Max Verstappen loses cool during press conference ahead of Canadian GP

F1's stricter engine rules for 2018 have limited the components each driver can use per season and Ricciardo's issue in Monaco, plus a problem with the same engine part during a practice session ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix, had left Red Bull fearing he would have to move on to a third MGU-K in Montreal - an automatic 10-place grid penalty.

Like I said I get a bit exhausted of all the questions.

Daniel Ricciardo has made the headlines for all the right reasons in recent races, winning the Monaco grand prix from a seemingly impossible situation.

"Of course the beginning of the year so far, it hasn't been going that well and not in the way that I liked it".

He added: "I don't listen to it anyway". A few mistakes, especially Monaco and China, but it doesn't make sense to keep talking about it.

"I get really exhausted of it".

"It feels like there are no better questions out there than keep asking me about what happened in the previous weekend".

"Now he (Verstappen) is in the spotlight. any small error now I think he's probably going to get a little picked apart from", Ricciardo said. The speed is there. I've always been quick every single weekend. "If I get any more I might headbutt someone".

"You know, I get really exhausted of all the comments of me that I should change my approach", said Verstappen, who recovered to finish in the points in Monaco.

The Dutch driver has endured a hard start to the season after being involved in incidents at every race so far in the 2018 season.

"I'm getting really exhausted of all the questions", said the 20-year-old, who has fewer than half the points of Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo ahead of Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix. And having such good momentum at the moment I think a penalty would take a bit of wind out of our sails.

"I don't think so", he replied when it was put to him that he's had more crashes this year. "It's not that dramatic as people say it is".

"When I heard whispers about a potential penalty here, at that point I was like "I'll take it in Paul Ricard but not here".
