But former F1 driver Massa says he understands.

"Daniel, like the rest of us, doesn't know what will happen with the Honda engines next year.

He is also not very happy with Max Verstappen. It's a risk, and it may or may not work out," he told Globo.

Meanwhile, Red Bull chief Horner said Fernando Alonso will not be replacing Ricciardo in 2019 because of the "chaos" he brings to F1 teams.

On Twitter, Spaniard Alonso reacted with multiple 'laughing' emojis, and a hashtag that included the words 'Nothanks'.
