Hamilton and Scherzinger ‘over’
For those Hamilton fans that wants to see the Briton take another world championship… it may just happen now. Hamilton as we know him, is a very emotional person, often wearing his heart on his sleeve. His troubled relationship with Nicole Scherzinger appeared to affect him negatively in the past and although a heavy hearted Hamilton drove a superb race at Hungaroring.
Hamilton went as far as dedicating his win to his ex which she thought was “… was sweet of him“. During the summer break he then spent a few days in Los Angeles to try and work things out however this did not work and according to Scherzinger they “… are no longer together. It’s over“.
Will this provide the fire in Hamilton’s belly to drive him to more wins?
Lauda would have taken Raikkonen
Never one to miss an opportunity to share his opinion, Hollywood star Niki Lauda has said to Bild should he be Montezemolo he would take Raikkonen. “With Raikkonen the mechanics and engineers would have someone to look up to immediately. It could give the team a boost as it has done at Mercedes with Lewis Hamilton.”
Lauda warns that Alonso will not want Kimi as his team mate.”Alonso and Kimi as teammates will not be good.”
Did Lauda not also say for Kimi to go to Red Bull would be a disaster? Is he turning into a driver manager as well now?
Mateschitz rethinking Red Bull driver lineup?
Could we still see a shakeup in Red Bull’s 2014 driver lineup? Helmut Marko has been fighting to get Ricciardo in the vacant Red Bull seat and seem to have won the battle … or has he?
Bild today reports that Red Bull boss Mateschitz may be reconsidering what 2014 will hold for his team. At Spa it was expected that the team would announce their driver lineup for next year however this was put off as Mateschitz was on holiday.
While sipping on a Red Bull cocktail (or knocking back a couple of Jaeger Bombs) Mateschitz cast his thoughts onto his team and their chances of retaining the Constructors Championship, after all, this is where the money lies. Thinking of putting a relatively inexperienced driver beside his star driver and the pair going up against Hamilton/Rosberg at Mercedes and Alonso/Raikkonen at Ferrari (the latter yet to be confirmed) must have made him grab the bottle of Jägermeister for a good swig!
Anyway, Horner is still trying to get an experienced hand in beside Vettel while Marko is fighting for a young driver… who will win I hear you ask? We will have to wait for Ferrari to make their announcement first…
