Bob Bell says it's not fair of Max Verstappen to blame all of Red Bull's problems on the Renault engine.

"He wants to win because he knows he has the potential and he's disappointed that his car lets him down. But he only blames our engine," Bell told the Ziggo Sport broadcaster.

"We make no changes to the engines we use for our (works) cars and the ones that go to our customers. It may be the installation of the engines that affect the Red Bull cars, or maybe they've just been unlucky," Bell insisted.
