Published

on

MOST people think Dave Reynolds has done his dash.

Labelled the shock contender, the giant-killer, and the early season surprise packet after storming out of the blocks to challenge Scott McLaughlin (DJR Team Penske) earlier this year, Reynolds suffered a wipe-out in Winton to slip to fourth in the championship. And most think that is just about where he belongs.

“Yeah some people might think we were overachieving,’’ Reynolds said.

“But we weren’t. Winton was just a slip-up.’’

Published

on

Formula One has rejected Daniel Ricciardo’s suggestion to change the “unfair” system surround the FIA weighbridge incident after Sebastian Vettel’s penalty at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

The German avoided a grid-place penalty but was given a reprimand and fined €25,000 for “destroying” the weighbridge after failing to obey instructions when being called in for a random check at the beginning of Q2.

Vettel had yet to set a laptime at that point because Ferrari had ordered him to pit and change his tyres, sparking his understandable frustration.
