Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen were gutted after Red Bull, once again fell out of contention compared to Ferrari and Mercedes.

F1 next heads to Monaco in two weeks' time and Horner hopes Red Bull can take advantage of the famous Monte Carlo street circuit's twists and turns to be in the hunt for pole and victory.

"I don't really know what I could have done more with what we had", he commented afterwards.

Ricciardo said he struggled with his auto despite recording the fastest lap of the race by over six tenths of a second in the closing stages. "Shouldn't we be looking at the tracks and the tire compounds and how they influence races, rather than burdening the teams with what will be hundreds of millions in costs?"

This explains why Ricciardo was frustrated as he expected to be higher in the pecking order. Obviously, Friday paints one picture but you're never really sure what's going to happen.

"I knew we were getting very close to getting restarted and suddenly he [Stroll] slowed down and with the cold tyres I couldn't avoid him anymore you know, sliding on the fronts".

The Australian and his teammate Max Verstappen had looked firmly in the frame to at least challenge for a possible front row start after the first runs in the all-important Q3 session.

"I think we both put in a strong performance on the supers [in Q3]", he continued. "It wasn't the preferred tyre, that is why I went for the Soft tyre at the end of Q3". "I saw Sebastian approaching but I knew I had relatively fresh tyres so it would be hard for him to overtake, this allowed me to manage the situation quite well".

Their battle at the Malaysian Grand Prix in 2016 was close but clean as Ricciardo went on to take the win at Sepang, while Verstappen's wayward Red Bull eliminated the Australian from the Hungarian Grand Prix after just three corners past year, so there is some previous, but none of the other top teams have been squeaky clean in that sense either. I don't think many people will actually choose the Supersoft [for the race]. "We don't have that power mode".

"I think a lot of people will choose a soft and a medium", he decided. "Our problem is we have got to do a better job on Saturdays, we have got to get further up the grid", Horner said.

"Add together with my final lap I couldn't continue".
