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.

IMPRESSIVE F1 rookie Lando Norris has urged Lewis Hamilton to “stick around” in the sport until McLaren are competing at the front again so that the two British drivers can race each other.

Norris and Hamilton are both enjoying superb seasons; the McLaren youngster has made a dazzling start to his career, while Hamilton is on course for a sixth world title and nearing Michael Schumacher’s records.

But although McLaren have made huge improvements in F1 2019, Norris believes he won’t be able to battle Hamilton wheel-to-wheel for at least another two years – and the world champion’s current contract at Mercedes expires at the end of next season.

SILVERSTONE was the scene of last weekend’s dramatic Formula 1 race, but memories at the venue are much more anxious for MotoGP.

A lack of drainage, coupled with the deterioration of asphalt laid in 2018, led to the cancellation of last year’s MotoGP race at Silverstone. Fans went home empty-handed as MotoGP said there was “no option” to rearrange the race on the Monday.

At the time, MotoGP race director Mike Webb blamed the then-new surface.
