Ricciardo not happy with Magnussen moving under braking

Daniel Ricciardo says that he is not happy with Haas driver Kevin Magnussen moving under braking during the Hungarian Grand Prix, in which the Australian finished P14.

Ricciardo had a disastrous qualifying, being knocked out in Q1 and took the opportunity to take engine penalties, leaving him starting dead last. 

Points would have been difficult from that position, but he was disappointed with P14, and said in Renault's press release: “It was always going to be tough starting at the back of the grid, but there were some positive moments.

"We made the hard tyres last well and then had good pace on the soft tyre towards the end. It was frustrating not to get past Magnussen. I felt he was moving under braking, and I couldn’t do anything.

"I wasn’t happy about that as we could have progressed even further at the end. There are some positives and the summer break will be good for us. We’ll reset, take some time off, we know we’re in it together and we’ll be targeting a better second-half of the season.”
