Red Bull Racing's first competitive day with Honda power "ran very smoothly" according the Max Verstappen who finished the opening day of the 2019 season third on the time-sheets.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has conceded that Mercedes' pace so far during the Australian Grand Prix weekend has caught them his team by surprise.

Valtteri Bottas was fifth in the second Mercedes, with his session including running off the road at the penultimate corner.

"I think it was quite clear, however it's hard to know what everyone's doing, so naturally we won't fully know until we get out in the vehicle tomorrow and, come qualifying you get a better picture".

"Overall, I think we have a pretty good package, but we won't know where we are until we get into the race weekend and see if we have closed the gap to Mercedes and Ferrari". "We'll have a much better understanding of it - but I think it's the same for everyone".
