    The 1998 Spa incident wasn't Coulthard's fault anyway.
    The stewards concluded that it was a racing incident and that Coulthard had no case to answer.

    Well, it looks like a canopy atop a Halo.

    As far as efficiency, I don't know. To me it looks like it would add drag.

    Red Bull opens the market: he wants Hulkenberg if he does not renew his confidence in Gasly

    In the Principality there was a first contact with the German who at the end of the year will see his contract with Renault expire. Marko and Horner would be happy to make a trip to the transalpine brand, especially since Nico goes as Ricciardo and Milton Keynes know the value of Daniel.

    In the weekend of Monte Carlo, a first indiscretion involving the top-team drivers market was leaked, and the combination has surprised a lot.

    These are approaches aimed at having 'backup' solutions ready if not everything goes as planned in the plans of a top team.

    As per tradition, the pilots who approach Red Bull and Toro Rosso do not have much time to convince Helmut Marko to claim the investment made, and at this time Pierre Gasly has not yet reached the 'comfort zone' of those who can look to future with full optimism.


    The Frenchman confirmed a step in the right direction starting from the Baku race, but something more is needed to navigate in calm waters, and it is not really easy when his teammate is called Max Verstappen, a confrontation that would be challenging for all riders present in Formula 1.

    Red Bull usually draws on the family nursery in case of need, but right now Helmut Marko does not seem to be one hundred percent convinced of the goodness of the internal choice. Alexander Albon is growing well, but he must take the time to mature, while Daniil Kvyat remains a question mark after having had a great chance of relaunching Toro Rosso.

    That is why during the weekend in Munich there was a contact with Nico Hulkenberg, who at the end of the season will conclude his three-year agreement with Renault.

    There are several reasons that explain Red Bull's interest in German, and are not limited to its availability on the market.

    Hulkenberg in this first phase of the 2019 season has confirmed himself to be up to Daniel Ricciardo, his new team-mate, and Marko knows the value of the Australian very well.

    In addition there is an always open game between Red Bull and Renault, with the French team that in the last market drivers has managed to blow Ricciardo to the Milton Keynes team with a considerable economic offer.

    Cyril Abiteboul and Christian Horner last summer continued to tease each other, from the farewell of the supply of engines to the super-offer to Ricciardo.

    "Now you need a pilot and an engine," Abiteboul told Horner at Spa, with the Englishman who replied dryly:
    "Now that you have spent all your money for a pilot, will you still have some money to spend on the engine?"

    These are the past, and not a few of them had foreseen the possibility that Red Bull could go to probe the current Renault driver. In any case, even if Hulkenberg will remain with the French team, providing a driver with an alternative certainly helps him to increase his economic claims, a perfect disturbing action, but not only. Because every final decision will depend on Gasly's performance.

    Interesting. I don't think Gasly is out of the wood yet.

    [Motorsport] Honda believes engine can now hit required mileage target.

    "It always depends on how you use it. If you use it very easily you can achieve high mileage. If you push hard, it's shorter mileage. We're looking for a balance," says Tanabe

    So they take the V8s for marketing purposes? What will they think in Hanoi once the F1 circus arrives with the v6 hybrids?

    Talk about misleading publicity stunts :D

    Totally agree. Give them credit though, they're the only one's promoting "F1" at these new venues aside from MB or Ferrari. RB are like the psuedo-ambassadors of F1.
    They even were at Miami which proved a "dud".

    I suppose they get paid by Liberty for all this promotional work.
