Summer rendezvous for the squad in Argentina
After Uruguay, Argentina hosts round four and both China Racing drivers, Nelson Piquet and Ho-Pin Tung, aim at podium finish.
Daniel Ricciardo is enjoying the moment as he shows a clean pair of heels to F1’s reigning quadruple world champion.
Early in 2014, Red Bull’s fresh-faced newcomer Ricciardo settled in quickly and stunned the F1 world by generally outshining Vettel, the winner of the last four world titles and the last nine grands prix of 2013 on the trot.
The official FIA preview of this weekend’s Belgian grand prix overlooked arguably the most famous moment of Eliseo Salazar’s career.
Chilean Salazar, who will make his debut as the driver steward at Spa Francorchamps, contested races for minor F1 teams between 1981 and 1983, and also tasted action at the Indy 500, Le Mans, Daytona, Dakar and world rally.
Last Sunday proved that Pastor Maldonado is no mere ‘pay driver’.
“If he was a fool, he would not be with us, no matter how much money he brings,” Sir Frank Williams is quoted by Brazil’s Globo Esporte. Venezuelan Maldonado, whose links to the state owned oil company PDVSA and president Hugo Chavez controversially deliver many millions to Williams’ Oxfordshire based team, became F1’s fifth different winner of 2012 last weekend in Spain.
Romain Grosjean is a potential grand prix winner.
That is the claim of the Frenchman’s first F1 teammate Fernando Alonso, who shared the Renault team with Grosjean in 2009. The Enstone based team, however, was imploding amid the crashgate scandal, and Grosjean struggled to perform after being drafted in to replace the sacked Nelson Piquet.
