F1 2019: Mercedes dominance, Daniel Ricciardo, Ferrari; Sebstian Vettel

Published

on

We witnessed a fifth Mercedes 1-2 in five races, on the back of their five seasons of championship dominance. That’s as impressive as it is challenging as we crave some variety and surprises in F1.

I woke up feeling a little disappointed on Monday morning after what may apparently be the last Spanish GP for a while. Frustrated with Mercedes, Ferrari, and Formula 1 itself.

Mercedes for being so damned good at everything F1 these days.

A vast group of calm, mature, experienced, professional people, all rowing in the same direction and resourced and empowered to dominate their rivals. The cut-and-paste nature of their dominance is painful right now, always remembering that over the decades one team has often dominated for a while, be it Ferrari, Williams, McLaren, Red Bull, Renault, Lotus, and so on.

F1 news, Monaco Grand Prix 2019: Ferrari veto rule, Red Bull, Williams, Renault, new regulations

Published

on

Ferrari’s status in Formula One has been labelled “silly”, “outdated” and “makes no sense” by team principals of rival teams in the paddock.

Ferrari are in the unique position of being able to veto new F1 rules and regulations have had the ability to do so for decades.

With teams deep in discussions over the planned changes for the 2021 season, Ferrari are expected to keep their veto option.

Indy 500 news 2019: Indianapolis, Will Power, Chevrolet, 2018 winner, result, interview, Borg-Warner trophy, Team Penske, latest

May 27th 2018 was a big day for Australian motorsport.

Daniel Ricciardo had finally just won the Monaco Grand Prix after years of being the nearly man and a few hours later in Indianapolis, Will Power claimed the Indy 500.

For the last 12 months two thirds of the motorsport Triple Crown has been held by Australians.

While things have taken a turn for the worst for Ricciardo, his Renault has little-to-no chance of even a podium on Sunday, Power is still right at the front of the field and is confident he can repeat his 2018 heroics.

F1 news, Monaco Grand Prix 2019: Practice 1, 2 results, Daniel Ricciardo, Renault, timings, timesheet, latest, highlights

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo has rued the changes made to his Renault between first and second practice at the Monaco Grand Prix on Thursday which saw him slid down towards the bottom of the timesheets.

The Aussie ended FP1 in P11, with the sister Renault of Nico Hulkenberg in P7 in what was a largely encouraging session for the so-far underperforming French manufacturer.

Ricciardo and his team both identified areas where they felt changes could be made for the second session but those tweaks saw the duo drop down to P16 and P17, with only Lance Stroll and the Williams duo slower than 2018’s race winner here.
