Three drivers set for grid penalties in Silverstone

  Valtteri Bottas, Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso will all start the British Grand Prix from a lower position than from wherever they will qualify on Saturday.  Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas received a five-place drop penalty due to an unscheduled gearbox change after Friday's practice sessions at Silverstone, just a week after his team-mate Lewis Hamilton endured the same fate. Stewards handed similar penalty to Daniel Ricciardo, whose Red Bull was also fitted a new gearbox on Friday as the previous one has not lasted the mandatory six […]

Daniel Ricciardo set the sixth fastest time in both practice sessions on Friday and reckons the team's performance can improve tomorrow, but not enough to overcome the top two teams in the championship standings. His team mate, Max Verstappen, finished FP1 on fourth and FP2 on fifth.  As Sochi is not one of Red Bull's favourite tracks, the team was already expecting a tough weekend here, the aim being to limit de damage and score as much as possible. The gap to Mercedes and Ferrari looks bigger in […]

Could Red Bull beat Hamilton in Sepang?

One of the best Grands Prix of the season featured close racing, heartbreak for Lewis Hamilton with a late race engine failure and a fascinating strategic battle at the heart of it, as Red Bull challenged Mercedes in a war game. For the second season in a row the dominant Mercedes team did not win in Malaysia, as Nico Rosberg fell to 21st at the start and Red Bull split the strategies across its two cars to attack Hamilton. There is much to digest and […]

Could Singapore have had a different winner?

This year’s Singapore Grand Prix was one of the most interesting races of the season from a strategy point of view. It showed that when the performance of the leading cars is closely matched, the strategy possibilities created by having three different tyre compounds make for unpredictable racing and close finishes. There was a great deal of variation in the decisions made before and during the Grand Prix and some big decisions to be analysed, which gained places for some and cost places for others. […]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Emmanuel Ogbah

Oklahoma State: The Bucs are another team that needs to generate more pressure, especially off the edge considering many of their sacks come from Pro Bowl DT Gerald McCoy.40.

Ricciardo: Red Bull pace is genuine

Daniel Ricciardo reckons Red Bull's pace during practice at the Hungarian Grand Prix is genuine as he placed second to Mercedes' Nico Rosberg, albeit over half a second down on the German. Ricciardo's lap on Super Soft tyres was 0.595s down on Rosberg, though he was able to finish three-tenths clear of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel at the Hungaroring. "We’re looking pretty good," he said. "We would like to be a bit closer to Mercedes. At the moment we’re sitting second best. We’re a bit quicker […]
