Published

on

Renault have reacted to a poor start to the 2019 Formula One season by announcing several high-profile changes to their senior structure, including the addition on a former Ferrari and Mercedes specialist.

The French manufacturer has endured a torrid time this season and has yet to see both drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg complete a race together.

Renault have suffered five retirements already to their works team drivers as well as the two engine-related retirements customer team McLaren have had.

F1 2020, British Grand Prix, qualifying, live: Start time, Daniel Ricciardo, weather updates, practice, stream access

F1 2020, British Grand Prix, Silverstone, qualifying at 11pm (AEST) — Lewis Hamilton expects Mercedes to come good in qualifying for the British GP on Saturday after a “difficult” Friday practice.

Mercedes has been untouchable in the 2020 season having won all three races in Austria and Hungary, but on Friday the Silver Arrows trailed Max Verstappen for Red Bull and Racing Point’s Lance Stroll on the timesheets at Silverstone.

Nonetheless, Hamilton isn’t concerned about Mercedes’ pace ahead of qualifying given the Briton, or his teammate Valtteri Bottas, have claimed pole at every event this season.

F1 2020: Nico Hulkenberg reveals ‘crazy’ ride at British GP

Published

on

Nico Hulkenberg has lifted the lid on his “crazy” call-up for the British GP, and believes he can deliver for a fast Racing Point this weekend after a solid first day in the car at Silverstone.

The 32-year-old, who isn’t racing in a full-time series this year after losing his Renault seat at the end of 2019, was dramatically drafted in to replace Sergio Perez after the Mexican’s positive coronavirus test on Friday (AEDT).

On his first day back in Formula 1 and after a night of little sleep, Hulkenberg — Aussie Daniel Ricciardo’s ex-teammate at Renault — was just six tenths of a second slower than teammate Lance Stroll in both sessions, the second of which Stroll was fastest of all.

“The last 24 hours have been a bit special, crazy and wild,” Hulkenberg said after practice.

“At 4.30pm yesterday afternoon I got a call, took a plane here, seat-fitted until 2am, then at 8am this morning (I was) into the simulator for an hour, a bit of prep work. So it was a short night — but all worthwhile.

Racing Point’s Sergio Perez has tested positive for coronavirus and will not take part in this weekend’s British GP.

The Mexican was self-isolating and absent from the Silverstone paddock on Thursday after an ‘inconclusive’ result led to a retest.

That test has now returned a positive result.

Perez is the first driver and front-line member of an F1 team to test positive for COVID-19 since the delayed season began earlier this month.
