F1 2020: Lewis Hamilton Mercedes future in doubt after Bernie Ecclestone prediction Toto Wolff will go to Aston Martin

Published

Lewis Hamilton’s future at Mercedes was thrown into further doubt by a bombshell from Bernie Ecclestone that Toto Wolff might leave for Aston Martin.

The six-time world champion is out of contract with Mercedes at the end of the 2020 season and mulling his next move.

Hamilton, 35, has said in the past that staying with the German powerhouse largely depends on whether team principal Wolff sticks around.

Holden’s commitment to the Supercars championship will formally end at the completion of the 2020 season.

The manufacturer has revised its agreement with Triple Eight Race Engineering to provide factory support for the Red Bull Holden Racing Team after the news earlier this year that the brand would be retired by parent company General Motors.

While Holden’s contract with Triple Eight originally ran until the end of the 2021 campaign, an agreement has been reached to terminate the contract a year early.

F1 2020, Mercedes: Reverse grid unlikely when season starts in Austria

Published

on

A proposal to introduce reverse-grid races when Formula 1 returns next month is unlikely to be accepted due to opposition from Mercedes – with Red Bull boss Christian Horner telling Sky Sports that Toto Wolff believes it “would interfere with Lewis Hamilton’s championship campaign”.

There has been a fresh push for an experimental sprint race – where the leader of the championship would start at the back – to replace qualifying and determine Sunday’s grid order at tracks which are due to host two races this year to create more unpredictability for the second event.

Austria and Silverstone are both set for back-to-back F1 weekends this summer, with Spielberg kicking off the campaign in early July.

Daniel Ricciardo has added his voice to the Black Lives Matter movement, branding the death of George Floyd as a “disgrace”.

The Australian F1 driver took to Instagram on Monday, speaking out against racism and calling for society to improve.

His message came soon after Lewis Hamilton — F1’s only black driver — slammed his colleagues for a mute response over Floyd, who died at the hands of a white police officer who pressed his knee on his neck.
