Abu Dhabi F1 GP, F1 news 2019, DRS fail F1, Valtteri Bottas

Published

on

The FIA confirmed a data server crash in race control was the reason behind the Drag Reduction System (DRS) being disabled for the first third of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Introduced in 2011, DRS is normally enabled on Lap 3 of races, but the FIA spotted the issue just prior to the third lap at the Yas Marina Circuit, and alerted teams of the drama.

The issue was resolved on Lap 18 of the 55-lap race, which was dominated by world champion Lewis Hamilton.

His Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas started plumb last in 20th, but managed to recover to fourth by the chequered flag.

F1 Lewis Hamilton to Ferrari rumours: Louis Camilleri confirms conversations to place

Published

on

Ferrari chief executive officer Louis Camilleri says it’s premature to talk about a possible move of six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton to the Italian team.

Camilleri confirmed that Mercedes driver Hamilton has had “conversations” with Ferrari chairman John Elkann, but not with him nor Team Principal Mattia Binotto.

“It is common knowledge that Lewis has had conversations with (Elkann),” Camilleri told reporters at Ferrari headquarters at Maranello.

“(But) that was a little exaggerated. While it was at a social event, they have mutual friends,” said Camilleri, adding that “it would be premature to decide anything today.”
