Verstappen came after the first four races of the season 2016 to Crimson Bull, while Ricciardo has been racing there since the beginning “At one point it was difficult for him because we were so close together all the time,” Verstappen recalls, explaining that a strong team-mate is ultimately “also very important to the Group.”
