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."

Making F1 Cars Harder to Drive Just Another Artificial Trick

Oct 1 2014 11:09am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

For someone who hasn't even made his grand prix debut yet, Max Verstappen is causing quite the stir in Formula One. The announcement in August that the 16-year-old Dutchman would replace Jean-Eric Vergne at the Toro Rosso team for the 2015 season was more significant than your average driver announcement—it was a tipping point. The notion that someone could almost instantly swap their school uniform for a set of fireproof overalls to compete in the h ...

Power Ranking the Formula 1 Teams After 2014 Singapore Grand Prix

Sep 29 2014 7:45am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

With only 0.569 seconds covering the first nine cars in qualifying, the 2014 Formula One field was closer than ever before at the Singapore Grand Prix. Mercedes remained at the front, but their advantage over the rest of the field appeared somewhat diminished. Red Bull led the chasing pack—and both their drivers led the race—as they out-scored the Silver Arrows for only the third time this season. Also close behind were Ferrari. Fe ...

Singapore Grand Prix: Who Gained and Lost from Their Safety Car Pit Strategy?

Sep 24 2014 8:23am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It was inevitable. Each of the first six Singapore grands prix featured at least one safety car period. The seventh, last Sunday, was no exception. When a safety car is deployed in Formula One, there is usually a rush to the pits, as a stop while travelling at the reduced speed of the safety car does not cost nearly as much time as it would at race speed. However, what if you have just made a stop ...

Loin de déshumaniser la course, la sophistication galopante des monoplaces a renforcé la coopération entre celui qui tient le volant et celui qui est chargé de l’exploitation du châssis. Entre le pilote et son moniteur de vitesse, les liens sont étroits. Lors d’un week-end de Grand Prix, où les décisions s’enchaînent à toute vitesse, ingénieur et pilote prennent des risques et peuvent se tromper. Mais ils doivent avoir une confiance ...
