F1 news, Chinese Grand Prix 2019: Daniel Ricciardo, Ferrari, Renault, Red Bull, Charles Leclerc, Martin Brundle column

Published

Ferrari simply didn’t have the pace to challenge Mercedes at the Chinese GP, whether they attacked, defended, swapped or blocked. And with Red Bull not fulfilling all of their potential at the moment this created a rather ordinary race upfront.

As the famous five red lights extinguished Lewis Hamilton’s first job in the GP, from second on the grid, was to balance the throttle pedal and clutch lever for the best launch with minimal wheelspin. He did this to great effect and the race was effectively his in the first few hundred meters.

Valtteri Bottas, from pole position, had some wheelspin as he crossed a white painted line in front of his grind slot and was probably lucky to remain in second by the exit of the T1/2/3/4 complex.

Silverstone MotoGP 2019, Alex Rins, Marc Marquez finish video, Andrea Dovizioso crash video

Alex Rins had a day to remember as he defeated Marc Marquez on the line to win the British Grand Prix, but confusion nearly cost the Suzuki rider a second premier class win.

Rins and Marquez were locked in battle at Silverstone in a race that was decided by a mere 0.013s, with the former sneaking inside the championship leader exiting the final corner on the final lap.

However, Rins admitted his “very big mistake” in losing track of the laps in the race, which left him guessing until the chequered flag flew.

Silverstone MotoGP 2019, crash video, Andrea Dovizioso, Fabio Quartararo

Published

Andrea Dovizioso and Fabio Quartararo have both escaped serious injury after being hospitalised following their shocking Lap 1 crash at Silverstone.

While the race was memorable for the last-gasp finish between Alex Rins and Marc Marquez, it began with high drama as Quartararo fell and wiped out Dovizioso at the high speed Copse corner.

Quartararo highsided exiting the first corner of the race and Dovizioso had nowhere to go, the Ducati rider flying off Quartararo’s Yamaha and landing heavily in the run-off area.

That’s the situation facing Scott McLaughlin after he equalled Craig Lowndes’ record of race wins in a season.

McLaughlin took his 16th win of 2019 at the OTR SuperSprint on Sunday, and drew level with the record set by Lowndes 23 years ago.
