Max Verstappen could work closely with stewards from another motorsport category as part of his Formula One ‘public service’ punishment.

The Red Bull driver was handed two days of ‘public service’ after repeatedly shoving former Force India driver Esteban Ocon after the two clashed at the Brazilian Grand Prix last month.

Verstappen, the race leader, tried to pass Ocon, the backmarker, but the two colliding and span off the track, allowing Lewis Hamilton to win and the fuming Dutchman to get home in second.

Daniel Ricciardo and Renault have again set tongues wagging at pre-season testing in Barcelona, but not everything is as rosy as it seems.

The Australian set the track alight during the morning session on the fourth day of testing, producing the third quickest time, behind the Toro Rosso of Alex Albon. It comes after he surprised plenty by running third fastest on day three of testing after a lame opening day and mechanical problems on day two.

Albon set the second fastest overall time of testing of 1:17.637 on Pirelli’s softest compound, while Ricciardo, running the same tyre put in a 1:17.785. His Renault teammate Nico Hulkenberg was quickest of the lot, denying Toro Rosso a second successive appearance at the top of the end-of-day charts with a new benchmark lap of 1:17.393 on Pirelli’s fastest tyres.

However, his Renault soon afterwards broke down on track.

Speaking afterwards, Ricciardo said he was pleased with how his first week at his new team had gone.
