In the round-up: Daniel Ricciardo says he needs to take a leaf out of Romain Grosjean’s book.
Top F1 links from the past 24 hours:
“My Achilles heel is that this year, in the first part of the season, I wasn’t aggressive enough in the races. In some aspects I was the opposite of [Romain] Grosjean. Now, however, I think I’ve found the right balance in showing my capabilities.”
The inclusion of Ricciardo on this list is rather odd but it’s good to see Jimmy Vasser get a mention (via Alex Zanardi).
Comment of the day
Can F1 survive without Bernie Ecclestone? @Joao-Pedro-CQ isn’t sure:
When Ecclestone drops down, because he eventually will someday, I truly believe Formula One will make a mess out of it self. Bernie is the glue that keeps teams, FIA and FOM together, and the one who makes the relation work. When he goes, it will be hard to have stability. At least, that?óÔé¼Ôäós what I think.
