Testing time awaits Lewis Hamilton — Formula One

Testing time awaits Lewis Hamilton — Formula One

But Niki Lauda, the Mercedes team chairman, thinks Ferrari simply made a fundamental setup mistake at Monza.

Maintaining his focus after a 2 1/2-hour rain delay at the Italian Grand Prix and in difficult, wet conditions on Saturday, Hamilton finished more than a second ahead of Max Verstappen of Red Bull.

"In the old days, before we had a set number of engines per driver, you could use one engine per race and that cost a lot of money", said Force India's chief operating officer Otmar Szafnauer.

The three-time world champion demonstrated his strength at Monza, which is considered to be Ferrari's playground and Vettel is now widely regarded as the only driver that stands in his way to victory. "After my off something was wrong with the car", he said after the race.

"I offered to do it, so I'm looking forward to that - kind of". "I think we just screwed up", he told German broadcaster RTL.

"Then I made some progress and we got some good overtaking there".

"I think we are strong, we don't need to hide and there's plenty of positives", he summed up.

Hamilton led from pole position to top of the F1 driver's standings for the first time this season. However, the next race on the street circuit in Singapore is expected to suit Ferrari's extra downforce. I respect it and I appreciate it.

The two parties first joined forces over 40 years ago, and the tobacco company has been the Italian outfit's title sponsor since 1997. As opposed to messing around with the grid.

A team statement from Ferrari read: 'Ferrari announces that Scuderia Ferrari has renewed its multi-year partnership with Philip Morris International. But on paper at least, the power circuits of Sepang, Suzuka, Abu Dhabi and Austin lean toward Mercedes.

As a result, Liberty has fielded an influx of submissions from potential new hosts such as Copenhagen, New York City, Las Vegas and Long Beach.

"The support has been amazing and, despite the numbers, the gap, you can name the negatives but I'm very, very positive right now, to be honest".

While Vietnam's motorsport history is sparse, Argentina has previously hosted 21 Grands Prix. I'm sure they are developing their car, we are developing ours, so I'm not so fussed about what they doing.

"Things on paper do not interest me", Vettel insisted. "The pace was good and I enjoyed it. It was the perfect result for us as a team".

The investigation centres on a Concorde Implementation Agreement (CIA), settled upon in 2013, whereby the FIA - motorsport's global governing body - would receive a one-off lump sum payment from the Formula One Group. In short, the more difficult it is, the more fun it is. In April, SFO director David Green promised to conduct a "thorough examination" into allegations of bribery.

The triple world champion openly admits to disliking track testing, and often pulls out of scheduled sessions with injury or illness. "It would be a shame to see this championship decided on grid penalties". "There is not an interpretation possible there".
