Verstappen's father reveals Ricciardo feud with son


//

Max Verstappen's father Jos has taken a shot at his son's Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo, criticising the Australian for his actions during the Mexican Grand Prix.

After a season filled with disappointments, Ricciardo was ecstatic when he gained pole position, and the Verstappen camp was left angered by his celebrations.

"I was not really happy myself, but I spoke to (Max) before bedtime," Verstappen told Ziggo Sport.

"I tried to calm him down a bit, he was particularly angry because the car was out of order.

"That pole position is nice, but winning is of course much more important."

Verstappen's father went on to say that not only was his son angry at losing pole position, but losing it to his Australian teammate in particular.

"He was especially annoyed by missing the pole and by the car, but also by Ricciardo," Verstappen said.

"He celebrated his pole position with an exuberance as if he had become world champion.

"(Max) was very angry. He was greatly exasperated and wanted only one thing, that was winning the race." 

Unfortunately for Ricciardo, his excitement from gaining pole position was short-lived after an engine failure caused him to have his eighth retirement of the season.
