Verstappen immediately apologised for causing the crash at Turn 2 which forced Ricciardo to trudge back to garage just seconds into the race.
But the Red Bull duo, who have a good relationship with each other, have talked to each other about the incident away from the spotlight.
“Yesterday was hard to take,” Ricciardo wrote. “You build up all day for those couple hours of racing and then it’s gone like that.
“Max apologized to me after the race and we spoke one on one away from media or anyone.
“The situation was handled and taken care of in the right way to move forward. Lights go out again in 4 weeks.”
Verstappen was given a 10-second timed penalty for causing the collision, as well as two penalty points on his superlicence.
