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?
