Watch out for Verstappen, Red Bull boss warns Hamilton

Former champions Red Bull, who finished third overall behind champions Mercedes and Ferrari past year, have switched from Renault power units to Honda for the season starting in Australia on March 17. So we've seen behind the scenes their evolution and they're making good progress.

Honda made significant progress in 2018 but Verstappen told his official website he does not expect to match Mercedes and Ferrari for power at the start of the new season.

"I don't think we will match Ferrari and Mercedes straight away in terms of power", said Verstappen, "but Honda is giving everything to get there as quickly as possible".

"But for sure I will get better through the season and that's fair to say".

Ricciardo's last race for Red Bull was in late November in Abu Dhabi but he could only link up with his new team now because his former employer wouldn't release him.

F1's bosses have changed the technical rules this year to force teams to run a new front wing design that they hope will make the racing better, by making it easier for drivers to follow another vehicle. They have settled on a concept that for the first time since their re-entry into Formula 1 has continued from one season to the next without it being a completely clean sheet of paper. I will be with a teammate who is one of the best and most talented of the moment.

"It will all depend on what the others have done".

Red Bull is continuing to sound bullish ahead of the 2019 season, with boss Christian Horner declaring that new works engine partner Honda has had a "strong winter".

"Obviously it has been a huge challenge to do 21 races on three engines", he said.

"We would prefer constant development, even if it means we would have to put up with one or two penalties", he said.

"I think his maturity has increased, we saw that during the course of past year".

"Lewis is at a different stage of his career", Horner said.

"This is the first time that Red Bull and Honda have collaborated, and we know that at the beginning of a relationship, it always takes a little time for things to become automatic and you get the most out of it". And the management within Renault has been different to what it was when we started the relationship.

"So I think with Honda, it being a true technical partnership, there's much more collective responsibility from both sides rather than being a customer-supplier scenario".
