The Australian, who has been racing for Red Bull Racing since 2014 and two years before for Toro Rosso, is joining the Renault factory team this season. His successor Pierre Gasly has just over a season of experience in the premier class, and Max Verstappen is still just 21 years old. On the development side, a disadvantage for Red Bull?

"I do not think so," explains team boss Christian Horner, who sees Verstappen in this regard as a big plus. "Max knows what he wants from the car and his feedback is very clear," reveals Horner, adding, "Behind the scenes, he works very hard." The Dutchman spent "hours" in the simulator - and had Ricciardo in this regard anyway something ahead. "Daniel did not like this part of working with the engineers," Horner reveals with regard to the services in the simulator. Verstappen's attitude to work is very different. She was "very similar" to the attitude that Sebastian Vettel showed at his time at Red Bull .

For this reason, no one at Red Bull fear that the team without Ricciardo 2019 "get somewhere less clues, data or information". And Verstappen does not have to work for two this year anyway.
