Daniel Ricciardo has admitted to Sky Sports his relationship with Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen could buckle under the strain of a head-to-head world championship fight.

And Ricciardo, speaking in an exclusive interview which was broadcast as part of Sky F1s coverage of the Hungarian GP this weekend, has warned Verstappens precocious growth into a top-level driver may plateau. The Hungarian GP on Sky F1 Full weekend schedule and TV times Despite their partnership being just three months old, Verstappen and Ricciardo are already widely considered to be the strongest driver pairing on the grid, with thoughts already fast-forwarding to their contest next season when the sports rules refresh is expected to return Red Bull to the rank of title contenders. For now it has been really good, Ricciardo said of the pairs relationship. But you can never predict what will happen if you are fighting for a world championship. If next year we have a great car and can fight for a world title and we are going at hammer and tongs, then Im sure at some point we will cross paths. But its how you deal with it. If you can face defeat with maturity then I dont think there should be any conflict. Lets see what happens - I just hope we can fight for the title.Although Ricciardo is ten points ahead of the teenager in the Drivers Championship, Verstappen has the edge over the Australian from their six races together at Red Bull by a score of 77 points to 64.Yet despite his team-mates burgeoning reputation and immediate impact at Red Bull, topped by the 18-year-old winning his first race for the team to become the youngest-ever winner in F1, Ricciardo is unfazed by the challenge presented from the other side of the teams garage. Whos where in 2017? The state of play in the F1 driver market Hes good. Its always hard to say how good but certainly hes very good, Ricciardo told Sky F1. Because hes young it will be interesting to see if he keeps getting better at such a quick rate or if he plateaus.And asked if he believes he can defeat Verstappen, the broad smile as much as the words themselves told the answer.Lets see.

On Sunday, head coach Patrick Roy said the teams leading scorer will skate at Mondays morning practice and the club will make a decision on his status for Game 6 at that point. PINEHURST, N.C. -- Now that hes got that pesky major out of the way, Justin Rose is learning to savour the quest for his next big title. Hes not nearly as optimistic about Englands chances in the World Cup. Rose is the reigning champion heading into the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, a player who is certainly more at ease with his place in golf now that hes got one of those prestigious titles on his resume. "In the last few months, I sort of realized what I have achieved and its time to embrace it, enjoy it, and let that be the strength for me to go on and win more," Rose said Tuesday. Of course, theres another big sporting event beginning this week, one that will certainly have the attention of Rose and his fellow English players. Their soccer-mad nation has a huge opening match in the World Cup against Italy on Saturday, the soccer game scheduled to begin in Brazil about the time the third round of the Open is wrapping up in North Carolina. Reflecting the mood of his homeland, Rose is not very hopeful. Englands only World Cup title came in 1966 and expectations are low for this team, a youthful squad playing in one of the most difficult groups. "I would say theres probably more chance of one of us winning the major than England winning the World Cup," said Rose, among 11 English players in the Pinehurst field. "Sad to say." Roses primary focus will be on his bid to become the first repeat U.S. Open champion in a quarter-century. Last years triumph at Merion had been in the making for nearly that long, ever since Rose finished fourth as an 18-year-old amateur at the 1998 British Open. He spent the next 15 years trying to finish the job, chasing a major title that seemed increasingly elusive as the close calls began to pile up, the weight of expectations becoming almost too much to bear. Then, just when it seemed he might have a lifetime membership in the "Best Players Never To Win A Major" club, Rose won a duel with Phil Mickelson at the venerable club outside Philadelphia, clinching the title with a 4-iron intoo the demanding 18th hole that gave him the par he needed to hold off Lefty.

"I havent been one of those guys who said, OK, well, Im going to win X amount of majors in my career," Rose said. "I really want to treat this major that Ive won now as a gift and let it give me the ability to sort of free-wheel for the rest of my career -- play free, play loose, just go after it. Ive really got no pressure on me from that perspective anymore." Not surprisingly, the U.S. Golf Association paired Rose and Mickelson in the first two rounds. Both hope theyll still be playing together in the final group on Sunday. "I enjoy playing golf with Phil," Rose said. "I enjoy the spirit in which he plays the games, how free he is out there. Hes got a great temperament for the game. Nothing seems to faze him. Thats something a lot of players can look up to him for." Curtis Strange, the last player to win consecutive Opens in 1988 and 89, is pulling for Rose to join the exclusive club. "If Justin would happen to do it this year, that would be the first phone call," Strange said. "That would be fantastic." Rose missed the cut in his last tournament, the Memorial, though he thinks that might turn out to be a good break because it gave him more time to get familiar with Pinehurst. Before that stumble, he had ripped off three straight top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a tie for fourth against a loaded field at The Players Championship. His biggest challenge this week might be keeping his mind on golf. During the 2010 World Cup, Rose held a three-shot lead going to the final round of the Travelers Championship. That morning, he watched Englands title hopes fade away with a 4-1 loss to Germany. Then he went out and shot a 75, finishing three shots behind winner Bubba Watson. "I never really calmed down," Rose recalled. "So maybe Ill be a little bit more careful about my emotions watching the football." After all, hes probably Englands best hope for a championship. ' ' '
