- Nikita Mazepin has taken a swipe at Haas Formula 1 teammate Mick Schumacher. 

In an interview with Russian broadcaster MatchTV, as quoted by Gazetta dello Sport, Mazepin says Schumacher's Ferrari Driver Academy membership gives him an unfair advantage as the German is able to drive the Scuderia's simulator, while Haas doesn't have one of its own that Mazepin can test in.

- 1980 Formula 1 champion Alan Jones has criticised fellow Australian Daniel Ricciardo for his slow start to the 2021 season.

Speaking on Peter Windsor's YouTube channel, he said: “I think Daniel should start concentrating a bit more in the cockpit rather than outside. In my opinion, Daniel is becoming a little preoccupied verbally with things going on outside the car rather than in it.”

Sebastian Vettel has called on F1 to up its environmental and sustainability efforts.

In an interview with F1 Insider, Vettel said: “My point is that there are ways to make the whole Formula One business much more environmentally friendly and sustainable, too. It’s not about doing without things, but making them better and acting more responsibly. That you can live sustainably and still pursue your passion. I think questioning yourself over and over again is the beginning of that.”

Former F1 driver Nico Hulkenberg has joked: "I better not watch Red Bull, because then I will cry," after the German missed out on a seat alongside Max Verstappen for 2021. (MOTORLAT)
