McLaren finished P5 and P6 in France which was a positive result as it not only helped them leapfrog Ferrari in the championship to climb to third place, but it was also the first time this year that both their drivers finished in strong positions close to each other. This also meant that the two had to race each other for position during the race and Lando Norris wasn’t too happy about Ricciardo’s strong defense and he has now expressed his displeasure as quoted by Motorsport

Lando Norris Critical Of Daniel Ricciardo
Ricciardo had gotten the jump on Norris at the race start. Norris then tried to get past Daniel on the second lap. However, Ricciardo defended and Norris had to go off the track.
Norris began by speaking about this incident
“It was aggressive defense. I have nothing against Daniel, but I don't think he should have done that”
He then accepted that he probably would have also done the same thing in a similar position
“But well, that's racing. I probably would have done the same thing in his place”
He, however, also felt that this was one instance where Daniel should not have defended so aggressively and he explained why
“But I was on the edge of the track. If I had a normal escape area or something on my right side I wouldn't be complaining, but because of all the bumps and vibrations there I had to go straight on because he squeezed me”
He summed up his words by revealing what he plans to do about it
“It's not my intention to complain, but we'll definitely talk about it”
McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl has reiterated that “as long as [their drivers] are fighting for a position and there is no clear difference in strategy, [McLaren] let them race”
Onboard footage from the French GP had shown Haas’ Mick Schumacher inviting Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel to take a look at the former’s car
Mick has now revealed that “basically, [he has] been sitting in a crooked position since the beginning of the season just because the seat is too central”
He added that he and Vettel have “actually been talking about it before and so [he] took that opportunity to show to him”
He further joked that Vettel had given his “mum a tip of maybe breaking it so [he] would get a new one sooner but it didn’t happen in the end, so [he] still [has] the same seat for now”
He, however, explained that it “doesn’t harm [him] in any way while driving. It is something that for [them] is a secondary concern right now”
Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas has stated that “yes, [he] can be very direct on” suggestions that his outburst on the radio in France may have jeopardized his career at Mercedes
“That perception is completely false. [He has] a good relationship with the team and there’s no issues. And those kind of situations are normal” Bottas added
He reiterated that they “are not in a tea party; [they] are in an elite top sport. [He wants] to do well, [he wants] the team to do well”
The management of the Silverstone circuit have released a statement confirming that they “are delighted to confirm that the British Grand Prix 2021 has been included in the latest phase of the UK Government’s Event Research Programme”
This will allow them to host a “full capacity crowd for the event between 16th - 18th July”
Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton “can't tell how excited [he’s] to see people, and to see the British crowd, because it is the best crowd of the whole year”
However, he does “worry about people. [He reads] that the vaccinations is good, there's less people being in hospital. But [he doesn't] know. It feels a bit premature to [him]”
The FIA has clarified that “devices which are used to fit or remove wheel fasteners may only be powered by compressed air or nitrogen. Any sensor systems may only act passively”
A new technical directive from them has stated that “for safety reasons [they] would furthermore expect the minimum time offset between the initiation of the jack release procedure and the OK signal to the driver given by the green light to be at least 0.2 seconds”
Alfa Romeo’s F1 team will be sporting a modified livery this weekend celebrating their 111th anniversary as a car manufacturer
Aston Martin Team Principal Otmar Szafnauer has explained that “everybody at [Aston Martin] aims to win Grands Prix and World Championships”
Their “new and improved structure [that they] have created mirrors that of the most successful teams in Formula 1 today” he added
Are the fast pit stops seen in F1 today compromising safety?
