Max Verstappen top in Malaysian Grand Prix first practice

Max Verstappen top in Malaysian Grand Prix first practice”

"We'll keep trying and staying positive, aiming for the best results with the last few race of the season", said Verstappen.

The 19-year-old driver hopes the Sepang F1 will return in the future.

'My approach is right, so why should I change something?

"But I am quite confident we can be closer tomorrow. I am fast", he said.

Red Bull has consistently been the third best team this season behind constructors' championship leaders Mercedes and Ferrari, managing just one win from the opening fourteen rounds.The sole victory was claimed by Ricciardo in Baku after he benefitted from a spate of issues to numerous front runners.

The Brazilian was limited to just three laps with his mechanics investigating a hydraulics problem on his auto.

Still, Verstappen says he is consoled by the fact that he is regularly beating Australian Ricciardo in qualifying.

This weekend marks the final grand prix in Malaysia and Ricciardo says although it's not a circuit he has always loved, it will be missed.

'He (Ricciardo) is very fast. But I am faster this year by three- or four-tenths on average. That's a lot of time, ' Verstappen added. "This afternoon, we weren't that competitive looking at Ferrari but it looked like Mercedes struggled as well".

"I am also honest and straightforward - I do not lie".

The current relationship with Renault looks set to end; Red Bull is dipping a toe in the Honda waters with the new Toro Rosso deal; and 2018 title sponsor Aston Martin is considering entering the sport as an engine supplier.

The in-form duo opted to compete in the alcohol stakes in conjunction with team sponsors Red Bull, mixing up some delights during a race build up event.

"In general the mood in the team is better and better", he said.

Asked if that means an engine supply project, he answered: "You're certainly hinting in the right direction". "The auto is our hands though and so that's what we have to make the most of".
