Sport by Press Association 05/07/2018, 5:29 pm FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Send us a story Sign up to our Daily newsletter Lewis Hamilton has launched a staunch defence of his Mercedes team – but could not rule out further blunders costing him the title. Hamilton will head into his home race at Silverstone on Sunday one point behind Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel following a calamitous race for his team last time out in Austria. Mercedes’ chief strategist James Vowles is in the spotlight after his strategy blunder – the team’s third in nine races this season – and his very public apology to Hamilton over the team radio. Hamilton, who is bidding to become the first driver to win six British Grands Prix, and the first to win five in a row, insists it is not only his Mercedes team faltering this season, and backed his team to turn it around. But the 33-year-old Englishman also hinted that Mercedes can ill-afford further errors in his … [Read more...] about Lewis Hamilton staunchly defends Mercedes ahead of British Grand Prix
Haas F1 Team drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean finished 13th and 15th, respectively, in the 76th Monaco Grand Prix Sunday at Circuit de Monaco. The sixth round of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship at the historic track was bound to be a difficult affair for the Banbury squad after a disappointing qualifying performance on Saturday.Grosjean started 18th and Magnussen was 19th for a race where the outcome is often determined in qualifying.

Daniel Ricciardo produced a crushing qualifying performance to secure his first pole position in two years for tomorrow's Monaco Grand Prix. Ricciardo has been in imperious form all weekend and he saw off Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel with a record-breaking lap of the Monte Carlo street circuit. Championship leader Lewis Hamilton will line up in third after crucially splitting the Ferrari duo, with Kimi Raikkonen a place behind. Max Verstappen should have challenged his Red Bull team-mate for pole, but he failed to complete a single lap in qualifying after crashing out at the high-speed swimming pool section in final practice. The Dutchman's mechanics worked furiously to repair the damage on his Red Bull, but they failed to turn his car around in time, and he will start from last place. Verstappen's crash in the closing moments of running this morning marked his fifth big error in only six grands prix this season, and his fifth smash in four years in Monte Carlo. … [Read more...] about Dominant Daniel Ricciardo takes Monaco Grand Prix pole for Red Bull
