Red Bull roll back the years with Singapore form

Ricciardo's clear warning on Red Bull future

Ricciardo's clear warning on Red Bull future

But while Toro Rosso, Honda's new partners and Red Bull's junior outfit, have predicted a big step forward from the Japanese firm, Honda's recent divorce from McLaren highlights the awkwardness of Red Bull's predicament - especially in terms of their attempts to keep Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo out of Ferrari and Mercedes' clutches.

However, Red Bull later revealed that a mechanical gremlin led to concerns that Ricciardo would not see the chequered flag.

Nico Hulkenberg was seventh fastest in the Renault while it was surprising to see both McLarens of Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne make the top-10, eighth and ninth fastest respectively.

" (On the first lap) I just kind of watched the chaos unfold in front of me".

"Though able to hold off any threat from behind from Valtteri [Bottas], unfortunately he could not attack Lewis ahead".

"I can't win the bloody thing, I'm trying, I'm trying!"

"We like the sport and we are a company that aspires to be as valuable as Ferrari".

The new deal would be similar to that of Red Bull's past partnership with Infiniti, potentially dubbing the duo Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.

Sky Sports understands Renault have served notice on Red Bull that they will cease to supply the former world champions after the end of next season.

Instead, he had to settle for a third consecutive runner-up finish in Singapore, a result he admitted was hard to take given the RB13's earlier pace.

For the record, seven of the last eight races here have been won by the polesitter.

"I don't know whose fault it was, but it was just too close".

Renault's relationship with Red Bull have been fraught since the introduction of the 1.6l V6 engines in 2014. "He did that incredibly well, and managed to nurse the car home for almost another hour and a half".

"Dietrich wants the team to be competitive".

There was no need for an apology from Sainz, who placed a career-best fourth, earning warm congratulations from the pit wall.

Palmer said he hopes the 2021 engine regulations - which many hope could bring back noise, drama and excitement to Formula 1 - to be finalised as early as the end of this year.

"So a podium place missed today and hopefully better luck (at the next race) in Malaysia".
