McLaren junior racer Stoffel Vandoorne has been given a five-place grid penalty for this weekend’s Formula Renault 3.5 race in Monaco for crashing under yellow flags in free practice. Vandoorne topped the session – his first around the streets of the Principality – but he was involved in an accident that brought the red flags out with two minutes to go

Sebastian Vettel insists that Red Bull is not alone in being unhappy about Pirelli’s tyres, and thinks it unfair his team are being singled-out as whiners. Rivals have criticised Red Bull’s outspoken views on the impact of more aggressive tyres this year, even though it is leading the constructors’ championship and Vettel is on top of the drivers’ standings. The team’s stance was further questioned after the Spanish Grand Prix when owner Dietrich Mateschitz suggested F1 was no longer ‘racing’ because Vettel stopped four times – even though he adopted a similar tactic to win the race in 2011.

Lotus believes that unlocking a better understanding of Pirelli’s medium compound tyre is key to helping Kimi Raikkonen deliver the grid positions he needs to win more races and maintain his title shot.

In a year when rivalry between team-mates has hit new heights – following issues at Red Bull in Malaysia and Force India in Australia and China – it was McLaren’s turn in Bahrain to find itself trying to deal with a frenetic fight between its two drivers. As Jenson Button and Sergio Perez battled furiously with each other – banging wheels and making contact with each other – the team knew it was in a difficult situation in wondering whether it needed to intervene. While emotions ran high on Sunday, both in terms of radio communication and post-race television interviews, the situation calmed down in the hours after the race.

Paul Hembery: “It was fantastic to see such brilliantly close racing all the way down the field, from the start to the finish of the grand prix. To some extent this was down to the fact that there was only a small performance gap between the two compounds, meaning that we saw lots of different thinking on strategy. On this occasion, there was no clear advantage in starting on particular compound when it came to overall race time.

Lewis Hamilton – 5th: “I’m really happy with our result today. It’s been a tough weekend for us but we got through it and finishing in fifth place was some good damage limitation. My race didn’t start well at all

Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali believes the team is in control of its own world championship destiny this year having proved the pace of its car with victory in the Chinese Grand Prix. Last season, Fernando Alonso was able to open up a 40-point lead in the drivers’ standings before the August break through consistent scoring as other teams’ performances fluctuated.

Paul Hembery: “Strategy played a key role in today’s race, with the medium tyre proving particularly effective at the beginning of the grand prix on full fuel. This initially rewarded the drivers who started on the medium tyre, and also meant that those who started on the soft tyre completed a short first stint in order to move onto the medium as quickly as possible. “As a result we saw plenty of overtaking, with many of the strategies reliant on the drivers passing as many cars as possible to gain track position before their next stops.
April 13th, 2013
Paul Hembery, motorsport director: “It’s clear that tyre strategy is going to play a key role tomorrow and we saw that in qualifying today. With a difference of around 1.5 seconds between the medium and the soft tyre, qualifying on the softer compound was the natural choice in terms of outright time. However, the soft tyre delivers its best in qualifying over just one lap – a little bit like a qualifying tyre – which is why the drivers left it until late in many of the sessions to go out and set a time

Mercedes will have no hesitation in imposing team orders on its drivers again if it is in the outfit’s best interests, despite suggestions it had abandoned the policy after the controversial Malaysian Grand Prix . Niki Lauda, the outfit’s non-executive chairman, said several times in China that Mercedes would not use team orders anymore after Nico Rosberg was left unhappy at being told to hold position behind Lewis Hamilton at Sepang.

World Rally Championship leader Sebastien Ogier has admitted he feared he would not make the start of this week’s Rally of Portugal due to illness. Ogier is still recovering from the flu and says he expects his performance on the event to be impacted by his condition.

McLaren admits it is under pressure to provide a car that Jenson Button and Sergio Perez both merit. Amid a difficult start to its 2013 Formula 1 campaign, in which it has dropped away from the front, the team says both drivers’ attitudes have been exemplary. It insists however that the real pressure of performing to expectations will only kick in for Button and Perez once they have proven frontrunning machinery once again.
April 5th, 2013
Lotus boss Eric Boullier says he would not impose team orders so early in a Formula 1 season, following the controversy over Red Bull’s ‘multi 21′ team spat in the Malaysian Grand Prix. Sebastian Vettel battled past Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber at Sepang despite the squad requesting that they hold position to the finish.

Ross Brawn believes that instructing his drivers to hold position in the closing stages of the Malaysian Grand Prix was a no-brainer because both Mercedes cars were marginal on fuel. Although Nico Rosberg was frustrated at being ordered to hold position behind Lewis Hamilton at the end, Brawn says that calling off the race was totally the right thing for the Brackley-based outfit to do. He has revealed that team data shows that although Rosberg felt he had the pace to threaten the Red Bulls if he had been allowed to overtake Hamilton, his fuel situation meant he had no realistic chance of doing so.

March 19th, 2013
McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh has praised his drivers for the attitude they are taking to the outfit’s 2013 troubles.

Although the team’s form is well adrift of what it had hoped and expected for this year, Whitmarsh says that his two drivers have impressed him in the way they are dealing with its plight.
