Perez too ‘involved’ with Racing Point to consider McLaren switch

When it came to deciding last year for which team he would be driving this season, Sergio Perez felt that Racing Point simply had more to offer than McLaren. Last summer, during the turmoil surrounding Force India’s state of affairs, McLaren boss Zak Brown put Perez on his shortlist for 2019. But despite the approach and the Woking-based outfit’s proclaimed ambitions to restore its former lustre, Perez still felt that Racing Point, and its revitalization…

Magnussen hopes new regs end ‘ridiculous’ race management

Kevin Magnussen hopes F1’s new regulations will put an end to the “ridiculous and extreme” levels of fuel saving and tyre management that drivers have experienced in the past few years.

Russell: Williams set for moment of truth at Spanish GP
