After being told to pull up an incredulous Verstappen said: 'Mate, really?
Shattered at retiring so early in front of thousands of Dutch fans, clad from head to foot in orange, he ranted over team radio: "Can I not just keep going?" I don't care if this engine blows. "What a f**king joke all the f**king time with this s**t, honestly".
With overtaking so hard in Hungary, Ricciardo says qualifying on the front two rows of the grid is a must if Red Bull is to make of the most of its typically stronger race pace relative to qualifying.
This is the fourth time Verstappen has retired from a race, the latest being a braking problem at Silverstone.
The Ferrari driver, who crashed out of last weekend's German Grand Prix while leading, clocked a best lap of one minute and 16.170 seconds to wind up narrowly ahead of Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes by 0.059 seconds and his Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.
"Sometimes words betray you", said Horner, as he watched Verstappen park his auto on only the sixth lap, again the victim of reliability gremlins.

"Cruel luck for Max, it's an engine issue".
"I was 25 seconds clear of Daniel because of our starting positions and I felt ok so we could have easily been fifth - that is valuable points thrown away".
He told the team: "Can I not just go ahead and **** it. We pay multi-millions of pounds for these engines and for first class, or state-of-the-art, product and you can see it's quite clearly some way below that".
"It's frustrating, that's what it is". "We have got a good enough vehicle. We still have Daniel in the race and I will let Cyril come up with his excuses afterwards".
Renault powered the former champions to drivers' and constructor's titles for four years in a row between 2010 and 2013 but the relationship has frayed in the current V6 turbo hybrid era.
Ricciardo, race victor in Monaco, took grid penalties in Germany last weekend - starting at the rear of the field - to give himself the best chance in Hungary but retired from that race due to a power unit problem.
