Daniel Ricciardo sets fastest time in F1 pre-season testing; Aussie Red Bull star Daniel Ricciardo

Published

on

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.

But he’ll have to overcome a radical new weekend schedule – with no Friday running and just one practice session on Saturday – which puts plenty of additional pressure on every team in the paddock.

Fernando Alonso will step up his preparations for a return to Formula One next year with a two-day test in Bahrain next week, his Renault team said Friday.

The former two-time world champion will try out the R.S.18 model from the 2018 season, having driven an F1 car for the first time in nearly 18 months in Barcelona in mid-October.

Alonso, 39, had not been in an F1 car since a test session for McLaren in Bahrain in April 2019 and had not raced one since the 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, also with McLaren, at the end of his 17th season.

Not content with dominating Down Under, Scott McLaughlin is set to be the top dog in America within three years.

That’s the time frame for success Team Penske has placed on their newest IndyCar recruit.

“Tim Cindric (Team Penske President) said a couple of top tens, top 15 next year, maybe push the top five bracket in ‘22 and then if we can challenge for wins and potentially a championship in my 3rd year that would be good progression,” McLaughlin told Fox Sports’ Loud Pedal Podcast.
