Charlie’s Chatter

  • The FIA has announced there will be no additional punishment for Vettel as a result of his on track incident with Hamilton. I guess Vettel and Hamilton are going to have to settle this on the track.
  • We have a little Canadian vs. Canadian feud this week.¬†Former world champion Jacques Villeneuve says it is not fair that F1 rookie Lance Stroll is getting extra practice sessions during the season “thanks to his money”. I guess Villeneuve is sorrey he is not sorrey.
  • Red Bull Racing will get a fuel upgrade for the British Grand Prix with the aim of improving the performance of their Renault power unit.
  • Will this be the final year for the British Grand Prix? Organizers have threatened to pull the race due to high costs. Sounds like a good ol’ fashion game of chicken with the FIA.
  • Joke of the week…McLaren are optimistic of being more competitive this weekend with Honda planning to race their upgraded engine at the Austrian GP.
  • Denmark is looking at joining the F1 calendar in 2020 and businessman Lars Seier Christensen met with Liberty Media in what he described as a “very positive meeting”.
  • Sounds like Vettel isn’t thrilled by the prospect of Alonso as a teammate.¬†“I’m not responsible for signing the drivers but if l had a say l would prefer Kimi.”
  • Carlos Sainz says it is “unlikely” he will continue to drive for Toro Rosso in 2018 – but how likely is it that he will achieve his goal of landing a seat at Red Bull next season?
