Fuming Anthony Joshua fires back at claims he will step aside for Tyson Fury to…

Anthony Joshua has angrily hit back at reports he is set to accept a staggering £15million pay-off to step aside and allow rival Tyson Fury to fight Oleksandr Usyk.

Despite that, organisers in the Middle East are desperate to stage a heavyweight unification bout between Fury and Usyk – as Sportsmail reported last week – and reports in the Telegraph had claimed that AJ was happy to step out of the way.

Joshua, though, has now angrily hit back and told his fans to stop listening to the ‘bulls***’ that is written about him, and to wait until he reveals the news himself.

Speaking on Instagram, he said:  ‘You know what’s bad about all these interviews I see? I see certain interviews that quote what I’ve said, and I think to myself: “I ain’t done no interviews? Where did this person get this information from?”

‘I’m hearing people saying, “AJ accepts £15m to step aside”. I ain’t signed no contract, I ain’t seen no contract. So as it stands, stop listening to the bulls*** until it comes from me.

‘I’m the man in control of my destiny, I’m the man who handles my business. I’m a smart individual and I make calculated decisions every step of the way. Don’t listen to the bulls*** from other sources, if I tell you something then you know it’s from me.’

Charles Leclerc’s anger with Ferrari while ‘Checo’ Pérez escaped him: “Stop talking to me

Charles Leclerc did not finish the race in Singapore in the best way. He started from pole and ‘Checo’ Pérez passed him at the start. After the safety car caused by Yuki Tsunoda, the Ferrari driver was very close to the Mexican, but could not overtake him on a circuit where it is difficult to do so. After several laps of pursuit, the Monegasque ended up moving away from Pérez, which caused a radio situation that caused him anger.

It was known that the Red Bull would be investigated after the race for not respecting the distance with the safety car. Faced with a possible five-second penalty, the team asked him to push:

“The distance with Pérez is 2.4 seconds. We need to be five seconds behind Pérez.” But Red Bull warned its driver to increase the pace and thus ensure victory in case of a penalty. When Ferrari notified Leclerc of this, the Monegasque replied to his engineer with a forceful “stop talking to me”.

Finally, the FIA ​​did penalize Pérez with five seconds and a reprimand, but the Mexican lengthened the distance with Leclerc by more than seven seconds, so he still won the race.

Fresh reports indicate Red Bull and Max Verstappen won’t be…

New reports have come to light that Red Bull may have committed a minor breach of the financial regulations last year, rather than a material one.

Formula 1’s first budget cap was introduced last year, and it stood at $145 million for the teams to spend on their cars.

There are three categories of breach of the financial regulations, one of which being procedural, whereby a team may fail to submit paperwork, or submits It late.

Williams were fined for this by the FIA earlier on in 2022, and reports came to light last week suggesting that Aston Martin and Red Bull might have overspent last year.

Overspending is split into two more categories – minor and material – and there were suggestions that the Austrian side may have gone over by as much as $10 million.

This would constitute a material breach, as the threshold is five percent, and such a contravention would leave them at risk of one of the harsher penalties.

Among those punishments is an exclusion from the world championship in question which, in this instance, is that of last year.

There was speculation during last weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix weekend that Max Verstappen was in danger of losing his world title to Sir Lewis Hamilton.

However, a report from Sportsmail now suggests that the Milton Keynes-based outfit did go over the limit, but not my more than five percent.

Red Bull boss, Christian Horner, was outraged by the accusations being aimed at his team, mainly by Ferrari and Mercedes, and he is thought to be considering legal action against what he feels are “defamatory” comments.

Red Bull insist that they did everything by the book.

Certificates of compliance will be handed out on Wednesday, at which point we will know who stayed within the budget cap in 2021.

Carlos Sainz aims subtle dig at those who ‘didn’t want him’ challenging Charles Leclerc

Carlos Sainz has aimed a subtle dig at doubters who criticised him for fighting Charles Leclerc at Ferrari. Sainz said there was a section of fans who “didn’t want him” fighting Leclerc after finding form in the middle of the campaign.

The Spaniard struggled over the opening races, crashing out of the Australia and Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. But, he turned things around in the middle of the campaign with P2 finishes in Monaco and Canada.

He also secured his first career win at an action-packed British Grand Prix at Silverstone. However, Sainz stresses it was “frustrating” to be moaned at despite giving his best in the opening part of the season and then criticised again when things went well.

He said: “I can understand that after the first few races, Charles (Leclerc) was clearly one step ahead in both qualifying and race pace. But in the middle of the season, I improved a lot. Yeah, I started getting into the fight more and it was kind of frustrating in a way, because when I got into the fight it seemed like some people didn’t want me there.

“I was criticised for not being there, and when I started being there, some wondered what I was doing up front, letting Charles win everything. It was frustrating, especially from the press. They criticise me, but just when I was there, fighting, they don’t want me in front of me anymore.

“You saw that I do not pay much attention to what is said out there.” Questions have been asked all season whether Ferrari would implement team orders to help Leclerc’s title bid.

Ferrari has never intervened in the pair’s on-track battle but this has led to Leclerc dropping some points. The Scuderia’s decision not to get involved ultimately cost Leclerc a potential race win at Silverstone.
