Following Red Bull's double DNF in Baku, the result of Verstappen making a double move to block Daniel Ricciardo, Horner said that he felt the Dutchman was a bit too "over eager" this season.

The two looked firmly in the frame to challenge for a possible front row start.

"I'm guessing he has the opportunity of going to Ferrari, a possibility at Mercedes and Red Bull".

Ricciardo's best lap of 1m16.818s was 0.645s off Lewis Hamilton's pole time of 1m16.173s. "I was kind of a little bit "ugh" after quali". With the laps we put in, I thought we would have been a couple of tenths from pole not, what was it, six or seven.

The Austrian marquee usually finds its feet after some in-season development. "So hat's off to them and tomorrow I think it will be a close race".

But Horner remained coy on whether the RB14's updates will enable them to change the pecking order at the head of the field. "You never really know until qualie". Obviously, Friday paints one picture but you're never really sure what's going to happen.

"We both put good laps on the Supersofts in Q3. I think Mercedes went on a soft - I haven't seen really but even for me it was a guess, so it's a bit tricky".

Meanwhile on the other end of the garage, Max Verstappen stuck to the Supersoft for both runs.

"I still don't know what is the fastest tire to be honest", continued Verstappen. So I hope from now onwards, it just goes in that direction, because I don't think I need to do anything different. I don't think many people will actually choose the Supersoft [for the race].

"So a lot of people will be choosing the Soft and the Medium".

As for Ricciardo, the Aussie said: "The first thing I said afterwards was that I still want to race". "We don't have that power mode and especially now that from turn one until turn four it's flat-out".

"You have to consider from Turn 1 until Turn 4 is flat out, with the corners where you are scrubbing speed and for our engine, of course it is harder", he said.
