Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team's Marcus Ericsson believes that a good balance is required on the vehicle for the fast corners around the Red Bull Ring ahead of this weekend's Austrian Grand Prix.
Shortly afterwards however, Max Verstappen and team boss Christian Horner made clear that in terms of aiding teammates with a tow, there is system in place at Red Bull which sees the drivers take it in turns to help one another, and that as Ricciardo benefitted from the Dutch driver in France a week ago, this week it was the Australian's turn to help the youngster.
Sunday's win at the Red Bull Ring was the fourth of Verstappen's career and it came, like his first in Spain in 2016, after champions Mercedes had imploded. "I'm not that happy at all", he said after qualifying seventh while Verstappen managed P4.
"Overtake him, mate, just overtake him". "It's a good run we are having now but we still a bit more engine power and then we can definitely be in the mix".
"He was keeping the rear left cooler than the rear right and the left here is the one that takes all the load".
"He was constantly asking for information and managing those tyres and that is why they didn't blister up. A very, very mature drive by him".

Horner, who has won four drivers' and constructors' championships with Red Bull since he became principal in 2005, insisted his team was run differently.
"This is the sport I signed up for as a kid", he said but added that: "If I could live my youth again, I would probably change it!" So I think you'd have to consider us as an outside contender.
Not only was Red Bull's victory from fourth on the grid unexpected, it represented the team's first at their own circuit in five attempts.
Nine races into the 2018 Formula 1 campaign, the series' top manufacturers all have three wins respectively.
"He was very much in control", Horner said.
When a virtual safety auto was called, he pitted while Hamilton stayed out and the advantage was his - but he had already made things happen by forcing his way past Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen on the opening lap from fourth on the grid. Horner commented on this by adding that support from Renault has been steady since the team's decision to switch to Honda next year. "Red Bull Ring, Red Bull auto and Max driving an unbelievable race".
