"We sent a statement on Thursday and have been quickest every session".
In Australia he spun while chasing Kevin Magnussen's Haas at the start of the race, in Bahrain he spun in qualifying and made contact with Lewis Hamilton in the race, in China he crashed into Sebastian Vettel and in Baku he crashed in practice as well as colliding with teammate Daniel Ricciardo in the race.
"I have done everything I can so far, so let's finish the job".
Where Ricciardo took a congratulatory phone call on the tarmac from Dietrich Mateschitz, Red Bull's secretive billionaire owner, after a blistering lap of 1min 11.810sec, Verstappen received a firm warning from team principal Christian Horner that patience was wearing thin.
The Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix will take place this Sunday 27 May.
"It feels a bit bitter-sweet, we should have had two cars up there". Really delighted for the pole but we should have had two cars up there and it's frustrating with such a fast vehicle not to have both cars on the front row of the grid.
"There is no more brutal lesson than what he has just had", added Horner. He is a phenomenally fast driver and would have been competing for the pole position today.
"This place bites and he got bitten pretty hard today in a session that doesn't really count for anything, other than setting the vehicle up", Horner told Channel 4.
Hamilton leads Vettel by 17 points after five rounds of the 21-race championship, and the Briton will have been boosted by his car's performance after a disappointing showing in Monaco a year ago.
"I really can't tell you what Monaco is going to bring tomorrow, but I'm going to give it everything and just keep my head down".
"It's still a long race ahead of us tomorrow".
It remains to be seen who blinks first in the high stakes negotiations but Wolff is understandably fearful of forcing the pace given both Ferrari and Red Bull could be in the market for a new driver.
Renault's Carlos Sainz lines up eighth with Force India's Mexican Sergio Perez, who holds the current race lap record that is sure to be bettered on Sunday, in ninth and Frenchman Pierre Gasly 10th for Toro Rosso.
