"I don't feel like I'm in the holiday mood", said Verstappen.

Verstappen had been livid on team radio when the failure occurred, first suggesting that he runs the vehicle until the engine "blows up", before screaming: "Fuck!"

"Sometimes words betray you", the Briton told Sky Sports F1 television.

It was the fourth race of the 2018 season that the 20-year-old has failed the finish and adds to a raft of technical issues for Red Bull Racing.

As his vehicle slowed and he dropped down the order, the Dutchman opened up his radio channel to say: "Can I not just go ahead, I don't f--ing care if this engine blows up". "As I was happy with the vehicle I think we could have had a good battle with the front group. I think we could have gone with Lewis today with the race pace", Vetel said.

Max Verstappen was still fuming on Sunday evening after being forced to retire just five laps into the Hungarian Grand Prix by yet another engine-related failure. I am not going to get drawn into saying too much, but we pay many millions of pounds for these engines, for a first-class, state-of-the-art product, and you can see that it's quite some way below that.

'It's frustrating, that's what it is. I would like to get back in the vehicle to race again and finish on a strong result.

Daniel Ricciardo set the pace in first practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Friday, living up to expectations that Red Bull would be among the favourites at a track that suits their vehicle. "I will let Cyril (Abiteboul, head of Renault Sport) come up with his excuses afterwards".

Red Bull and Renault combined for four consecutive drivers' and constructors' championships between 2010 and 2013, but the relationship has deteriorated since.

Red Bull are switching to Honda engines for 2019, after a long and often fruitful partnership with Renault, which has turned sour in recent times. This was because Renault made only three of the six items available.
