Abu Dhabi GP: Practice team notes - Red Bull

NEWS STORY
23/11/2018

Max Verstappen: "The car seems to be working really well again, better than expected just like we experienced in Brazil. I felt positive right from the start which usually results in a good Friday performance. It was mostly smooth apart from a little moment I had and bottomed out on the long kerb. Luckily there wasn't too much damage so we carried on as usual. I don't expect these kerbs to be an issue during the race as we should not be going that wide with our line. As we have seen already this season we are good at managing the tyres. I would expect this to be another circuit where tyre management is key to a good result, hopefully it plays into our hands again. Both long runs and short runs look good for the tyres so I'm pleased with how it has gone so far. A good final Friday of 2018, now time to focus on qualifying."

Daniel Ricciardo: "It was a pretty good Friday and it went well for both cars. Hopefully it will stay the same tomorrow as it's all very close at the moment. The tyres are certainly degrading in the heat which I think will help us. The hypersoft shows a bit more wear on the fronts and the ultra and super has more on the rears. We're normally in as good a shape as anyone, if not better, with the tyres so it will be important to stay on top of that and take advantage during the race. We looked strong on the long runs today and although there is still a bit to find on the short runs, the exciting thing is that there's more to come from the car. Since Monaco I've been hoping for a strong weekend and now this is my last chance with the Team, I want it even more. It's only Friday so I don't know what's possible in the race yet, but hopefully we can be somewhere on the podium if we perform well in qualifying."

"@ Elf Team Tyrrell

Thought Horner's jibe at Abiteboul in the press conferece was cheap and nasty, basically suggested the guy used to be the tea boy."

"“The car seems to be working really well”........with that crap Renault engine, sorry I mean power unit. What a W?@&r. Make you mind up Max, are Renault the cause of all Red Bull’s problems or not. Seems to me like multiple world championships AND mixing it with the current world champions that it isn’t the engine, sorry power unit, that is the problem. Maybe Max AND Red Bull need to show some respect towards Renault. Red Bull and Max V...... odious people. "
