Colliding Red Bulls free to race in Spain but face close scrutiny

Formula One F1- Spanish Grand Prix

The two Red Bulls started the race in P5 and P6, and stayed there until Kimi Raikkonen's mid-race retirement, but they had the pace for the early stages.

Internally, the team has improved the position and shape of some of its ancillaries in order that airflow through the sidepods be improved. From turn seven until turn 10 is also straight now, because turn nine is flat, so it's all a bit more painful for us and, especially in Q3 when they (Mercedes and Ferrari) also add this extra power for that session and it all gets a bit harder.

"I find it frustrating that decisions are made on zero evidence or zero conclusions on theories and the burden of costs are passed on to the teams". What the engineers could have done better or different, so everyone was involved in the process. That was an accumulation of events, and it was important to address all areas.

"I chipped away at my lap time by a few hundredths but it wasn't enough".

But he's confident there is more to come from them as Red Bull fine-tunes the setup to harness the improved performance after an encouraging second session. Obviously, Friday paints one picture but you're never really sure what's going to happen.

"There's no guarantee but that was one thing we certainly talked about".

The incident occurred when Ricciardo drove into the back of Verstappen, who moved to the left to defend having previously drifted to the right.

In his final hours at the Basel clinic, Prof Goodall enjoyed his favourite dinner: fish and chips and cheesecake. At a press conference on Wednesday, he said he was surprised by the public interest in his case.

Both drivers were reprimanded by stewards after the race and Ricciardo accepted that.

A redesign of the car's mid-section was the point when Red Bull really started to unlock the potential of last year's auto, but it remains to be seen whether it can repeat such a big gain at an earlier stage of this season.

"I don't feel guilty but I understand what they needed to do". I don't think we're necessarily struggling in the front or the rear but overall downforce is always good. "I don't know", he said. So, you lose all downforce, all everything.

When Verstappen was asked if he agreed with Horner's assessment that both drivers were to blame, he said: "It doesn't matter".

"Even for me it was a guess, so a bit tricky".

"Look", he insisted, "we've attacked before and kept it clean, so we just need to do that".
