  • 2019 Chinese Grand Prix Free Practice 1 Report – F1 Racecast – Apr 11 to Apr 14

Sky F1 expert Simon Lazenby correctly predicted the Thai wouldn't be participating in qualifying later in the afternoon with his auto "disintegrated". He lost control, his vehicle striking the barriers hard before coming to rest with major damage. He tried to regain control, but the auto spun around as Albon plowed the front left side into a wall near the pit lane, with parts of the vehicle scattered across the track.

Honda will fit a new power unit to Alexander Albon's re-built Toro Rosso for Formula 1's Chinese Grand Prix.

"I'm more angry and disappointed than anything else". I think the car's really strong.

Both Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton lock out the front row for the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday, with championship leader Bottas capturing pole position ahead of his team-mate.

"It has been a good weekend so far", said Bottas, who leads Hamilton in the championship by just one point. I was obviously pushing and trying to find the limits.

The Finn was just 0.027 seconds clear of Vettel, who was fastest in the morning by a 0.207-second margin ahead of Hamilton.

In the final minutes of Saturday's free practice 3, the notorious final turn in China, turn 16, caught the rookie in its snare. Norris later retired from the race with just a few laps to go.

Hamilton, the most successful driver by far around the 5.4-km Shanghai International Circuit with five wins to date, ended the day fourth.

Ander Herrera issues update about his future at Man United
Idrissa Gueye joined Everton in 2016 from Aston Villa and since the midfielder has been a key figure for the Toffees. Barring a late breakthrough in negotiations, it seems unlikely that Herrera will get his sixth year at Old Trafford.

"If you look at Leclerc and Vettel it's very similar".

Wolff said that the extra speed carried in the corners was what kept Mercedes ahead of the Ferrari's in qualifying.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel was in third, after the team had ordered his teammate Charles Leclerc to move over for the German.

The form guide indicated that Ferrari might be the team to beat here, but after they were off the pace at the last round in Bahrain, Mercedes returned to their all-conquering best.

Ferrari had arrived in China as favorites after showing their speed in Bahrain, particularly on the straights, with Leclerc on pole and leading until a loss of engine power in the closing laps. "We will check it but no big issues".

"I think we are getting more and more there, understanding maybe some things related to different tracks, which Barcelona [testing] doesn't show because it's different".

Hamilton had taken the lead from second on the grid and did not relinquish it from then on. "As a result of the accident, we are changing the PU and sending the one that was in the vehicle at the time of the crash back to Sakura for a full check".
