"You never really know until qualifying". Obviously, Friday paints one picture but you're never really sure what's going to happen.
"A little bit disheartening", he admitted.
"I don't really know what I could have done more with what we had", Ricciardo said.
"Add together with my final lap I couldn't continue". "It wasn't our preferred tyre".
"Q3 I think we [Verstappen] both put in a good lap on the supers, which I don't think was our preferred tyre, just the way the auto is feeling this weekend I felt the softs were better so that is why I went for them in the second part of Q3".
Ricciardo later revealed that he spun through Turn 10, commenting: "I actually had a spin on the restart so yeah, I was struggling to keep these tyres warm".
"I chipped away at my lap time by a few hundredths but it wasn't enough".
"That gap is not so nice", he sighed.

Their battle at the Malaysian Grand Prix in 2016 was close but clean as Ricciardo went on to take the win at Sepang, while Verstappen's wayward Red Bull eliminated the Australian from the Hungarian Grand Prix after just three corners a year ago, so there is some previous, but none of the other top teams have been squeaky clean in that sense either.
"We are in a hard position because we want to not only beat each other but try and attack Kimi [Raikkonen, who starts fourth] or whoever is in front of us".
"I find it frustrating that decisions are made on zero evidence or zero conclusions on theories and the burden of costs are passed on to the teams".
"Now from turn 1 to turn 4 it's flat-out with corners in it", he explained. "We don't have that power mode and especially now that from turn one until turn four it's flat-out".
Verstappen also believes the supersoft tyres will not prove popular at all in Sunday's race. "I saw Sebastian approaching but I knew I had relatively fresh tyres so it would be hard for him to overtake, this allowed me to manage the situation quite well".
