Sebastian Vettel fires parting warning to Max Verstappen

Vettel has endured a difficult season at Aston Martin, only sitting above Williams in the constructors’ standings. But the four-time F1 world champion will walkway from the sport as a legend and has suggested it might not be all doom and gloom for the team for much longer.

In his retirement statement, Vettel claimed that it was ‘clear’ that Aston Martin are laying the foundations to race at the very top level in the future. He wrote: “I have had the privilege of working with many fantastic people in Formula One over the past 15 years – there are far too many to mention and thank.

“Over the past two years, I have been an Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team driver – and, although our results have not been as good as we had hoped, it is very clear to me that everything is being put together that a team needs to race at the very highest level for years to come.”

Vettel also added that he hoped his efforts since joining Aston Martin would contribute to their success in the coming years. He insisted he’d continue to provide his expertise until he departs and cited his family as partly the reason for his retirement decision.

“I have really enjoyed working with such a great bunch of people,” Vettel continued. “Everyone – Lawrence, Lance, Martin, Mike, the senior managers, the engineers, the mechanics and the rest of the team – is ambitious, capable, expert, committed and friendly, and I wish them all well.

“I hope that the work I did last year and am continuing to do this year will be helpful in the development of a team that will win in the future, and I will work as hard as I can between now and the end of the year with that goal in mind, giving as always my best in the last 10 races.

“The decision to retire has been a difficult one for me to take, and I have spent a lot of time thinking about it; at the end of the year, I want to take some more time to reflect on what I will focus on next; it is very clear to me that, being a father, I want to spend more time with my family. But today is not about saying goodbye.

“Rather, it is about saying thank you – to everyone – not least to the fans, without whose passionate support Formula One could not exist.”

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.
