Daniel Ricciardo news, F1 2019, Renault F1, Mexican F1 GP

Published

on

A late charge to sixth in the Japanese Grand Prix has Daniel Ricciardo confident of a late-season push with Renault as he looks to maintain a top 10 season finish.

Ricciardo surged from 16th following a difficult qualifying in Suzuka, with the Australian fighting through the field twice to register just his third top six finish this season.

Considering the tightness of the midfield battle, it was a vital result for Ricciardo — just 11 points separate Ricciardo in ninth to Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen in 14th in the standings ahead of this weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix.

The topsy-turvy form of Renault has left the team in an uncomfortable position, with McLaren now 34 points ahead in fourth in the constructors’ standings, with Toro Rosso 18 points behind.

F1, news 2019: Nico Hulkenberg, Daniel Ricciardo, Renault, new driver, future, latest

Published

on

Nico Hulkenberg insists he’s not retiring from Formula 1 but is resigned to losing his place on the grid next year, with the German opening up to Sky F1’s Martin Brundle about his “sad” departure and future ambitions.

Hulkenberg, a highly-rated driver with 10 years of experience in the sport, will be replaced by Esteban Ocon at Renault in F1 2020 as his partnership with Aussie Daniel Ricciardo is broken up.

Ricciardo outperformed Hulkenberg in his debut season with the French outfit and sits four places above his stablemate in the drivers’ championship, prompting Renault to drop the F1 veteran.

Although Hulkenberg was initially confident of securing his stay, his options have fallen away in recent months and there is now only one unconfirmed seat, at Williams.

Jamie Whincup and the Red Bull Holden Racing Team have combined to land the first blow on the streets of Newcastle, with the seven-time champion ousting Cameron Waters and teammate Shane van Gisbergen in a hotly-contested Practice 2.

Whincup launched to P1 late in the 30-minute session to set a session-best 1:10.3173s – but Waters’ #5 Monster Energy Mustang was just 0.0057s down the road, with van Gisbergen a further 0.0549s down.

The top eight were separated by a scant 0.1301s, with Practice 1 fast man Scott McLaughlin fourth in the session, just 0.0666s down on Whincup’s lap.
