    Not surprised. All his engine parts have been failing! Hopefully that means he can with the fully updated Renault engine then as Renault were being coy with giving Red Bull the latest update due to 'allocation issues'.

    Although it is ridiculous that we are already getting engine penalties at this stage of the competition. 'nuff said me thinks

    can he take a full new set of everything in every session to beef back up his allocation?

    These penalties were supposed to drive down costs and yet they haven't worked at all. The teams just use the new parts and take the penalties. If you have a fast enough car anyway you don't have to worry, unless maybe if it happens on a circuit like Monaco, you'll be back near to the front and score big points anyway. So what's the point?

    No, the loophole was closed for 2017 (after Hamilton did that in Spa 2016)

    If driver takes penalty unit #1 and #2 in the same event, then #1 can't be used again.

    I told you all the solution at the beginning of the year, all the teams should have taken four extra power units in the first race and all taken the same grid penalties. The FIA would have gone in to melt down.

    Danny Ric might avoid a grid penalty in Canada but it is only putting off the inevitable.

    Formula 1: Red Bull has plan to avoid Ricciardo engine penalty

    Red Bull love it when a plan comes together

    Canadian Grand Prix: Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo escapes grid penalty

    In other news Merc will be the only engine supplier not running an upgrading version as they are worried the new engines might go bang.

    If Ricciardo is going to avoid a penalty he might have to be more restrained and careful in the practice sessions.

    Hmm no engine upgrade for Mercedes, I bet Ferrari are rubbing their hands together in glee, I would be if I was them.

    Lance Stroll is the first of potentially many this weekend to hit it.

    They seem to be fast anyway. I do hope they don’t run away from lap one. That would be really boring.

    Grosjean surprised marmot he hit wasn't removed
