"I don't think it changed the shape of the race; I don't think that was the reason that we were second and not first".
However, Ricciardo was left frustrated in second at the chequered flag behind Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, who appeared to struggle earlier in the weekend. Both companies created the Valkyrie road-going hypercar together.
Asked whether Ricciardo could have won the race if not for the gearbox problem, Horner said: "We certainly could have been closer and put a bit more pressure on, but I think it's very different conditions today - with the rain, the rubber being gone, it's cooler than Friday, they were all factors". Recently, McLaren announced it would use Renault engines in the 2018 Formula 1 season, ditching Honda as its engine supplier. "I like it around here", Ricciardo joked on the podium.
Ricciardo's Singapore finish was his seventh podium in 10 grands prix, even after Red Bull was worried that his gearbox was about to malfunction halfway through. It was cooler as well.
"Dietrich wants the team to be competitive".
Several announcements are expected on Thursday, with Honda and McLaren set to confirm the end of an unhappy attempt to recreate a previously successful partnership.
"I'd take the fourth place because if you look until before qualifying, it could have been awfully more worse".
"Everybody's agreement in F1 goes up to the end of 2020".
While the industry grew 7% in the April-July period, the festive season has got off to a better start with strong sales during Ganesh Chaturthi in Maharashtra and Onam in Kerala.
