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."

With the 2014 United States Grand Prix just days away, Fernando Alonso continues to run rings around anyone trying to find out what his plans are for 2015. All he'll say is that people will, apparently, be very excited when he finally makes his revelation. Marcus Ericsson's 2015 plans are also uncertain, but reports have surfaced linking him (and his $20 million annual backing) with Sauber. A third driver unsure of ...

Le COTA à la loupe

Oct 31 2014 2:57am CDT | Source: f1i.com

Le Circuit des Amériques situé à Austin est le dixième lieu à accueillir un Grand Prix des États-Unis dans l’histoire de la Formule 1. Il a été conçu par l’architecte Hermann Tilke qui a sans aucun doute réalisé là son plus beau projet. Avec vingt virages, ce circuit est le troisième plus tortueux du calendrier après Singapour et Abou Dhabi. La première courbe (T1) est certainement la plus emblématique tant elle peut offrir d’impre ...

Vergne : Je suis la meilleure option pour Toro Rosso

Oct 30 2014 12:58pm CDT | Source: f1i.com

Jean-Eric Vergne déclare être le meilleur choix pour Toro Rosso pour la saison 2015. L’équipe de Faenza a encore un baquet de titulaire à pourvoir pour l’an prochain, aux côtés du jeune Max Verstappen, après la promotion de Daniil Kvyat chez Red Bull pour remplacer Sebastian Vettel, en partance pour Ferrari. Toro Rosso dispose d’une liste de quatre candidats. Outre Vergne, elle pourrait tout aussi bien engager Carlos Sainz Jr (titré en Formule Renault 3.5), l ...

Les enjeux du Grand Prix des États-Unis

Drôle de climat Avec 100 points restant à distribuer jusqu’à la fin du championnat et un facteur “fiabilité” demeurant toujours critique, l’avance de 17 points que détient Lewis Hamilton sur son équipier Nico Rosberg ne pèse pas si lourd que cela du point de vue arithmétique (le verdict final devrait se jouer à Abou Dhabi, sauf si Hamilton inscrit 33 unités de plus que Rosberg lors des deux prochaines manches). Du point de vue psychologique, en revanche, la série de quatre victoires du pi ...

Can Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat Fill the Gap Left by Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull?

What a difference a year makes. Tuesday marked 12 months since Scuderia Toro Rosso announced the signing of somebody called Daniil Kvyat to replace Daniel Ricciardo, who was on his way to world champions Red Bull to succeed Mark Webber, from the 2014 Formula One season. Toro Rosso's statement last October was a bolt out of the blue to those who had long expected Antonio Felix da Costa, the highly rated Portuguese driver, to partner Jean-Eric Vergne for this season, with Kvyat ba ...

Jean-Eric Vergne a imploré Red Bull de bien vouloir lui donner une seconde chance et de le conserver pour la saison 2015 chez Toro Rosso.

Back in 2005 drivers had to do qualifying (split between two sessions of three laps each – one out, one flying, one in) and the race so definitely not. In the Pirelli era however, Jenson Button managed 52 laps on the soft tyre at this years Monaco Grand Prix, Nico Hulkenberg managed 51 laps on the super-soft. Jean-Eric Vergne m ...
