Monaco GP 2018 report: Ferrari under scrutiny for illegal boost

Published

on

FERRARI is at the centre of a Monaco “cheat” storm.

Rival teams believe the Italian outfit may have an illegal power boost system on their cars, The Sun reports.

And it is understood the sport’s governing body, the FIA, has ordered Ferrari to fit additional computer hardware for the Monaco Grand Prix to prevent any illegal use of F1’s Energy Recovery System.

Mercedes chief Toto Wolff said: “It is the obligation of teams to comply with regulations and this is an ongoing process.

“Legality topics come up regularly. Some are more controversial but it’s the daily business of the FIA to check what the teams do.

Hamilton ran into the run-off at Turn Four after losing control of his Mercedes, taking out a bollard in the process, and returned to the track just as Verstappen was approaching Turn Five.

On a timed lap, the Red Bull went round the outside of the recovering Mercedes, but then Verstappen himself ran off the circuit after losing grip.

F1 French Grand Prix LIVE 2019: Practice 1, 2, results, timings, Daniel Ricciardo, Renault, stream, start time, latest news, watch, video, crash

Welcome to FOX SPORTS’ live coverage of the Formula One French Grand Prix. 

Daniel Ricciardo will be able to look to the stands and see a sea of yellow, much as he did in Melbourne, this weekend as his Renault team are welcomed to their home grand prix at the Circuit Paul Ricard.

Renault are providing him and teammate Nico Hulkenberg with some major chassis upgrades to go with the increased power they’ve put on show during the last couple of rounds of action.

They are hoping these changes will be the ones to bring them a lot closer to Red Bull, having seen both of their drivers beat Pierre Gasly in Canada last time out.

F1 news, French Grand Prix 2019: Daniel Ricciardo, Renault, Nico Hulkenberg, pressure, changes, upgrades, results, standings

So far this season, it’s been very difficult to see real evidence of Renault making good on its pre-season aim to pull itself clear of the midfield and close the performance gap to the top three teams.

But this weekend in its home race at Paul Ricard, we get to see – arguably for the first time – what the true potential of its 2019 car/engine package is.

After an early season that was badly disrupted by a design fault in the engine that led to a con-rod failure for Nico Hulkenberg in the second race, and further compromises in bringing aero developments onto the car at the Enstone chassis base, Renault thus far is solidly in that midfield and its average qualifying deficit to pole is over 1.5s.
