Red Bull's Ricciardo shines in practice

Organisers investigate 'bribery' claim

Organisers investigate 'bribery' claim

One person Ricciardo may be able to tempt in trying the 'shoey' is his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen, with the smiling Aussie claiming they have well and truly patched up their differences after clashing at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Sportsmail has learned that the French manufacturers have concluded that their fractious relationship with the Red Bull team has run its course, and will no longer supply them with engines from 2019. "I think we've got to keep that going to Abu Dhabi and then make another step across the (northern) winter to start strong for 2018".

But if Renault, Ferrari and Mercedes all turn their backs on Red Bull, what other options are there?

But, when the Frenchman began to put the pressure on him late in the year, Senna responded at the Portugal Grand Prix by squeezing Prost towards the pit wall.

But now Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner says that someone else is interested in supplying them with engines-a manufacturer they already have ties with who should be obvious, which clearly hints that it's Aston Martin.

The Singapore street circuit is believed to best suit Ferrari as Sebastian Vettel aims to reclaim the championship lead from Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton.

Talk of Dietrich Mateschitz, the team's current owner, walking away from F1 is nothing new however, and the next test of the Austrian's magnate commitment is likely to come when the first draft of the sport's anticipated overhaul is presented.

He has arrived this year after six podiums in the last nine races. It seeks to provide the freedom of space for the drivers to showcase their personalities and real life chemistry, by going out of the box and stepping out of comfort zones when carrying out content marketing, especially on social media. It has also contributed S$1.4bn in tourism receipts to Singapore over the past decade and drawn over 450,000 international visitors, including projected arrivals for this year's race.

The pair were back to laughing - and attempting to eat durians - together in Singapore, but the 28-year-old acknowledged that the relationship between F1 team-mates is balanced on a knife-edge. The current F1 regulations will end its cycle in 2020.

"We fortunately cleared the air then and there".

Force India decided to implement team orders after the race, with chief operating officer Otmar Szafnauer saying "if they can't sort themselves out then we'll have to do it for them".
