F1 2019: Sebastian Vettel Canada Grand Prix penalty, Daniel Ricciardo slammed

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo should be penalised for a “dirty” move during the Canadian Grand Prix, according to Formula 1 legend Jacques Villeneuve.

Ricciardo steered his Renault through his best weekend of the year, finishing sixth.

However, the Australian star’s vital championship points are now under a cloud after Villeneuve on Tuesday night made fresh calls for him to face a punishment from FIA officials.

Ricciardo’s early-race defensive thrusts to block Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas were overshadowed by the huge drama surrounding the stewards’ decision to smack Sebastian Vettel with a five-second penalty which saw him surrender the race to championship leader Lewis Hamilton, despite crossing the line first.

Ferrari are appealing the decision of the stewards.

Published

Marc Marquez may have been the winner at Misano, but Petronas Yamaha SRT rookie sensation Fabio Quartararo was the standout — and proved his status as the next big thing.

While he failed to claim his maiden MotoGP victory on Sunday, 20-year-old Quartararo demonstrated his mettle on the biggest stage as he held off seven-time world champion Marquez until the final lap in the San Marino MotoGP.

The pace Quartararo produced on race day shouldn’t have come as a surprise, with the Yamaha package proving the class of the field all weekend.
