The moment cameras didn't catch that cost Daniel Ricciardo at Spanish GP

"Friday paints one picture but you are never really sure about what is going to happen", said Ricciardo.

Nevertheless, after the two drivers qualified within 0.002s of each other in fifth and sixth on the Barcelona grid, Ricciardo is expecting rules of engagement to be laid down in Sunday's pre-race briefing.

"Add together with my final lap I couldn't continue". Just from the way the vehicle was feeling this weekend, I think we were more comfortable on the softs. I chipped away on my lap time by a few hundreds, but it wasn't enough and they [Mercedes] put in some belters at the end.

"Q3 I think we both put in a strong lap on the supers (super softs), which wasn't, I don't think was our preferred tire".

Nearly as painful was the narrowest of margins by which he lost out to his team mate, meaning Ricciardo will start in sixth place - one spot behind Verstappen. Horner, who warned the drivers ahead of the race to be careful, was furious after the incident but stopped short of imposing team orders on the pair this weekend.

"Turn 1 to Turn 4 is flat out so it is even harder for us as we just lose more top speed".

Falcons agree to terms with defensive tackle Terrell McClain
The Falcons agreed to terms with defensive tackle Terrell McClain on Friday, further solidifying their defensive line rotation. If you're sensing a theme here, it is that injury concerns are holding back the true potential of the Cowboys defensive line.

"I still think they [Ferrari and Mercedes] are going to be fast in the race, so I don't think it's going to be like we're the best tomorrow".

"There is potential but it's just hard to extract consistently at the moment, so we have some more to learn with this new package". "We don't have that power mode and especially now that from turn one until turn four it's flat-out".

Verstappen said Red Bull is suffering as all cars get faster with development because its normal advantage in corners is reduced as more of them get closer to full throttle for more teams.

"Even if I forget Lewis's time I think Seb [Vettel] did a 16.3, so we're still about half a second off that". "I chose the supersoft, Daniel went on the soft". Honestly I haven't seen really.

"It was just a bit tricky to drive", he said. I don't think we're necessarily struggling in the front or the rear but overall downforce is always good.
