F1 news, Monaco Grand Prix 2019: Max Verstappen, Red Bull, Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes, Valtteri Bottas, crash, latest

Published

on

Max Verstappen says the penalty which cost him a podium in the Monaco GP energised him in his engrossing battle with Lewis Hamilton.

Although the Dutchman ran nose-to-tail with Hamilton for almost a quarter of the race, crossing the line in second place, he was classified fourth thanks to an earlier five-second penalty imposed for an unsafe release from his pit stop.

Released into the path of Valtteri Bottas, who had run second before the stops, Verstappen made contact with the Mercedes, with stewards ruling that the Red Bull “had the opportunity to avoid the contact contributing to the unsafe release”.

V8 Supercars, Darwin Triple Crown 2019: Scott McLaughlin, Craig Lowndes, Ford Mustang, Team Penske, latest news, history, results

Published

on

Craig Lowndes believes Scott McLaughlin has “one of the strongest opportunities” to make Supercars history this season, starting with this weekend’s Triple Crown in Darwin.

The DJR Team Penske driver has won 10 of the first 14 races so far on the way to establishing a mammoth 244-point lead over his teammate Fabian Coulthard.

But no driver has taken the Triple Crown since it was created in 2009 and while Lowndes believes McLaughlin has a great chance of doing it, he stressed there is a reason it hasn’t happened before.

F1 2019: Sebastian Vettel penalty, Canadian Grand Prix, Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo, news

Published

on

It was a poor decision from the stewards to hand an in-race five-second penalty to Sebastian Vettel in Montreal.

I don’t believe a penalty was due, but even so they could have investigated it after the race with the benefit of more time and data, and after speaking with both drivers.

I am not going to beat up on the stewards, they have the regulations, knowledge, footage, data, process and precedents to follow. You have to have rules and a referee otherwise you have anarchy and the whole thing would fall over.

F1 2019: Sebastian Vettel Canada Grand Prix penalty, Daniel Ricciardo slammed

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo should be penalised for a “dirty” move during the Canadian Grand Prix, according to Formula 1 legend Jacques Villeneuve.

Ricciardo steered his Renault through his best weekend of the year, finishing sixth.

However, the Australian star’s vital championship points are now under a cloud after Villeneuve on Tuesday night made fresh calls for him to face a punishment from FIA officials.

Ricciardo’s early-race defensive thrusts to block Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas were overshadowed by the huge drama surrounding the stewards’ decision to smack Sebastian Vettel with a five-second penalty which saw him surrender the race to championship leader Lewis Hamilton, despite crossing the line first.

Ferrari are appealing the decision of the stewards.
