Raikkonen, Ricciardo or Vergne for 2014: Horner

Jul 5 2013, 12:54pm CDT | by

Nurburg (Germany), July 5 (IANS) Formula 1 team Red Bull's team principal Christian Horner Friday said that Kimi Raikkonen, Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne are the likely contenders to replace Mark Webber as world vhampion Sebastian Vettel's teammate in 2014.

Nurburg (Germany), July 5 — Formula 1 team Red Bull's team principal Christian Horner Friday said that Kimi Raikkonen, Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne are the likely contenders to replace Mark Webber as world vhampion Sebastian Vettel's teammate in 2014.

Australian Webber announced last week that he will bring an end to his Formula 1 career at the end of this season. Ever since the announcement, rumours have begun about who would replace him next season.

"We are in the fortunate position not to be short of choice. We'll take our time to make the right decision. Red Bull Racing is a world championship winning team and wants to put the best drivers in our cars," the Briton was quoted as saying on Formula1.com.

Horner confirmed the speculations that Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso's drivers, Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne, and former world vhampion Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus are in the race for the seat.

"If one of the drivers can be of the junior team that will purely be based on merit. Both the juniors (Ricciardo and Vergne) are contenders, and also one or two drivers that are out of contract at the end of the year. There are a lot of drivers without contract at the end of the year but the reality is that it will boil down to three drivers: the two juniors and Kimi."

Asked about their chances this weekend at the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, the 39-year-old said: "This is Sebastian's home race and it would be fantastic for him to win here. Mark won his first ever Grand Prix here in 2009, so we have good memories. Sebastian has a fantastic home crowd here - that should propel him and us. In the end, this race carries the same amount of points as any other weekend and we want to win them all."

Le Hungaroring à la loupe

Jul 23 2014 10:57am CDT | Source: f1i.com

F1 Grand Prix of Germany
Le Hungaroring est un circuit qui n’a a priori pas grand-chose pour lui. Surnommée le tourniquet, la piste magyare pourrait se résumer à un enchaînement interminable de virages lents qui n’est interrompu que par la seule ligne droite de départ et d’arrivée. Le trafic y est dense tant le tracé est court (à peine 4,381 km) et la piste étroite (quinze mètres de large maximum, contre vingt pour la plupart des nouveaux circuits). Autant dire que ce rendez-vous hongrois n’est pas de ...

"La course se passait bien jusqu’au deuxième arrêt, lors duquel j’ai pris une pénalité de cinq secondes", a réagi JEV, treizième à l’arrivée. "Je n’ai pas trop compris !

Lotus et Toro Rosso en mauvaise posture

Spanish F1 Grand Prix - Race
Alors que le règlement prévoit que chaque voiture utilise cinq propulseurs pour la saison complète, Lotus et Toro Rosso ont déjà atteint ce quota pour certains composants. Rappelons que si un concurrent recourt à un sixième moteur complet, il prendra le départ de la course depuis la voie des stands. La règle varie s’il utilise seulement un nouvel élément parmi les six composants constituant un propulseur : turbo, V6 thermique, MGU-K (ancien ...

La saison est à mi-parcours ce week-end à Hockenheim, et certaines équipes sont déjà dans une situation critique en ce qui concerne la fiabilité de leur propulseur.
