Formula One: Horner blasts Renault after Verstappen retirement

His radio message to the team was broadcast over the world feed and contained several expletives which were bleeped out.

Speaking after the race, he said: "On the summer break - I test Tuesday and then I will escape Wednesday and get far away from race cars for a few weeks".

Verstappen, the youngest ever race victor in Formula One history, has an army of Dutch fans with thousands travelling to Budapest to cheer him on. I don't care if this f-- engine blows up.

"Honestly at the moment it is hard to accept", he added to Sky Sports F1, "and I was very angry on the radio, there was a lot of beeping out there..." "It's cruel luck for Max, an engine issue".

"I was happy today, happy to finish and get some points and have a race I feel I maximised".

Speaking to Sky, Horner said: "I am not going to get drawn into saying too much, but we pay multi millions of pounds for these engines, for a first class product, a state of the art product, and you can see it is quite clearly some way below that".

'I'll let Cyril (Abiteboul, Renault's team boss) come up with the excuses afterwards'.

Ahead of the French Grand Prix in June, Red Bull announced that they will be terminating their partnership with Renault to change to Honda engines next year.

Red Bull and Renault combined for four consecutive drivers' and constructors' championships between 2010 and 2013, but the relationship has deteriorated since.

Red Bull had fancied their chances in Hungary before the weekend but rain in qualifying dented their hopes, with 20-year-old Verstappen starting seventh and Daniel Ricciardo back in 12th.

Daniel Ricciardo admits Formula One's August break has come at a ideal time to give him a way to forget about Red Bull's spluttering 2018 campaign.

It subsequently emerged that the Australian had been unable to take all the new components Red Bull had wanted because Renault made only three of the six items available.
