It's one thing to be beaten by your team mate, it's another when he wins the race.
Daniel Ricciardo says that Max Verstappen is the toughest driver sitting on the other side of the Red Bull Racing garage that he's ever had to contend with in his career.
But the Honey Badger won't give in to bad feelings or bitterness when his team mate trounces the opposition like Verstappen did on Sunday.
On the contrary, Ricciardo was happy to play his part and see Red Bull charge to its best result of the year in Sepang.
In short, he was genuinely happy for Max, but the Aussie won't play second fiddle for long.
