"Max was quite tough on Red Bull and the shortcomings of their - what we thought was a great car, this RB20 - after qualifying yesterday," he said during Ted's Race Notebook on Sky Sports.

"And again to sort of announce in the pen afterwards saying: 'Well you know, this is what's going to happen with this car, and Canada has curves that we don't like.'
