DANIEL Ricciardo made a promising start to Formula One’s pre-season by driving his Red Bull to the fastest time and the most laps on the track near Barcelona.

Ricciardo clocked 1 minute, 20.179 seconds before rain and cold track temperatures that dipped below seven degrees kept most cars off the tarmac.

The Aussie star bucked that trend and braved the poor conditions to be the only driver to reach the 100-lap mark.

Defending champion Lewis Hamilton managed to get in 25 laps before the weather turned unfavourable after teammate Valtteri Bottas had his turn behind the wheel for Mercedes.

Formula 1 2021: F1 news, Mercedes new car, Mercedes-AMG F1 W12 E Performance, Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas

Published

The Mercedes Formula One team despite seven successive constructors titles possesses the “same fire, hunger and passion” says team principal Toto Wolff as when he arrived in 2013.

The 49-year-old Austrian’s remarks came as the team launched its car for the 2021 season, one which they hope will culminate in Lewis Hamilton winning a record eighth drivers’ title.

The Mercedes-AMG F1 W12 E Performance builds on the solid base of its predecessor but includes considerable aerodynamic changes alongside improvements to areas as such as the suspension, cooling system and Power Unit.

But like their crafty rivals in Red Bull, the heavyweight team wasn’t giving everything away about its new design, not divulging where it had both allowable development ‘tokens’ on major changes to the car.

Lewis Hamilton said Tuesday that winning a record-breaking eighth world championship in 2021 would not be the determining factor in whether he quits after the season.

The attempt to land a drivers’ crown that would move the 36-year-old Briton above Michael Schumacher to become the most decorated driver in the sport’s history will go hand-in-hand with the issue of his future in Formula One.

“I’ve made a really important decision in my mind, that I don’t want that to be the deciding factor,” Hamilton said in a conference call at the launch of the Mercedes car for 2021.
