Red Bull could place two junior drivers in Super Formula in 2019

Red Bull powerbroker Helmut Marko has accused Daniel Ricciardo of misleading the organisation about his future

Horner denied claims Red Bull had offered Alonso a drive after he announced he was leaving McLaren and said that Spaniard "tended to cause a bit of chaos" at his teams. "I don't think it would be great to put this sort of light on Daniel". I can understand that, but it's a pity because he is one of the strongest drivers. Winning next year is still unlikely but I think the process over the course of the next 12-18 months will be quite good and encouraging. If he could be in a competitive vehicle, I'm sure they would prefer him to be staying than pursuing his Triple Crown.

The two-time world champion, who it is claimed turned down an offer from Red Bull before announcing his F1 exit, said: "I don't have a crystal ball to know the future. The routine is something I felt was, I don't want to say getting the best of me, but it was clearly affecting me".

"Initially, I had it in my mind that I'd be staying [at Red Bull]". I don't really care.

Speaking about a potential move to a midfield team like Renault in June, Ricciardo said it would have "some appeal" but was not "top of my list" as getting his hands on a championship-calibre auto was a priority.

"So that is why I wanted to come and check out Super Formula first-hand".

Pompeo Seeks 'Decisive Action' Against Terrorists In Pakistan
In his first tweet of the year, Trump said that the USA had "foolishly" given Pakistan $33bn in aid over 15 years. Recently, Imran Khan had said that Islamabad was ready for any sort of assistance to help Kerala flood victims.

"I did the test on Tuesday, and had some time to think about it over those 48 hours and came to my decision".

While he admitted that there was an incident in Baku and other issues, he said: "But as far as equality went within the team, probably from the outside sometimes people probably thought that, but hand on heart, there was never any concern with that or any sign of that". "It might be an inspired choice, it might be one he regrets".

"We sold him the goal of fighting for championships [driver and constructor] in 2021, and to start winning, I hope, in 2020, but not before", Renault Sport F1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul told French newspaper Auto Hebdo.

"But it was the best I could do so I called Christian (Horner)".

According to Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko, Ricciardo's decision to leave the team and join Renault for the next season was very unusual, as the Aussie driver was allegedly ready to sign his new contract before suddenly changing his mind.

Oil Jumps 3% On Big US Crude Draw, Iran Sanctions
The US/China trade tensions fuelled concerns that global economic growth could slow, weakening worldwide energy demand. In June, China was the biggest foreign buyer of American crude, importing a record 15 million barrels that month.

Gasly will step up from Toro Rosso to the senior team, while Sainz will leave the programme entirely to replace Alonso at McLaren following his fellow countryman's decision to quit at the end of 2018.

He said: "It was by no means an easy decision".

But Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen questioned Ricciardo's decision to choose Renault, which has not secured a podium since returning to F1 in 2016.

"It all ended very amicably and basically they're sorry to see me go and appreciate what I've done and given to the team". "Frankly we don't think like that".

China trade war escalates
The dispute centres around Mr Trump's demand for Beijing to drop its protectionist economic stance and buy more U.S. goods. Economists reckon that every $100 billion of imports affected by tariffs would reduce global trade by around 0.5 percent.
