F1 news, Brazilian Grand Prix 2018: Daniel Ricciardo on Max Verstappen dad comments Mexico GP, Red Bull, Renault

Published

on

DANIEL Ricciardo has hit back at suggestions by Max Verstappen’s dad that he rubbed his teammate’s face in it by over-celebrating after pipping him to pole position in Mexico.

The Dutchman was the man to beat all weekend having set the quickest times, but Ricciardo reminded everyone what he could do with a dramatic quickest lap with only seconds remaining to qualify on pole.

In doing so, he denied Verstappen the record of becoming the youngest ever pole-sitter for a Formula One Grand Prix, leading the 21-year-old’s father Jos to say his son was annoyed with Ricciardo for the way he dealt with his victory.

F1 news 2019: Malaysian Grand Prix return, 2022, Sepang International Circuit, V8 Supercars foreign race, latest

Formula One could return to Malaysia at the Sepang International Circuit as early as 2022, with the prospect of Supercars joining them as a support category not ruled out.

The Malaysian Grand Prix was scrapped from the F1 calendar for 2018, with the 2017 edition being the last of Sepang’s contract before they decided to stop hosting it.

Sepang had been a fixture on the calendar since 1999 but decided to focus their investment elsewhere, whilst still retaining their most popular event, the Malaysian MotoGP, which has been staged there since 1991 and garnered more than 100,000 spectators in 2018.

F1 news, Chinese Grand Prix 2019: Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas, double stack, video, watch, timing

Published

on

Mercedes dominated the weekend of the Chinese Grand Prix and took their third one-two of the season to strengthen their position at the top of the championship and put further pressure on Ferrari to keep up.

Valtteri Bottas was on pole as he and Lewis Hamilton locked out the front row but they quickly switched places going into the first corner in Shanghai.

From there on out, as Ferrari battled with team orders behind them, which only served to allow Max Verstappen’s Red Bull to get involved in the battle, the Mercedes duo were in clear air.

Ferrari simply didn’t have the pace to challenge Mercedes at the Chinese GP, whether they attacked, defended, swapped or blocked. And with Red Bull not fulfilling all of their potential at the moment this created a rather ordinary race upfront.

As the famous five red lights extinguished Lewis Hamilton’s first job in the GP, from second on the grid, was to balance the throttle pedal and clutch lever for the best launch with minimal wheelspin. He did this to great effect and the race was effectively his in the first few hundred meters.

Valtteri Bottas, from pole position, had some wheelspin as he crossed a white painted line in front of his grind slot and was probably lucky to remain in second by the exit of the T1/2/3/4 complex.
