F1 news, Austrian Grand Prix 2019: Renault, Daniel Ricciardo, McLaren, French GP, latest standings, results

Published

Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul has stoked the flames with rivals McLaren by claiming Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg were just as fast as them during the French Grand Prix, despite both drivers losing out to their counterparts.

McLaren surprised everyone with their speed at Paul Ricard in practice – Ricciardo even jokingly suggested they had “secret upgrades” – before qualifying fifth and sixth for the race, compared to Renault’s eighth and 13th.

In the race, Carlos Sainz ran off alone to secure P6 while Lando Norris was plagued by a series of problems in the closing laps which saw both Hulkenberg and Ricciardo overtake him – although the latter was penalised for his moves to drop him to P11.

Ferrari have admitted it is now not clear whether they or improving Red Bull are Mercedes’ closest challengers, heading into this week’s German Grand Prix.

Ferrari started the season appearing to be the team most likely to take the fight to all-conquering Mercedes, but while their campaign has yet to truly ignite, Red Bull have been making steady improvements and impressed in Austria, which they won, and Silverstone last time out.​

“They have certainly improved in the last two races,” said Mattia Binotto, Ferrari’s team principal.

Published

The father of Valentino Rossi has defended his son as the Yamaha veteran toils through a dismal 2019 campaign.

Rossi, who turned 40 in February, has managed two podiums so far this season, but his 2019 charge was brought to a screaming halt following consecutive accidents at Mugello, Barcelona and Assen.

While just five points behind factory teammate Maverick Vinales in the standings, Rossi’s dreams of a tenth world title have already been quashed as Marc Marquez sprints towards a sixth premier class crown.

For only the second time this decade, Ford has sealed the Manufacturers’ Championship with Mustangs victorious in 16 of the season’s 18 races.

All six Mustangs are placed in the top 10 after the eighth round in Townsville. At the same stage 12 months ago, just three Mustangs sat in the top 10.
