Horner surprised Renault is letting issues happen on Daniel Ricciardo's auto

Horner said Ricciardo knew the problems were nothing to Red Bull, but to Renault - whose works team he will switch to for next season.

Ricciardo was sitting in fourth on the ninth lap of the race when his vehicle conked out on him - his fifth DNF in 10 races.

Horner said Ricciardo's frustration got the better of him after the race.

Ricciardo, in fourth at the time, was forced to retire after just 10 laps in Austin due to an energy store issue on his power unit, which is supplied by the team he is joining for F1 2019, Renault. "It was a throttle linkage in Japan, a battery here, it's hugely frustrating for him".

Ricciardo, meanwhile, has been warned by Red Bull's motorsport advisor, Dr Helmut Marko, that there will be more pain to come once he joins Renault next season.

Ricciardo's team-mate Max Verstappen managed to finish in second place, while Finnish driver Kimi Räikkönen took first. With 21-year-old Max Verstappen in the passenger seat, the duo were bound to get up to some shenanigans. He doesn't blame the team in any way, he knows we are doing everything we can, it's just one of those things, ' he said.

Erdogan calls for trial of Saudi Khashoggi killing suspects in Turkey
Trump characterized Erdogan's remarks as " pretty rough ", though he said "I haven't gotten a full recap". Erdogan refused to accept Saudi Arabia's explanation that the Saudi journalist was accidentally killed.

It was the other way around a year ago with Max (Verstappen) but as Renault's premier driver I think you wouldn't expect these issues to be happening.

"I hope no more penalties, we should have enough components for him not to".

"I think really since Montreal (in June), he has driven some brilliant races", Horner told Autosport.

Sunday was just the latest in a long line of technical problems that have blighted Ricciardo's season since he won at Monaco in May. "I'm sure he'll have a few words with his future employer about it", team boss Christian Horner is quoted by Auto Bild.

"We are hoping that with the altitude of Mexico that it will concertina the engines a bit", added Horner.

"We are hopeful that it will be the same again this year, and realistically it is our last shot at winning a race between now and the end of the year".
