Daniil Kvyat can still return to Formula 1, even if he has to miss the whole year. This is the opinion of the pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo.Daniel ricciardo "I think if Daniel will miss the season, then it'll make him stronger.He's naturally very talented, what I've learned, when we were teammates. He was often very fast.He's still very young and I think he has a chance to prove himself in Formula 1. He just needs to reboot.In this regard, I am sure that leaving Red Bull would make him stronger.
The Williams driver lance Stroll has stated that next year he needs a partner who would work for the team.Lance Stroll "I just need a team player. You still work for yourself, in their boxes, with their engineers, but, of course, always good to have a good relationship with a partner.You never want to fight each other so much that the team was split into two parts. You want someone to push you forward all the time, so the partner was competitive, played at a high level so you can become the best pilot.But it all comes down to the fact that only Williams decides what to do. I'll agree with any decision".A place in Williams expect Robert Kubica, Sergey Sirotkin, Daniel and Paul di Resta.
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo said that he respects the achievement of Lewis Hamilton last season.Daniel ricciardo "Last season was in the hands of Lewis - I respect this achievement. He had a great car, but I think the car SEB was just as good, and Lewis just kept himself in better shape, not paying attention to provocations on the track and outside it. He showed the best level of consistency and composure. You have to respect that.He was always very quick and I think he had a great season.
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo said that he was not going to talk about the contract in the next couple of months.Daniel ricciardo "I very much doubt that in the coming months that will decide. First, I want to know more about who will get the best car in 2019. I'm not going to pretend that I'm smarter than everyone else and have all the opportunities at their disposal, but I just think I have enough time for reflection.The most important thing next year is to remain at a high level to interest in me also remained high.Any contract I sign will not be an annual. Perhaps this will get me at the peak of my career, so I want to make the most of this opportunity. There is no need to hurry".

Next year the Formula 1 cars just because of the Halo system will be heavier than 14 kg, but fans of the championship are more concerned about the appearance of cars, because all pilots, without exception, believe that aesthetics are markedly affected.The FIA has decided to help the teams to solve this problem, allowing to play with an external view of the upper part of Halo. So Haas has already tested the new system with serrated edges. Maybe it wouldn't look so bad.Daniel ricciardo, Red Bull's driver "I don't think the Halo effect will be as dramatic as it is now spoken by most people. Everything should be fine".

Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo in the qualification of Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi finished with the fourth result.Daniel ricciardo "the Settings were OK but I had to constantly communicate with the team on the subject of why the machine is so slow on the highway. According to our data, we had to be much faster.I was able to overtake one of the pilot Ferrari, and it can already be considered a great achievement as the start from the second row. This is a good chance to show good results, if only our race pace will be high enough".
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Ricardo showed in the practice of the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi the third result.Daniel ricciardo "a Good Friday. This morning we watched the lap time, as he worked exclusively with new products for next year. Yes, next week will be a test, but it was important now to check something. With a low amount of fuel on Board we were quick, but I think that with a full load we will be very fast, at least in this direction still needs to be done.The complexity is in the work with rubber. In some turns, just not enough grip, but we're happy with our pace. He clearly looks promising. If we find a little more speed, it can achieve good results".
Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas has admitted that he needs to again prove that he deserves a place in the team which is.Finn had a strong start in 2017 after replacing Nico Rosberg, but in the second half of the season, his pace dropped.Valtteri Bottas "the Season was difficult. I was definitely hoping for more, but I'm glad I proved to myself and the team that we deserve a place for next year. I could not beat Hamilton this year, but I'm working on my weaknesses.Next year everything will start from scratch. I will need to re-prove whether I am worthy of a new contract. I have not had a lot of problems with the pressure because I felt that the whole team was on my side".The contract with Botas was extended through 2018. At the end of next year, Mercedes will have a choice between him, Daniel ricciardo and Esteban the Window.
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo admitted that he is looking forward to the final race of the season-2017.Daniel ricciardo "Yas Marina circuit is a bit similar to Suzuka. This track, which I always enjoyed where I like everything, except that I never made the podium. At Suzuka this year I was able to achieve a long-awaited podium, I hope that there will correct the situation.This is a fun track for aerobatics, I like twilight, and I think it creates a special atmosphere of the season finale.We train in daylight, but the race at dusk, making our work quite difficult. The work day does not give us anything since the evening and night before the track cools down, and the machine requires completely different settings".On account of Riccardo six races in Abu Dhabi. Best result 4th place in 2014 after starting from 20th position.
Red Bull ready to extend the contract with Daniel Riccardo until the end of 2020, but the Australian is in no hurry to put his signature.Daniel ricciardo "It's very nice that the team wants to keep me in the team. I have great respect for Red Bull, but I still have time to perform all the options.About Ferrari, I heard that, but I can't say anything about this, because to me, no one spoke. My dream is to win the world championship in the best car, so I don't know what else to say. I'm not sure Vettel would want to see me with his partner.Recall that Vettel and ricciardo were team-mates at Red Bull in 2014, and then Daniel won three races, while Sebastian, with the rank of the current champion has never stood on the top step of the podium.
As you know, the Red Bull team has extended the contract with max Verstappen until the end of 2020. Now the Austrians want the same term to extend the agreement with Daniel Riccardo.Christian Horner, head of the team Red Bull "We really wanted and we extended the contract with Verstappen until 2020. Now we want to do the same with ricciardo. His contract ends at the end of next year, but after the upcoming Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi we are ready to discuss with him the details of the new agreement. We want to keep our pair of pilots for the next three years.
Williams technical Director Paddy Lowe said that the decision on the composition of the pilots will not be accepted in the near future.Paddy Lowe "We are unlikely to make a decision in a short time. We have a few different options and we will notify you of its decision when it is taken.A lot depends on your personal rate of applicants, so we need time to evaluate their love".A place in Williams expect Robert Kubica, Paul di Resta, Pascal Wehrlein and Daniel Quat.
Not so long ago in the Red Bull said that they are ready to build the team around max Verstappen. But the Dutch opposed the separation of the first and second pilots.Max Verstappen "we Have both sides of the boxes receive the same equipment and it works the same way. I don't want to be the first pilot, I want to beat his teammate on the same machine - the only thing that will bring me satisfaction."This year, Verstappen has won two races, Daniel ricciardo - the only one. However, on points, the Australian is ahead of his young partner Red Bull.
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo during the launch became a member of the incident and took a step back. But the Australian managed to get to sixth position.Daniel ricciardo "the Start was very difficult. In the first turn I decided to walk on the left side of the track, because that is how I was able to achieve a maximum break, but someone suddenly bumped into me. The car was damaged, and had to go to the pits. Fortunately, the safety car helped to catch up with the peloton and start a breakthrough.It was a difficult breakthrough, I fought as best I could. The last 15 laps were difficult because of the tires. Problem started unexpectedly. Max even had to call in for an additional pit stop. We are always working to the limit, and so will run to the checkered flag in Abu Dhabi. I think that everything should be fine".
The pilot of McLaren Fernando Alonso in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix showed the seventh result, which after the fine Daniel Riccardo will become the sixth starting position.Fernando Alonso "Today, I'm happy with the 7th position, especially because the fight was difficult. The conditions were very difficult you see the rain drops on the helmet visor, and it's a little comforting. Even when wet asphalt, we need to trust what your machine is doing. Your mind is in this car can't help you.Yesterday we were not happy with its balance and performance, but today the machine is activated and we become more competitive. The sixth position is a fantastic starting position to fight for points. But we know that Hamilton and ricciardo will break up the tail of the peloton. I will try to defend as long as you can. It doesn't rain tomorrow, but if it was, something to fight for points it would be much easier".
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix showed the 5-th result, but will lose ten positions for the replacement of elements of the power plant.Riccardo Daniel "What a weird Saturday. Usually we played poorly on Friday, but worked fine in qualifying, but this time it was different. Yes, and the last set of tires in the third round caused a vibration of the car. I just could not work to the extreme.I hope that tomorrow we will be able to start on the tyres that will not behave this way. I think in the race we will have a good car. If I catch up with Lewis, that he can encourage me to fight for higher positions. Go together".
In the team Williams Felipe Massa drove a qualifying score with their partner and 172. The most equal fight to Sauber, where Pascal Wehrlein is leading with a score 107.Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas 13-6Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel - Kimi Raikkonen 14-5Red Bull, Daniel Riccardo - Max Verstappen 6-13Force India, Sergio Perez - Esteban Windows 12-7Williams, Felipe Massa - lance Stroll 17-2McLaren, Fernando Alonso - Stoffel Vandorn 15-3Toro Rosso, Pierre went Out - Brendon Hartley 0-2Renault, Nico - Carlos Sainz 2-1Haas, Roman Grosjean, Kevin Magnussen 12-7Sauber, Marcus Ericsson - Pascal Wehrlein 7-10.
Toro Rosso may miss the stage in Abu Dhabi. The team may not be enough spare parts to prepare two cars for the final race of the season.According to Auto Motor und Sport, powerplant on machines Toro Rosso recently broke down so often that it has ended the stock of items prepared by the specialists of Renault until the end of the season. In the end we have to transfer parts from one machine to another, especially for turbine modules and MGU-H. Helmut Marko, a sports consultant to Red Bull even made a joke on this subject "Now Toro Rosso resemble a store of spare parts for used cars".Jokes aside, the Renault has already admitted that will not have time to prepare a new power plant to Abu Dhabi.Cyril abiteboul, head of Renault Sport "Preparation of these items requires a lot of time. Two weeks is not enough".In the senior Red Bull team also problems begin. So, on the car of Daniel ricciardo set the turbine that was previously used factory team Renault.Meanwhile, experts note that the problems the Toro Rosso with engines related to the fact that they ignore the demands of the engineers of Renault. I wonder how they will work next year with the Honda DIY.
Daniel ricciardo in the practice of the Brazilian Grand Prix showed the 3rd result. After qualifying Red Bull racing pilots will be fined in the form of loss of ten positions.Riccardo Daniel "I am very pleased with this Friday. We looked competitive. Long runs look promising, but Mercedes are the clear favorites. We can still improve tomorrow, but the opponents are not standing still.We don't need to change much settings and so good. I think we are going to compete with Ferrari than with the Germans. If it would rain, it could change the picture, and in the root. If I can get pole position, it is slightly easier on yourself, because of the penalty I will have to start from the depths of the peloton".
Even before the start of the race weekend on the car of Pierre went Out and was replaced module MGU-H, with the result that the pilot Toro Rosso was fined in the form of loss of ten starting positions. But during the first practice, new challenges have arisen.Had to replace other elements of the power plant, and now the Frenchman will be punished in the loss of 25 positions at the start.Earlier, on 10 positions received partner at Toro Rosso Brendon Hartley and Daniel ricciardo of Red Bull. All three use the Renault engines. Surprisingly, McLaren-Honda is pursuing the weekend without penalty.
In the FIA have confirmed the fines for the replacement of elements of the power plant on three machines Daniel ricciardo of Red Bull, Pierre went Out and Brandon Hartley from Toro Rosso.All three were eighth modules MGU-H. as a result, each of them will receive ten penalty positions.
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo admitted that the team is exploring the possibility of replacing some elements of the power plant. Of course, in this case, the Aussie will lose a few positions at the start of the Brazilian race.Riccardo Daniel "is Likely to be fine. If we don't go for it, then just don't finish the race. The penalty will be small - about 10 positions."In Mexico, Ricardo also received a fine after which he managed to get into the top ten, but came down due to equipment failure.
