F1 2020: Daniel Ricciardo McLaren move questioned, Renault departure

Published

on

Two leading Formula 1 journalists have poured cold water on expectations Daniel Ricciardo’s bombshell move to McLaren will put him closer to the front of the grid.

The 30-year-old Aussie last week stunned the Formula 1 grid when his multi-year contract with the English team was announced just days after reports Sebastian Vettel would be replaced by Carlos Sainz at Ferrari.

McLaren appeared a team on the rise heading into 2020 after leap-frogging Renault to finish fourth in the constructor’s championship last year — but leading reporters are now publicly questioning the logic behind Ricciardo’s big gamble.

F1 news 2021, Monaco Grand Prix, cancelled, Canada, Azerbaijan, reports, race calendar, latest

Published

on

Monaco Grand Prix organisers have insisted that the iconic Formula One race will go ahead this season, despite whispers that it would suffer a second cancellation in as many years.

Like the Australian Grand Prix last year, the Monaco edition was shelved due to COVID-19 as F1 decided to focus on ready-built circuits to fill the makeshift calendar, rather than temporary street circuits.

And with the Aus GP now being shifted from its traditional home as the season curtain raiser to a new November date, Monaco has now come under the spotlight.

A Dutch newspaper has claimed that Monaco, along with Azerbaijan and Canada, is in danger of being removed from the 2021 calendar as F1 again panics over the street races and the time it takes to build infrastructure for those events given the ongoing COVID pandemic.

In the early years of his career, Nick Percat went from winning Bathurst on his first attempt in 2011 – the first rookie in 30 years to do so – to winning the Australian Formula Ford championship and breaking Steven Richards’ record for most race wins.

It hasn’t all been smooth sailing since then, with the veteran facing a turbulent journey with mixed results.

Talking to FoxSports.com.au, the 32-year-old opens up on the decision to re-sign with Brad Jones Racing, what the future of Supercars could look like, and that disqualification from the 2020 Bathurst 1000.
