Bottas Will Remain With Sauber Till The Advent Of Audi F1

Bottas Will Remain With Sauber Till The Advent Of Audi F1

November 7, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Audi formally announced its intention to team up with Sauber as its power unit manufacturer in 2026, when a new engine formula will go into effect, during the Belgian Grand Prix in August.

As Audi becomes a shareholder in the Swiss team, it is anticipated that its engagement would progressively increase once Alfa Romeo’s sponsorship agreement with the Hinwil team expires at the end of 2023.

Driving for an actual works team once more appeals to current Alfa Romeo driver Bottas, who joined the privateer after five years with Mercedes.

When asked in Mexico if he intended to remain with Sauber when Audi joined the team in 2026, Bottas responded: “why not I’m hoping to go because I’m 33 years old.” According to Bottas, the team’s motivation will be maintained in the upcoming seasons by Audi’s participation.

“Yes, I would say, as I believe it to be quite significant in the overall scheme of things. Sauber has a lot of potential with Audi.

“They certainly want to be successful in the future. They desire to do well and come out as earnest.

“Therefore, I believe that participating in that initiative would be quite intriguing for any driver on the grid, especially for me since I am currently a member of Sauber. I really believe that it is feasible.”

Bottas said Alfa Romeo requires “a lot of effort” to be competitive, but he believes more support from Audi before the team’s official 2026 entrance would enable it to catch up to the leaders.

“There is undoubtedly more work to be done. This is a fact. However, given that the necessary facilities are nearby, “The Finn made a mention.

“Some buildings and equipment are more comparable to championship-winning teams. And the team still has fewer members than, at the very least, what I observed last year.

But I don’t see why it couldn’t be done with the help of a company like Audi.

“I believe [the timetable] hinges on how much Audi will help this team before they formally enter as a manufacturer,” the author said.

Obviously, nothing will change in the upcoming year. Alfa Romeo is still our partner. Naturally, we also aspire to have a better vehicle next year than we had this one.

But beyond then, I believe it depends on the level of support after 2024.

If [Audi] are eager to help, if they’re genuinely making a big effort to help, and if the power unit is excellent for 2026, which is now hard to forecast, then why not.

Daniel Ricciardo’s F1 Career Is Forever Altered By McLaren’s Choice

Daniel Ricciardo’s F1 Career Is Forever Altered By McLaren’s Choice

August 6, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Motorsport claims that McLaren has chosen to terminate Ricciardo’s contract early.

Oscar Piastri will replace Daniel Ricciardo at McLaren a year early, according speculations covered by Motorsport. The British team is said to have officially informed the Australian driver of its plan to terminate Ricciardo’s contract early.

Contrary to what Alpine reports, Piastri would join McLaren as a reserve driver in 2023. However, the Woking team would be prepared to elevate him straight away if a termination deal could be achieved with Ricciardo.

The Australian, who like with Lando Norris struggled to shine at McLaren, will aim to negotiate a sizable severance compensation. His objective is to continue competing in Formula One the next season, most likely at Alpine himself to fill Fernando Alonso’s vacant seat or at Haas.

To create room for Piastri, McLaren plans to cancel Ricciardo’s 2023 Formula One contract.
According to Motorsport.com, the McLaren Formula 1 team has formally informed Daniel Ricciardo that Oscar Piastri will take his spot in the lineup for the upcoming season.

If a plan for Ricciardo’s early retirement is ultimately decided, McLaren is thought to have first signed Piastri on a reserve driver agreement for 2023, one that it hopes to upgrade to a racing seat.

As part of the initial three-year contract that he signed in early 2020, while still at Renault, Ricciardo has a fixed contract with McLaren for the next season.

In order for Ricciardo to leave the team at the conclusion of this season, he and the organisation will now need to reach an agreement on a settlement containing a hefty pay-off.

He is believed to be determined to find another seat in Formula One and has no interest in going sideways into the team’s Formula E program.

However, when McLaren expressed interest and it became clear that Piastri may be a free agent in 2023 after all, discussions stepped up and the Working team was viewed as an improvement over Williams.

Meanwhile, Ricciardo is undoubtedly towards the top of the list of potential Fernando Alonso replacements at Alpine, despite the fact that his decision to leave Renault for McLaren angered the company’s top management.

Although Ferrari technically has a claim on anyone fills the seat, Haas might potentially be a viable choice if Mick Schumacher decides to go as anticipated.

Sometimes the driver in question obtaining a seat elsewhere might have an influence on pay-off agreements like the one Ricciardo is expected to earn. Kimi Raikkonen spent two years away from Formula One after Ferrari fired him at the end of 2009, in part so he could keep the entire sum.

However, it is acknowledged that, given the funds necessary to fulfil Ricciardo’s initial contract, it is possible that, even if he secures a drive elsewhere, McLaren will continue to pay him to not compete for the team in 2023.

George Russell Joins Mercedes F1 From 2022

George Russell Joins Mercedes F1 From 2022

September 7, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News F1

George Russell has been announced as Lewis Hamilton’s 2022 teammate after signing a long-term contract with Mercedes. Russell, 23, has been a Mercedes junior driver since 2017 and gets his opportunity after three seasons in Formula One with Williams.

Russell stated, “It’s a momentous day for me personally and professionally, but it’s also a day of mixed feelings.” “I’m both delighted and honored to be joining Mercedes next year, which is a major professional step for me, but it also means saying goodbye to my Williams teammates and friends. It’s been a privilege to work with each and every member of the team, as well as to represent the Williams name in Formula One.

“I’d be lying if I claimed I wasn’t ecstatic about the prospect of next season. It’s a tremendous chance that I want to seize with both hands. But I have no illusions about the magnitude of the task; it will be a steep learning curve.

Valtteri has established a high bar for himself, regularly producing victories, pole positions, and contributing to many championship triumphs. My goal must be to repay Toto [Wolff, Squad Principal], the team, and the board’s faith in me by ensuring that I contribute to the team’s continued success, and I want to make my new teammates proud.

Russell, who also paid respect to Williams, said, “It’s a big chance that I want to seize with both hands.” “However, I have no illusions about the magnitude of the task; it will be a steep learning curve.”

Mercedes evaluated the known quantity of Bottas – who has battled but failed to defeat seven-time champion Hamilton over the course of a season – against their emerging F1 prodigy, Russell.

In the end, they chose the man who, in addition to blazing down the grid at Williams, excelled in his one-off outing in the Mercedes last December in Bahrain when standing in for Hamilton.
