"Q1 and Q2 were actually very good but in Q3 it's always harder for us to step up by four or five tenths like Ferrari and Mercedes as we don't have that extra engine mode". World championship leader Sebastian Vettel was second, 0.183 seconds behind, with Valtteri Bottas third for Mercedes, 0.201 seconds off the pace. Haas continued to struggle in 17th and 18th and Kevin Magnussen only completed 11 laps after Antonio Giovinazzi crashed his auto during the morning practice session.

Ricciardo has five podium finishes in the past six races.

The two started together on the third row and Ricciardo's vehicle was smashed into by Verstappen at turn two with the Australian ahead.

Ferrari's Kimi Räikkönen, Mercedes's Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen were 0.3 seconds off the pace in fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.

"Yes", came the reply from Red Bull, and then Ricciardo did not mince his words. "I'll speak with Daniel in private and we'll sort it out".

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Red Sox do not plan to seek an immediate replacement for Price on the trade market. The 31-year-old left-hander is now in the midst of his second season as a member of the Red Sox.

The opening session in the morning featured one red flagged stoppage and the second session had two with both Pascal Wehrlein of Sauber and luckless Jolyon Palmer of Renault smacking into the barriers. "I was just on my line". "It's super-tight between Ferrari, Red Bull and ourselves at the top of the leaderboard, so it's looking like it will be an exciting weekend". "I was not happy yesterday, just didn't have full confidence in the auto, and a lot oversteer a lot of understeer all the time, I just couldn't find the balance". Bottas' times looked good on the yellow-striped compound and in comparison with Vettel, who was also on the softs, he just had the edge. "I don't think he likes when a team mate gets in front", he added.

"Struggling a lot with oversteer and rear tyres didn't seem to be ready", the German said over the team radio. "I think that will be the main area for us to focus on".

With an old specification floor fitted for the second session, Palmer crashed heavily at the final turn after complaining of poor balance in his auto.

Palmer has yet to score a point this season, and his Renault seat is reportedly coming under threat as Polish driver Robert Kubica continues his F1 comeback bid.

Ricciardo was fastest in the morning, with Räikkönen and Hamilton behind him.
