Raikkonen wins US Grand Prix, Ricciardo puts fist through wall

Formula One World Championship

But Verstappen has made huge strides in the second half of the campaign, and last weekend charged flawlessly through the field in the US Grand Prix at Austin from 18th on the grid to finish second.

Ricciardo's race last just eight laps until he pulled over at the side of Turn 11 with a terminal vehicle problem.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says it is "ironic" that Daniel Ricciardo keeps suffering Renault-related issues following his retirement from the United States Grand Prix.

"It was exactly the same failure as in Bahrain earlier in the year, where it looks like a major issue in the energy store and it just takes out all of the power", Horner said.

His frustration came as no surprise given it was his fifth premature exit in 10 races, news.com.au reported.

Ricciardo, who leaves Red Bull for Renault next season, was battling for a possible podium finish when he was forced into retirement.

US President Donald Trump has called the killing of Jamal Khashoggi one of the "worst cover-ups in the history of cover-ups". Speaking to reporters at the White House , Trump said the entire operation was a fiasco.

"He has just taken his frustration out in his room by putting his fist through a wall and you can totally relate to that".

Boss Christian Horner has praised Red Bull driver Max Verstappen for battling back from a hard start to eventually fire in 2018.

"Hopefully we've got enough components in our [engine] pool for him not to take a penalty [next weekend in Mexico]".

"I think really since Montreal he has driven some brilliant races", Horner told Motorsport.com. I'm sure he'll have a few words with his future employer about it.

"Next year with the Honda engine I think we can fight for the world championship", said Marko. "That Ferrari and Mercedes will not be able to run their high power modes, that is what helped us past year". At that point we thought it would be a two-stop race, but we then converted to a one-stop as Max was doing such a great job of managing his tyres.

Raikkonen ended a five year losing streak at the Texan track, with his last win occurring at the 2013 Australian Grand Prix with Lotus - a gap of 112 races.
