Colliding Red Bulls free to race but face close scrutiny

Red Bull needs to address Verstappen mistakes – Johansson			Image by Mauger  LAT

Horner also added that Red Bull's decision over which engine to use in 2019 "will be at the earliest is in June", as it evaluates current supplier Renault and Toro Rosso partner Honda.

"It's a tough one - those are the top three teams!" "We are not going to have team orders, but if we find ourselves battling too hard or losing time to the others, especially if maybe there is a faster vehicle coming through, then the team will step in before we start banging wheels again". They have clashed before, but this incident comes as Ricciardo is publicly considering a move to Ferrari or Mercedes for next season. "Everyone was included in the discussion", said Ricciardo.

Ricciardo is in the final year of his contract and has held talks over a new deal with Red Bull.

Verstappen said that, although no specific new rules were in place, he expected the team to be more proactive.

Cape Town - Given the go-ahead to race by Red Bull, Max Verstappen says the team-mates will give one another a "few millimetres more margin" when racing.

"But I think in general they still trust us and we also understand we don't want that to happen again".

While Valtteri Bottas had dominated in the opening session, Hamilton set the pace with a 1m18.259s on the soft compound tire.

Kevin Magnussen backed up his teammate with the eighth-fastest time after escaping from FP1 with only a reprimand for blocking Charles Leclerc at high speed, while Stoffel Vandoorne and Sergio Perez rounded out the top 10.

Neither of the drivers took full blame for the crash. What could the team have done better?

Ricciardo, a victor in China last month, said it was not just about the drivers, however.

Both Verstappen and Ricciardo said in Spain that their relationship is unaffected, and Australian Ricciardo said he can see the team's perspective too. "That's where maybe the team can step in in the future". On the track, their styles differ - Ricciardo more a thinker, Verstappen a spur-of-the-moment doer - but both are terrific overtakers, and to remove that from their armoury could dramatically impact on their popularity.

The drivers visited Red Bull's headquarters in England after the Azerbaijan race and apologized to the rest of the team.

"If it got to the point where there was a banging of wheels again, -especially if the vehicle was faster behind, then you would expect the team to say, 'Let's swap cars and release one of them, '" Ricciardo said.
