F1 2020: Sebastian Vettel Red Bull dream, Ferrari nightmare outlook revealed

Published

on

Sebastian Vettel’s time is reportedly up with the discarded Ferrari star to this week announce his next team in Formula 1.

The 33-year-old was earlier this month reported to be in negotiations with Racing Point Aston Martin, but a report this week claims the German star is holding out for another team.

Vettel’s dream scenario has emerged as a return to Red Bull in 2021, Germany’s Auto Bild reports.

Vettel famously walked out of Red Bull to join Ferrari in 2015 after being shown up by Aussie Daniel Ricciardo, but the English-based team is now reported to be his preference of the options available to him.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner earlier this year dismissed having any interest in bringing Vettel back to the team to partner Max Verstappen, the report claims Red Bull hasn’t closed the door on Vettel behind the scenes.

Daniel Ricciardo once again put in another strong showing at Silverstone as he qualified in P5 for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix this weekend.

The Australian has shown good pace all weekend and only just missed out on the second row of the grid, despite putting in his time on intermediate tires, rather than the softs that the majority of the pack were on.

That means he will start on mediums compared to the others, meaning theoretically he should be able to go for longer than his rivals without pitting.

“That’s a cracking time from Ricciardo,” Sky Sports’ Martin Brundle said after the lap that set his qualifying time.

Ricciardo himself was also delighted, having finished fifth last week, his joint-best ever finish in a Renault.

Formula One, 70th Anniversary Grand Prix Qualifying, 11pm AEST —

Daniel Ricciardo is hoping to replicate his best day in a Renault this season after finishing Friday’s second practice session in a stunning third.

While the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas comfortably topped the timesheets in both practice sessions, Ricciardo stunned the paddock with a scorching lap to pip Red Bull’s Max Verstappen to third on the timesheets.

It left the Aussie crowing about ‘genuine’ pace – and targeting a first podium since Monaco 2018.

Published

Daniel Ricciardo is eyeing his first podium finish in more than two years after showing “genuine” pace during practice for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.

Hamilton bounced back to top the times ahead of Valtteri Bottas on Friday but it was Ricciardo that was making waves with a scorching lap narrowly quicker than former Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen.

Ricciardo — who hasn’t stood on an F1 podium since winning the 2018 Monaco Grand Prix — now sees a third-placed finish as a realistic possibility for the first time in a Renault.
