F1 news, British Grand Prix 2019: Daniel Ricciardo, Renault, upgrades, Nico Hulkenberg, standings

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo has revealed he is “suspicious” of his Renault’s new set-up after recent upgrades have resulted in a downturn in performance ahead of this weekend’s British Grand Prix.

Renault have had a bumpy ride this year after their pre-season bravado about closing the gap on Red Bull having finished ‘best of the rest’ in 2018.

However, they have been gazumped to that honour this so far this season by McLaren, who also use Renault engines.

Since a best return of sixth and seventh in Canada, Renault have been shown up by not only Renault, but also Alfa Romeo, who also saw both cars finished ahead of Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg in Austria.

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.

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.
