Members of the Red Bull team are making "jokes" about Daniel Ricciardo.

That is the news from Max Verstappen, the energy drink-owned team's continuing driver.

'It always happens on his car'

Ricciardo is switching to Renault's works team, but ironically he has been bearing the brunt of the problems with the French manufacturer's customer engine at Red Bull lately.

"It's ironic that it always happens on his car. I'm sure he'll have a few words with his future employer about it," team boss Christian Horner is quoted by Auto Bild.

Verstappen revealed that after Ricciardo's latest Renault-related problem in Austin, the Australian was particularly furious.

"Daniel punched a hole in the wall between our rooms. I think within the team there are secretly some jokes being made about it," he told the Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport.

"But for the team it is just very bad. I know exactly how he feels, as I experienced it often enough last year. It's just bad," Verstappen added.
