Published

on

VALTTERI Bottas pipped Daniel Ricciardo to set the early pace at the Azerbaijan GP, but Max Verstappen suffered more misery as he crashed out of Practice One.

Bottas posted a 1:44.242 on ultrasoft tyres to top the timesheet in Baku by 0.035s from Chinese GP winner Daniel Ricciardo, although the Australian posted his best time on his third flying lap on the slower supersoft tyres.

Sergio Perez was third on an encouraging morning for Force India while world champion Lewis Hamilton was fourth but nearly a second off the pace set by his Mercedes team-mate and Ricciardo.

Supercars Gold Coast 600: Jamie Whincup won’t sacrifice race wins for teammate Shane van Gisbergen

Published

on

SUPERCARS gun Jamie Whincup is refusing to give up on back-to-back championships and says he will not sacrifice race wins for teammate Shane van Gisbergen.

Whincup will hit the streets of Surfers Paradise at this weekend’s Gold Coast 600 needing to claw back a 404-point lead from his Triple Eight teammate to remain in the title hunt.

Whincup’s defence of his seventh championship started strongly before a mid-year lull thrust him behind the eight-ball, leaving him in third spot with three rounds remaining.

A loose wheel at Bathurst earlier this month relegated Whincup to a 10th-placed finish and further crushed his dreams of an eighth Supercars title.

But the Red Bull Holden heavyweight will not go down without a fight or surrender race wins to help van Gisbergen claim a second championship.

THE next three months will shape the prospects of a Chevrolet Camaro joining the Supercars Championship in 2020.

Two of the squad’s co-owners, Ryan Walkinshaw and Michael Andretti, affirmed that no final decision has been made internally on whether or not it will race the Camaro in the future.
