-wheel they allow each other enough space".

"In Barcelona they will be fine, I have no doubt about that", Horner told Sky Sports. This is the last thing we wanted. We are not apportioning blame one way or the other, but they are both to blame for this.

"We always let the drivers race, we don't have a number one, we don't have a number two, but we expect responsibilities from the drivers side" Marko concluded. They have been reminded that they are part of a team, they are highly-paid individuals with the team's interest at heart.

"But they are both in the dog house".

The pair were called to see the stewards after the race and blamed equally for the incident.

Both men apologised in the aftermath of the race, but with no points to show from their visit to Baku, Red Bull - who have shown great promise so far - are already cut adrift in the standings.

"For me, it is 70 percent Verstappen and 30 percent Ricciardo", he added. He said the crash was "unnecessary" but held no grudge against his Australian team-mate.

Air pollution levels 'dangerously high' in many countries
Outdoor air pollution was meanwhile linked to 4.2 million fatalities annually. In contrast, many Chinese cities are improving. It is death by breath in India's top cities.

"I will personally apologise to the team", said 28-year-old Ricciardo. We lost a lot of points today, unnecessarily.

The two drivers crashed out of the race after a coming together at Turn 1 as they fought for position in the closing stages.

Ricciardo was running in fifth place, having just been overcut by Verstappen in the pits, when he got into the tow down the 2km pit-straight at the Baku City Street Circuit.

"The tow was very strong so as soon as (Daniel) was in front I was catching up again and we were pretty similar speed". Our drivers have been racing hard, on the limit, but in our mind fairly, but then unfortunately this incident has happened.

"Before that it was hard racing but fair, we gave each other space".

Despite some close action earlier in the race - which included the pair brushing wheels - Horner said there had been no intention to step in and impose team orders prior to their costly retirement. "What happened after that is not good", he said.

In the week leading up to the Grand Prix, he told reporters: "'You learn from your mistakes but that doesn't mean you have to drive slower, actually faster, but maybe a little bit more in control".

"We will take measures to guarantee it won't happen again". It's not only down to us, we speak to the team as well what we will do in the future.
