F1 news 2020, Red Bull, Alex Albon, driver line up 2021, Daniel Ricciardo, Hulkenberg, Perez, latest, silly season

Published

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has insisted the team will not replace its another driver in the middle of the season, despite Alexander Albon’s poor showing since swapping over with Pierre Gasly last year.

Gasly made the step up Toro Rosso – now AlphaTauri – to replace Daniel Ricciardo at the start of last season but was replaced by British-Thai driver Alexander Albon midway through the campaign, with the Frenchman returning to Red Bull’s junior team.

However, while Gasly has been impressive in his bounce back, securing a shock maiden first grand prix victory, Albon has struggled and claimed just the one podium since.

He is currently down in eighth in the driver standings, nearly 100 points behind teammate Max Verstappen with Ricciardo, Charles Leclerc, Sergio Perez and Lando Norris all ahead of him despite being in slower cars.

Published

Former F1 world champion Alan Jones has taken a surprise dig at countryman Daniel Ricciardo, saying he “should give it up” if he’s not fully aware of the dangers of motor racing.

Ricciardo said he was disgusted and disappointed with F1 for repeatedly showing replays of Romain Grosjean’s heart-stopping crash at the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday.

The Frenchman flew at around 250 km/h into the barriers which buckled, splitting his car in two before it burst into a massive fireball.
