Red Bull's Horner: Verstappen now primed for title fight

Once considered an outside contender for the title, after two wins in the first six races, Ricciardo's season has unravelled at an alarming rate and even with the Brazilian and Abu Dhabi Grands Prix to go, he knows he can finish no better than sixth in the drivers' standings in his final campaign for Red Bull, before heading to pastures new with Renault. That has enabled us to go head to head, lock out the front row, pole position, second position, front row of the grid, and win the grand prix in a dominant fashion.

"I will be doing the last two races", a smiling Ricciardo said in a video posted on his Instagram page. I'm not superstitious or any of that bulls--, but the car's cursed.

Ricciardo will join Renault for next season and on Monday following his retirement in Mexico City had suggested that his replacement for 2019 in Pierre Gasly could drive the auto instead. "I don't have any more words". I ain't about that other life.

"I just wanted to say g'day and firstly address a few things from Mexico", he said. I think he's got a very good racing brain as well. More lows unfortunately. It's been frustrating, I won't lie.

In a sense it's been a season of development for Verstappen who found himself on the receiving end of a lot of criticism in the early part of the year on the back of a series of incidents and mistakes that led many to call into question not only his driving but also his ability to learn from his mistakes. I look to myself and all the guys who work their butts off to give it two more cracks before we see each other off.

"I'll let [Pierre] Gasly drive the auto".

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner is confident Max Verstappen is ready to fight for the drivers' championship if given the auto to do so.

"But really, since Montreal, he's been doing some incredible races and I think with experience that was really the only missing piece".
