Former Toro-Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari has labeled Scuderia Ferrari’s season “terrible” and a “disaster” after the Prancing Horses let Max Verstappen’s lead grow ever bigger at the Dutch Grand Prix.

Ferrari have pretty much thrown themselves out of contention for the Formula 1 Constructors Championship after displaying another tactical horror show at Zandvoort. With a car well and truly worthy of competing for wins and titles, the Scuderia Ferrari personnel have been the ones to blame for the glaring 135-point gap to the top F1 standings.

Ferrari dropping the ball has led Mercedes’ consistency to score points despite having an unfavorable car pay off. The Silver Arrows are now only 30 points adrift from the team in red and will look to overtake Mattia Binotto’s team.

Speaking on Sky Sports F1’s ‘Any Driven Monday’, Alguersuari opened up on Ferrari’s up and down season.

“It’s been terrible. It’s been frustrating,” said the Spanish driver.

“They’ve built a really amazing car, right from the testing you could see in Barcelona, ​​they were the quickest.

“They went to Australia, they were on pole, and for some reason, they just couldn’t really make it with the engine failures and not reliable at all.

“And at the end of the day, Formula One is not just being the quickest out there, you have to finish the race.

“For the drivers, I think it was also very difficult psychologically, especially because you’re the quickest out there, you can win races, you can still be a title contender, and then for some reason or the other, they just mess up .

“They messed strategies with the tires, then problems with the engine. So, of course, psychologically there is a problem, it affects you somehow, and then you make mistakes.

“So I think all in all, they just didn’t find a way, and that’s frustrating. And still, a long way to go, so let’s see how they come out after that.”

Sainz’s slow stop

Alguersuari also admitted that it was difficult to watch his fellow countryman go through that embarrassing pit stop in the Netherlands which not only was incredibly slow, but resulted in a five-second penalty due to an unsafe release.

“Yeah, and it’s not the first time we’ve seen it,” he said.

“So it’s frustrating as I said before, because you really expect the best from your team, every race, especially when now it’s not just about having the best car and doing amazing laps. You can’t really fail anywhere on the pit stops, on the strategy, if you want to go for the title, you have to finish the race, you have to finish in the top three. This is something Carlos is really aware of.

“If you look at his performances and his average scores, he’s always in the top five, top six. When it rains, he deals with the situation in a really perfect condition. He’s managed to always survive, which is super important for a top team.

“So, if you want to go for the title, you cannot really make mistakes and the team should really be aware that they are not performing well for the drivers at all. It’s been a disaster. It is being a disaster.”

Ferrari will be looking to turn around their bad fortune at their home race in Monza, Italy where they will be wearing yellow racing suits and boast a new look Ferrari F1-75.

Mercedes driver to fill in for Sebastian Vettel at 2022 Italian Grand Prix

Mercedes F1 reserve driver Nyck de Vries will feature in Formula 1 for the third time this season, as he is set to replace Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin for FP1 at the Italian Grand Prix this weekend.

De Vries is regularly spotted watching the races from the comfort of the Silver Arrows garage, usually whilst standing next to team principal Toto Wolff.

Incredibly, Aston Martin will be the third team that the Dutch driver has driven for this season, with all of his appearances coming in FP1 sessions.

He drove for Williams Racing at the Spanish Grand Prix and for Mercedes at the French Grand Prix.

The 2020/21 Formula E World Champion has been linked to a 2023 seat at Williams for some time now, with it looking like a duel between De Vries and F2 driver Logan Sargeant for Nicholas Latifi’s seat.

Should De Vries not be part of Williams’ driver line-up next season, then it is believed that he will sign for the new Maserati Formula E team for the all-electric championship’s ninth season.

A seat in F1 is supposedly his preferred option, with the Dutchman being incredibly excited to be driving Aston Martin’s AMR22 at the “legendary” Italian GP.

“I am really looking forward to driving for AMF1, particularly at such a legendary circuit as Monza,” said De Vries.

“It will be my third FP1 session of the season, and in the third different Formula One chassis and these opportunities have given me a fantastic insight into how Formula One cars and teams function and operate.

“I hope I can bring a fresh perspective to the AMF1 team and can undertake a run program that proves beneficial to us both.”

Team principal Mike Krack is “delighted” to be able to give De Vries the opportunity at Monza, where the Aston Martin boss is interested in the 27-year-old’s “perspectives and insights”.

“We are delighted to welcome Nyck to our team, and we look forward to working with him at Monza,” said Krack.

“I have watched Nyck’s career with great interest – he drove brilliantly to win the Formula 2 title in 2019 and underlined his class by winning the Formula E World Championship in 2020/2021.

“We are looking forward to gaining his perspectives and insights about our car. His achievements show that he clearly deserves a shot at Formula One – and, hopefully, this opportunity to get behind the wheel of the AMR22 will allow him to showcase his abilities to the wider world.”

F1 to hold minute's silence for Queen before Monza FP1

The death of the Queen aged 96 on Thursday prompted a flood of tributes from the world of motor racing and Formula 1.

As a mark of respect for Britain’s longest serving monarch, F1 teams, drivers and officials will gather in the pitlane at Monza ten minutes before opening practice is scheduled to start at 2pm to pay their respects.

There are also plans to hold a similar tribute on the grid ahead of the start of the F1 race on Sunday, but the details of this have not yet been finalised.

Key figures from F1 expressed their condolences to the Royal Family over the Queen’s death, as they praised the impact she had on them and the wider world.

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said: “Formula 1 mourns the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. For more than seven decades she dedicated her life to public service with dignity and devotion and inspired so many around the world.

“Formula 1 sends its deepest condolences to the Royal Family and to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.”

George Russell said: “I’m so sad to hear about the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her devotion to our country and her gracious leadership were inspirational to so many generations of people in the UK and around the world.

“My family and I send our deepest condolences to The Royal Family and to all those who admired her services to our country for seven decades.”

The McLaren F1 team changed its social media handles to black as a mark of respect, and it remembered the influence the Queen had. It also posted an image of the day that she opened the team’s current McLaren Technology Center factory.

Ferrari hailed her as ‘groundbreaking’ as it offered its sympathies to the Royal family and the British members of the paddock.

FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem issued a statement making clear how influential the Queen and Royal Family had been in helping support the growth of motorsport.

“It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,” he said.

“The Queen was undoubtedly one of the most respected heads of state ever to have lived, and I send my condolences, and those of the entire FIA ​​community, to the Royal Family and all of the citizens of The United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

“Motor sport, and especially Formula 1, has its heart in the United Kingdom, and the Royal Family has given great support and patronage to the sport over the years. For this we thank them, and those events taking place around the world this weekend will undoubtedly be undertaken in honor of her Majesty.”

F1 plans Italian GP tribute after Queen Elizabeth II's death

Formula 1 plans to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II with a minute’s silence at the Italian Grand Prix.

The world’s longest-reigning and most recognisable monarch passed away on Thursday evening, a few hours after it emerged she was under medical supervision at Balmoral Castle.

F1 immediately issued a statement paying tribute to the United Kingdom’s queen of the last 70 years.

“Formula 1 mourns the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” said F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.

“For more than seven decades she dedicated her life to public service with dignity and devotion and inspired so many around the world.

“Formula 1 sends its deepest condolences to the Royal Family and to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.”

A minute’s silence is planned with all teams participating ahead of Friday’s first practice session.

It is likely that another minute’s silence will be held on the grid ahead of Sunday’s race.

Several F1 teams have paid tribute in the aftermath of the queen’s death.

“We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, an inspiring figure who dedicated her life to public service with integrity and quiet leadership for 70 years,” said Mercedes F1 team boss Toto Wolff.

“The impact she made in the UK and around the world will be felt for generations to come and the values ​​she stood for are the best of all human values: dignity, respect and compassion.

“We send our heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family and the people of the UK and the Commonwealth.”

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner, who was given an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honors in 2013, said: “Very saddened to learn of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“Her remarkable reign touched and moved so many; remaining steadfast in her duties as a mother and our monarch to the end.

“I had the honor of meeting Her Majesty a couple of times and she will be remembered by a country and commonwealth whom she served for more than 70 years, devoting herself with unreserved dignity and dedication.

“I would like to take the opportunity to send my deepest condolences to the Royal Family at this time.”

“On behalf of the entire Aston Martin family, I wish to pay tribute to Her Majesty the Queen,” said Aston Martin chairman Lawrence Stroll.

“We remember the light she shines across the world; the people she brought together; the many lives she touched.

“We remember, too, her sense of duty – an unfailing devotion both to the United Kingdom and to the Commonwealth.

“Hers was a life lived beyond self. United in grief, we remember her great life – long in years and huge in achievement.

“To the royal family, we offer our deepest condolences, as we join the world in our mourning.”

FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem described the queen as “undoubtedly one of the most respected heads of state ever to have lived”, adding “motorsport, and especially Formula 1, has its heart in the United Kingdom, and the Royal Family has over the years given great support and patronage to the sport”.

The FIA ​​is rolling out some major rule changes halfway through the 2022 Formula 1 season. Though tweaks to the guidelines are not unheard of, this year includes an unprecedented penalty. Why? The racing championship swapped to an all-new car this year, and it is putting Formula 1 drivers at risk.

The all-new Formula 1 car was designed to make races more exciting

Formula 1 has been around since 1950, but some say the modern racing lacks stakes. For example, Lewis Hamilton has won seven championships since 2008. Mercedes has taken seven of the last eight championships. The FIA ​​introduced a revolutionary rule change for the 2022 season, hoping to shake things up.

The first element of the new rules is the all-new car. The old car made most of its downforce with a front and rear wing. The result was so much turbulence behind the car, that passing became very difficult. The 2022 car is bringing back ground effects, making much of its downforce with an aerodynamic “floor” (also called a plank) to rapidly evacuate air from beneath the car.

The second element of the new rules is a cost cap, limiting the amount each team can spend on research and development. The engine manufacturers must assemble their powerplants from commercially available materials and can’t hold onto rare materials for F1. Certain especially costly systems, such as suspension with adaptive hydraulic dampers, are banned too.

Porpoising and bottoming out are making the races too exciting

The two major changes for Formula 1’s 2022 season are conspiring to create major safety issues. Firstly, the new aerodynamic floor reduces the race cars’ ground clearance. On certain tracks drivers are bottoming out.

Secondly, the aerodynamic floor has proven so effective at creating downforce that it is pulling the cars too close to the ground. How low is too low? Too low is simply when the car cuts off airflow through the channels of the aerodynamic floor. Then the car loses downforce, springs up to a higher ride height and begins to generate downforce again.

2022 Formula 1 cars can cycle through this dangerous phenomenon so rapidly they are buffeted like an airplane in turbulence. Fans are colloquially calling it porpoising, and it threatens to injure drivers and cause a major crash.

To make matters worse, the new spending cap is making it difficult for even the wealthiest F1 teams to adapt to the new cars. Mercedes, for example, has struggled with porpoising as much as any other team.

One easy way to prevent porpoising is to raise the ride height of the affected Formula 1 car. Why doesn’t every team do this? Because the higher a Formula 1 car rides, the slower it must navigate the track.

The FIA’s solution to this struggle between teams and officials is simply to outlaw porpoising. That’s right, starting with September 4th’s Belgian Grand Prix, any team with a car oscillating up and down to quickly could be subject to a penalty. This adds an incentive for teams to raise their ride height if their car is porpoising.

A second aspect of the rule change is to regulate the amount of flex the aerodynamic floor can have. The FIA ​​is unhappy with Ferrari and Red Bull’s interpretations of its aerodynamic floor requirements, believing they were seeking a sort of loophole with more flexible aerodynamic floors that don’t create as much downforce as they should. What’s more, it is difficult to measure the oscillation in a car’s ride height if the aerodynamic floor beneath it is also flexes quickly.

The FIA ​​is rolling out some major rule changes halfway through the 2022 Formula 1 season. Though tweaks to the guidelines are not unheard of, this year includes an unprecedented penalty. Why? The racing championship swapped to an all-new car this year, and it is putting Formula 1 drivers at risk.

Formula 1 has been around since 1950, but some say the modern racing lacks stakes. For example, Lewis Hamilton has won seven championships since 2008. Mercedes has taken seven of the last eight championships. The FIA ​​introduced a revolutionary rule change for the 2022 season, hoping to shake things up.

The first element of the new rules is the all-new car. The old car made most of its downforce with a front and rear wing. The result was so much turbulence behind the car, that passing became very difficult. The 2022 car is bringing back ground effects, making much of its downforce with an aerodynamic “floor” (also called a plank) to rapidly evacuate air from beneath the car.

The second element of the new rules is a cost cap, limiting the amount each team can spend on research and development. The engine manufacturers must assemble their powerplants from commercially available materials and can’t hold onto rare materials for F1. Certain especially costly systems, such as suspension with adaptive hydraulic dampers, are banned too.

Porpoising and bottoming out are making the races too exciting

F1 Driver Carlos Sainz Jr. Learned Early to Be the Hunter, Not the Prey

At the age of 11, as Carlos Sainz Jr. was trying to forge his way in karting, it became apparent that he was too nice.

“I used to be very shy, and I used to be friends with a lot of people, all the racing drivers,” Sainz said in an interview.

“When I would then arrive at a go-kart track, I would get pushed around, bumped out of a race by people I thought would never do that to me because we got on well out of the car.”

“My dad told me, ‘Look, it’s not only in life but also in any sport that you do, you either bite or you get bitten. You need to be the one pushing, to be the hard one because if you’re not, you’re going to be the prey,’” Sainz said. “That advice changed my approach and my career.”

It is the way Sainz now attacks Grands Prix. “Once I put the helmet on, I try to be the animal hunting, not the hunted animal,” he said.

His father has been an important pillar in his life, although his early years were not easy even if his passion for racing was fueled by the exploits of the man he looked up to.

“My dad was a two-time champion in the golden era of rally when everyone was following rally like crazy,” Sainz said. “In Europe, it was huge.

“But it meant I didn’t see him a lot because he was very busy. There were years when he was away from home for between 250 to 300 days a year.” He said he grew up and went to school without seeing him much.

Sainz, who began racing in Formula 1 in 2015 when he was 20, said he always felt destined to follow his father.

“My bet is there must be something genetic in it,” he said. “There is a video of me when I was 2½ years old in a battery car, and I was doing 360s and Scandinavian flicks where you do a perfect sideways corner.

“No way my father taught me that, but when I look back on those videos I feel there was something inside my body that knew how to drive, even at 2½ years old. I was born to drive, you can see it in the video.”

Now in his eighth season in Formula 1, Sainz is with his fourth team in Ferrari after driving for Toro Rosso, Renault and McLaren.

It was during his two years with McLaren that he developed a strong bond with the driver Lando Norris, which has withstood their becoming rivals after Sainz left for Ferrari in 2021.

Norris joined McLaren as a rookie in 2019 and was paired with Sainz, who already had four years of experience.

“It was nice coming into Formula 1 with a teammate that was helpful,” Norris said. “He helped me learn many things and get in the rhythm of Formula 1. That’s something that stays with you for a long time.”

There is always a threat that the relationship could change, particularly if they should fight for wins and championships.

“When we’re on track, we want to beat each other and to prove who wants to be a better driver,” Norris said. “But things like that just make it enjoyable.”

Charles Leclerc, who drives for Ferrari with Sainz, said they “get along super well.” They often play chess together.

After finishing ahead of Leclerc in the drivers’ standings last season, Sainz is 26 points behind his teammate this year after a difficult start adapting to the car. Sainz has since claimed his first pole position and victory in Formula 1, winning the British Grand Prix in July.

Fernando Alonso, a hero to Sainz who also comes from Spain, said he still had time to become a champion.

“He made a lot of progress during his McLaren days and now with Ferrari, and you think ‘Why not?'” said Alonso, who drives for Alpine. “You need to have the right package, the best car that year, a little bit of luck as well. He’s proving he can be as almost as anyone.”

If Sainz had not been a driver, he would have tried to become a professional golfer. His handicap is 10, and he and Norris often play together.

Sainz said, though, that it was likely that he would not have made it because “I believe that you are born to do something, and I was born to do racing. God would not have given me two talents.”

However, he’d still like to meet Tiger Woods.

“For me, I always look up to people who create a point in the history of their sport that changes that sport forever, and Tiger is the one for me, of any other athlete in the world, that changed his sport the most,” said.

“Even with all the issues he has been through, 99 percent of people still want Tiger to win. Tell me an athlete who can do this? no one.”

And if Sainz were to meet Woods? “He’s the only guy I think I would get nervous meeting because of the charisma and the aura he has around him.”

Hamilton wants to stay at Mercedes: 'I can race for quite a bit longer'

MONZA, Italy (AP) — Lewis Hamilton insists he has no plans to retire from Formula One after this disappointing season, and the seven-time world champion added he wants to stay at Mercedes “until the day I die.”

Hamilton is winless through 15 races this season and sixth in the standings. He trails reigning world champion Max Verstappen, who beat Hamilton for last year’s title in a controversial season-ending race, by 152 points heading into the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday.

The poor rollout of Mercedes’ draggy 2022 car has Hamilton in danger of the first winless season of his 16-year career.

There’s been speculation Daniel Ricciardo could move to Mercedes as a reserve driver next season, then take over for Hamilton when the Briton’s contract expires at the end of 2023.

“For years we’ve be going around, up and down with stories of retirement and stopping and for me, I feel healthier than I’ve ever felt,” the 37-year-old Hamilton responded when he was asked about it while sitting next to Ricciardo at a news conference on Thursday.

“As I focus a lot on that, I’m feeling fit, I love what I’m doing and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.”

He then turned to Ricciardo, who had been whispering to Hamilton through the 30-minute news conference, “sorry, buddy.”

Hamilton is in his 10th season with Mercedes. He moved there after six seasons with McLaren.

“I love that we have the long partnership we have. I feel like we are embarking on a lot of really positive things, not only in the sport but outside,” Hamilton continued.

“And I think there’s a lot of work to accomplish together. So I want to be a part of that, I think I’ll always be with Mercedes, until the day I die. And I feel like I can race for quite a bit longer so I’ll be potentially steering towards that.”

Hamilton was set to take a grid penalty for using a fourth power unit — one over the limit — as a result of his crash at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Ricciardo won at Monza last year to record McLaren’s first F1 victory since 2012. But he heads into this year’s race with his future uncertain after a buyout was negotiated with the Australian on the final year of his McLaren contract.

“I’m really assessing everything and I mean, in short, I don’t have anything tead up yet,” Ricciardo said. “And I think when I do I’ll be the first to tell you, there’s no reason for me to hold back any information now. It’s kind of all open and out there.

“So I’m sure over time, the right thing, whatever that ends up being, will make sense,” he continued. “It’s not just about what’s right for next year, it’s what’s right for my future. It goes beyond 2023. So it’s complex, but when I know you will.”

The following is from Westby Racing…

Westby Racing is proud to announce that they have once again signed their incumbent Superbike rider Mathew Scholtz to a new contract for 2023.

For the seventh consecutive year, Mathew will race for the team aboard the #11 Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 in the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship.

Winner of 15 MotoAmerica races during his tenure with Westby Racing, Mathew has tallied five victories for Westby in MotoAmerica’s premier Superbike class, including a win in race one at Road America this past June.

“I’m really happy to sign for the 2023 season, and to continue being part of the Westby family again,” Mathew said. “I just want to give a huge thank you to Tryg Westby for believing in me again and entrusting me to the Westby team and brand. Since 2017, when I first signed with them, we’ve grown together as a team and a family and gotten better every single season. I feel like I’m in the right place at the right time. We are really reaching the peak of performance in myself, the bike, and the team, and I really feel that there are even better things to come for all of us. I’m excited for these last two rounds of the season. At Pittsburgh, we made some big steps forward. Just a massive thank you to everyone on the Westby team, from Chuck (Giacchetto) managing it, to Ed (Sullivan) as my crew chief, to Olly (Hutchinson) and Robert (Jensen) working on the bike, to our electronics guy Vitto (Bolognesi) who joined us this year. It’s really a family team, and I couldn’t be happier to be racing with them.”

“Mathew has been with us since 2017,” commented Westby Racing team owner Tryg Westby. “He’s always given us maximum effort on the track, he’s constantly improving right along with everyone else on our team, and I’m thrilled to be able to have him signed as our rider going forward. We fully expect that 2023 will be our best year yet, and we’re looking to finish off the 2022 season strong at New Jersey Motorsports Park this weekend and at Barber Motorsports Park in two weeks.”

Also commenting on Mathew’s new contract, Westby Racing team manager Chuck Giacchetto said, “I just want to say thank you to our owner Tryg Westby for giving us all yet another year of racing with a rider we know and trust. To think this will be Mathew’s seventh year with the team is just incredible. I’m sure the last two events of the season will be great ones, and then, we move right into off-season testing, and that should set us up for a great run in 2023. Again, a very special thanks to our owner and dear friend Tryg Westby.”

“Mathew has been with us since 2017,” commented Westby Racing team owner Tryg Westby. “He’s always given us maximum effort on the track, he’s constantly improving right along with everyone else on our team, and I’m thrilled to be able to have him signed as our rider going forward. We fully expect that 2023 will be our best year yet, and we’re looking to finish off the 2022 season strong at New Jersey Motorsports Park this weekend and at Barber Motorsports Park in two weeks.”

Also commenting on Mathew’s new contract, Westby Racing team manager Chuck Giacchetto said, “I just want to say thank you to our owner Tryg Westby for giving us all yet another year of racing with a rider we know and trust. To think this will be Mathew’s seventh year with the team is just incredible. I’m sure the last two events of the season will be great ones, and then, we move right into off-season testing, and that should set us up for a great run in 2023. Again, a very special thanks to our owner and dear friend Tryg Westby.”

RLL Hires Veteran F1 Engineer as Technical Director

Stefano Sordo, who has more than 20 years of engineering experience with top Formula One teams, will join Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing as the team’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES technical director starting Oct. 1, team officials announced Sept 8.

Sordo spent the past six seasons with McLaren Racing F1 as head and director of vehicle performance. Before that, he was with Red Bull Racing F1, among other teams. He will oversee a multitiered engineering structure at the team’s new headquarters in Zionsville, Indiana.

“I’m very excited to be joining Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s team in the INDYCAR SERIES,” Sordo said. “It is a very challenging and very competitive series where I think every competitor can have a chance at winning every time they participate in a race, providing you get all the ingredients right.

“The excitement of this new role for me is to challenge myself and see if with the experience and methodology developed through many years spent in F1 I can help the team moving forward in becoming a consistent, front-running team. This is the clear challenge and target that I set for myself, and I look forward to getting started. I would like to thank Bobby (Rahal) and Mike (Lanigan) for this opportunity and their trust in my abilities, and I hope I can repay them with successes at the track.”

Sordo earned a master of science degree in mechanical engineering from Polytechnic University in Milan, Italy. He started his professional racing career as a design and performance engineer at Tatuus F3 in 1996.

In late 1996, he moved to DC Cook Motorsport’s F3 and F3000 team as a race engineer for the 1997-98 seasons. He joined McLaren as a race engineer with their F3000 program for 1999-2000 before he got his start in Formula One with Arrows as a race and test engineer for the 2001 and 2002 seasons. He then joined Jaguar Racing F1 for the 2003 and 2004 seasons as race engineer.

At the end of 2004, Jaguar Racing F1 became Red Bull Racing F1, and he stayed on until 2016 working first as race engineer and then moving into the aerodynamic department from 2007 for the subsequent 10 years in the position of head of aerodynamic performance.

While Sordo was at Red Bull, the team won four consecutive Drivers and Constructors championship titles with Sebastian Vettel between 2010-2013. He then joined McLaren F1 in October 2016 and has been head and then director of the vehicle performance department until joining RLL as technical director.

I’m so please that Stefano will be joining the team as technical director,” team co-owner Bobby Rahal said. “He is well respected in the industry, and his track record speaks for itself having worked with organizations like McLaren and Red Bull in Formula One, among others. I’m confident that Stefano will bring to us a perspective that will raise our game against our competition and work well with our existing engineering staff.”

Said co-owner Mike Lanigan: “Stefano has shown he is capable of leading large groups of engineers at the top level of motorsport, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have him join our team. His depth of experience, combined with his knowledge of the various areas to maximize the performance of a race car, will be a tremendous asset to us going forward.”

RLL fields three cars in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES this season, for veterans Graham Rahal and Jack Harvey, and Rookie of the Year points leader Christian Lundgaard.

Monza return will be a "weird feeling" amid McLaren F1 struggles

Ricciardo took his only win in two years with McLaren at last year’s Italian Grand Prix, leading teammate Lando Norris home in a 1-2 win, McLaren’s first F1 victory in nine years.

But Ricciardo’s Monza success proved a rare highlight in his troublesome McLaren stint, leading to the Woking team’s decision to end his contract a year early and move for Alpine junior and reigning F2 champion Oscar Piastri instead.

Ricciardo heads to the scene of his last win off the back of a disastrous Dutch Grand Prix, qualifying 18th and finishing 17th in Zandvoort last weekend, with the Australian acknowledging his Monza return will evoke “weird feelings” amid his McLaren struggles.

“I’m sure there’ll be some weird feelings going back,” Ricciardo said. “Certainly, maybe some happy sad feelings, because it was such a big moment last year, but I think we’re in a different position this year.

“I’d love to say we would be fighting for a podium, but I think we know the truth at the moment where we are.”

With his F1 future still up in limbo, Ricciardo added he was still motivated to end his McLaren days on a high, saying he doesn’t “want to go out on a 17th place”.

“I do want to get to Monza with the energy that I know I can show and the result I know I can get,” he explained.

“I don’t want to go out on a 17th place or something like that, so I’m going to keep fighting through it.

“I love combat sports and I’m used to watching and supporting fighters who get knocked down and get back up, so I’m trying to put myself in that position now.

“I think by the end of the season for sure I will want to just switch off and spend some time home. But I’m not ready for it yet.

“It has been uncomfortable at times, the last couple of weekends, but I’m not ready to just go and hide and close the door yet.”
