Why Ricciardo is facing two more years of punching walls

Formula One World Championship

However, Ricciardo's current teammate Max Verstappen has revealed that following his angry reactions to this weekend's mechanical failure, some "jokes" have been made about him within the Red Bull garage.

"I'm sure [Ricciardo] will be having a word with his future employers about it - it's so frustrating to keep losing him from races at the moment", Horner said.

"You can't blame him, the frustration that is in him", said Horner.

"It looks like the identical power issue from Bahrain".

Daniel Ricciardo let his frustration get the better of him after once again having his Red Bull auto fail on him in the US Formula 1 Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.

The Dutchman endured a disappointing first few months of the season and across the first six races was involved in at least one incident each weekend that cost him, and others, dearly.

There must be frustrations obviously within him.

"He has just taken his frustration out in his room by putting his fist through a wall and you can totally relate to that".

"Thankfully we have one in more our allocation that we introduced in Sochi, meaning we should avoid a penalty in Mexico next weekend. He knows it is not the team's issue, he knows it is nothing we have done and he can not get his head around why it keeps happening to him". It was the other way around past year with Max.

Horner couldn't stop himself from sinking the boot into the Aussie, with a sly dig at his driver's move to the factory Renault team next year, who are presently supplying powertrains to Red Bull.

"I think both guys can be strong in Mexico", Horner added. I think the engines will be a little closer because it is a little bit more hard for them to breathe.

It continued Ricciardo's tough spell and means he has still not been back on the podium since winning May's Monaco Grand Prix. At that point we thought it would be a two-stop race, but we then converted to a one-stop as Max was doing such a great job of managing his tyres.
