• Russell lays the blame on Grosjean for Singapore crash

    Il y a 1 mois - Par F1i

    George Russell blamed Romain Grosjean for his retirement from Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix, the Williams charger hitting the wall after a contact with the Haas driver.
    The pair were battling for position down the field when Grosjean lunged on the outside of Russell into Turn 8 before clipping the Williams' left-rear tyre on the exit.
    The contact pitched Russell into the wall while the Frenchman was allowed to continue his way on to a P11 finish.
    "I shouldn't be surprised," quipped a fuming Russell over the radio as he exited his stricken car.

    Kvyat slams Raikkonen for moving under braking

    Daniil Kvyat claims that Kimi Raikkonen was guilty of 'suiciding himself' in going to such lengths to stop the Toro Rosso from getting past in the concluding laps of Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix.
    The pair were scrapping over 12th place with 12 laps remaining in the night race when the incident occurred. Kvyat was attempting to find a way around the Alfa Romeo when they ran too deep into the first corner.
    Raikkonen's front suspension was wrecked by the contact and he was forced to retire, triggering a late safety car. Kvyat was able to resume and went on to finish the race in 15th...

    Binotto explains Ferrari's strategy on Vettel undercut

    Il y a 1 mois - Par F1i

    Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has explained why the team opted to call in Sebastian Vettel very early during Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix.
    With the early laps of the race having proved particularly slow, the decision allowed Vettel to undercut his team mate Charles Leclerc who had been leading for the first 19 laps of the race.
    "It was a very late call obviously," Vettel said of the team's move to bring him in on lap 14. "I thought it was a bit early because I wasn't sure whether we could make the tyres last in the second stint.
    "But obviously I gave it everything in the outlap...

    Antonio Giovinazzi was handed a 10-second time penalty by the Singapore Grand Prix stewards for driving too close to a crane, but the Alfa Romeo driver holds on to his P10 finish.
    The incident occurred after lap 34 when a crane was sent out on the track during the race's first safety car period to retrieve the stricken Williams of George Russell.
    While drivers were warned to hold their right at the exit of Turn 8, Giovinazzi was deemed to be too close to the marshals as he rushed past.

    Max Verstappen declared himself happy with a podium finish in Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix after disappointing outings in Spa and Monza.
    Red Bull had come into the race as one of the favourites to win, but ultimately never seemed to be fully up to the pace of their rivals at Marina Bay.
    After qualifying in fourth place on a circuit where overtaking is notoriously tricky, Verstappen knew that the best he would be able to do was get a podium place at the end of the 61-lap, two hour race.

    Charles Leclerc was putting on a calm and diplomatic front after coming second in the Singapore Grand Prix, but he was clearly unhappy with the Ferrari strategy that had cost him a chance of hat-trick of victories.
    Leclerc started on pole and led for the first 19 laps of the race, but when he came back on track following his pit stop he found himself behind his team mate Sebastian Vettel, who had already made his own stop a few laps earlier.
    "What the hell?" said a startled Leclerc over the team radio, asking for an explanation as to how the tables had been turned.

    Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes must stop dragging its feet and step up its efforts to counter Ferrari's three-race winning streak.
    The reigning world champion concluded his Singapore Grand Prix weekend with a fourth-place finish behind Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, Charles Leclerc and Red Bull's Max Verstappen, a defeat Hamilton put down to the German outfit's questionable strategy call at Marina Bay.
    Both Hamilton and teammate Valtteri Bottas endured a long first stint as their team prioritized tyre wear in order to rely on fresher rubber for the final stage of the 61-lap event.
