Daniel Ricciardo, F1 Bahrain Grand Prix | Electrocution fear after Renault failure

Hulkenberg remains humble after fifth place finish in FP2

Hulkenberg remains humble after fifth place finish in FP2

Few drivers are as liked as they are respected in F1.

After stopping on the entry of Turn 2 with "power unit issues", his car's energy recovery system alert light turned red, signifying the auto was "electrically unsafe".

"In Charles situation coming up to his seat this year, it is a bit like me when I came from Toro Rosso to Red Bull", said the seven-time Grand Prix victor.

"Everything becomes easier, you have more grip, and it is like, oh wow the auto can do this?"

Asked if the race was everything he had hoped for on his first outing with Alfa Romeo, Raikkonen replied: "Not all, but I think we will take it. We'll see after tomorrow".

"The stewards reviewed video evidence and heard from the driver of vehicle #27 (Nico Hulkenberg) and the driver of auto #99 (Antonio Giovinazzi) and the team representatives", the stewards' decision read.

Cowboys' Byron Jones has hip surgery
Jones has appeared in all 64 regular-season games since getting drafted by Dallas in the first round back in 2015. Able to play outside and inside in the slot, Jones compiled 67 tackles and 14 passes defended last season.

This, it appears, is undoubtedly questionable and worrying.

Raikkonen ran ninth in the first stint, escaping a first corner brush of wheels with Lando Norris to slot in behind the two Haas cars and Nico Hulkenberg's Renault in the "class B" battle.

Daniel Ricciardo has been forced to retire again as his disastrous start to life at Renault continued at the Bahrain Grand Prix. On the other hand, Daniel Ricciardo had failed to finish the race. And since there seem to be quite a lot of them, Ricciardo did express a sense of urgency in those struggles. To his fans and loyal bracket of supporters, this isn't a great piece of news- right?

"It was quite hard, especially on the qualifying sim in the afternoon", said Ricciardo to F1i.com.

"I mean, I was a long way off, so we are just trying to figure out why".

"Unfortunately, we had an issue with the cooling, but I need to say thanks to the guys because we went back on the track and I did at least two laps, just to feel a little bit the vehicle. Er, traction, well it's not just traction - there are a few things we're trying to improve: driveability, ride and response of the auto, things like this".
