F1 2020, Australia Grand Prix, Friday Practice times, standings, report: Red Bull protest Mercedes DAS

Published

on

Red Bull plunged Formula One into a technical argument on the opening day of the belated season on Friday when they lodged an official protest of Mercedes’ dual-axis steering (DAS) system after opening practice at the Austrian Grand Prix.

Just hours after seeing Mercedes duo of six-time champion Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas top the times with a resounding one-two in their newly-painted ‘black arrows’ cars, it was confirmed that Red Bull had made a formal protest against them.

Team chief Christian Horner had said earlier Friday that he intended to ask for guidance from the race officials about the legality of the system.

“Maybe he should just wipe this weekend and see how he goes turning up to Austria next weekend but it’s Marc Marquez, he’s a multiple world champion … if they declare him fit and he wants to have a go, who’s going to stop him?” Vermeulen said.

Formula 1: Lewis Hamilton, British Grand Prix, news, result, F1, Silverstone

Published

on

Lewis Hamilton is uncatchable in this year’s drivers’ world championship, according to his main rivals.

Both Max Verstappen of Red Bull and Charles Leclerc of Ferrari effectively conceded the title on Sunday after the British Grand Prix as the six-time champion claimed his third straight.

That the championship leader completed the race on three wheels made no difference to their view that the only man with a chance of overhauling Hamilton is his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.
