Ricciardo eager for "more mind games" in F1


In the round-up: Daniel Ricciardo believes Formula 1 drivers could use mind games on their rivals more than they do.

In brief

Ricciardo enjoys F1 mind games

RB driver Ricciardo said “I wish there was a bit more mind games” between F1 drivers.

“For a very high-intensity sport it’s still a very, kind of, respectful sport,” he said in an interview for Nova. “Obviously I like the respect element.

“But there’s a few little things here and there you might say a little something to someone to just disrupt their rhythm a little bit. But it’s not happening all the time.”

Verstappen “hates” participating in Drive to Survive

Max Verstappen may have ended his boycott of Drive to Survive but he admitted he dislikes taking part in filming for the Netflix series.

“You don’t really see a lot of me on Drive to Survive because I don’t like doing it,” he told The Project. “You probably don’t get the right side of me because it’s just an interview.

“I’m just sitting down in a dark room, and I hate that. There’s always questions about just F1-related stuff, which I anyway don’t like to talk about.”

The series owes its popularity to the revealing glimpses of paddock life it provides, but Verstappen doesn’t want to be part of that. “Some things are just private,” he said. “People don’t need to know what we are doing or what we are saying.”

Memorial service for Moss in May

Westminster Abbey in London will hold a memorial service in May for Stirling Moss, who passed away four years ago. No public service was held when Moss died in April 2020 due to the restrictions in place for the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tickets are available free of charge for the event on the morning of Wednesday 8th May. Moss’s family invited people to “celebrate the life of Sir Stirling Moss OBE; remembering the friend, the father, the racer, the gentleman, the joker, and the world-renowned hero who was adored by so many.”

First trailer for Golden Lap management game revealed

A grand prix-themed management game set in the seventies is in development by the team behind Art of Rally and Absolute Drift. Golden Lap will put players in charge of handling their team’s drivers, staff, cars and sponsors, then compete around a selection of F1-like circuits.

“We wanted to try something different while staying true to our passion for racing,” said Dune Casu, founder of game creators Funselektor “We’re taking that opportunity with Golden Lap, which serves as a throwback to one of the most iconic eras of motorsport when it was exciting and dangerous in equal measure, teams were experimenting with designs, and drivers were notorious both on and off the track.”
