Published

Daniel Ricciardo has cheekily fooled fans after being roasted for what appeared to be a poor example of geography knowledge from the Aussie F1 star.

Ricciardo has been on holiday in the United States during the season break, taking time off before he gets back behind the wheel this year in new colours.

It seems though that wherever he goes, Ricciardo is taking his humour along with him and some of his fans fell for his latest gag.

Australian Grand Prix set to be postponed

Published

on

Formula One great Alan Jones says only a “bloody miracle” will allow the Australian Grand Prix to go ahead in March and that a rescheduled 2021 Melbourne race is “better than nothing”.

An Autosport report has suggested that the opening round of this year’s Formula One competition, scheduled for Melbourne on March 21, will be postponed because of Australia’s tough travel restrictions and fears over the emergence of a new strain of COVID-19.

The March 28 race in Bahrain is reportedly now set to become the season-opening contest, with an August date now being mooted for the Melbourne race.

Jones, only one of two Australians to win the World Drivers’ Championship, said the public’s health had to be the priority, and that the season would run the risk of being “compromised” if the Melbourne race opened the year’s program in March.

“I have always loved the idea of Australia hosting the first round, because we’re the first ones to see new driver-car combinations, new regulations put into place … we’re very fortunate that we’ve able to host the first round,” Jones said.
