On the Wednesday after the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, the Red Bull staff were all gathered together in their headquarters in Milton Keynes.

Many drivers were struggling to make the super-soft work at all on one qualifying lap and it looked as if teams would be trying to minimise running on what would before the weekend have been expected to be the qualifying tyre. While this team have made it an article of faith to let their drivers tussle wheel-to-wheel, a litany of misjudgments, with Verstappen failing to complete any of the first four races, has tested their patience. Red Bull showed they should be a real threat this weekend by staying right behind the Silver Arrow of Hamilton - but it seems there's plenty of work to do for Ferrari, especially on Raikkonen's vehicle.

"He (Horner) will say it if he thinks he's got a competitive advantage in that area and now it's being erased", said Szafnauer, whose team finished fourth overall past year.

Some observers have suggested that certain teams were keen to see a rule shake-up that would force a reset with new concepts for 2019.

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

Verstappen did run wide a few times, but it was team-mate Daniel Ricciardo who fared worse, crashing in Free Practice One.

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

For all their scrapes and skirmishes, Ricciardo and Verstappen, who mark their two-year anniversary as team-mates this weekend, have maintained a plausible impression of liking each other. As Ricciardo tried to force his way past Verstappen at the end of the front straightaway, Verstappen closed up and Ricciardo couldn't avoid the collision.

"We all talked about it, from all different points of views", Ricciardo said. What could the team have done better? "That's where maybe the team can step in in the future".

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