Daniel Ricciardo to Mercedes? Lewis Hamilton speaks out on rumours

It also meant that Red Bull's bookended the grid, with Max Verstappen starting last. "I don't know if that was exciting for you to watch".

"This was two years in the making", said Ricciardo, who couldn't use seventh or eighth gears once the problem struck.

"We had problems, we had a lot to deal with during the race".

"But now here at this team that is unlikely and I don't think that is going to happen". Maybe after losing points to Hamilton for three consecutive races, he was just pleased to cut into his deficit. Couple this with the difficulty required to make a pass in Monaco and you get exactly the kind of race we had on Sunday.

"I felt it (offering the shoe) would have been controversial, so best not". Mercedes-AMG's Lewis Hamilton crossed the line third about 17 seconds after the victor to retain the top spot in the 2018 Drivers' Championship.

Flood watch announced for South Florida as Alberto forms in northwestern Caribbean
Dan Kottlowski, hurricane expert for AccuWeather , said he expects the weather system to turn into a named storm by the weekend. The 1 p.m. update on Subtropical Storm Alberto from the National Hurricane Center says the story is still almost stationary .

"I don't think we'll be able to maintain that kind of rhythm in a circuit like Montreal", he said.

"I would imagine his future is at Red Bull", Hamilton said.

Red Bull reckon they will be on the pace in Montreal in two weeks too, so hopefully normal F1 service will be resumed in a six-way fight with great supporting acts. "We knew that would be the case".

Iran demands assurances after United States pullout from nuclear accord
He said that in theory the deal could survive without the United States , but acknowledged "in practice I'm not sure". The deal's proponents say it is crucial to forestalling a nuclear Iran and preventing wider war in the Middle East.

Ricciardo also pitted, on lap 17, and within a lap the original grid order was re-established thanks to all the leading group switching to new rubber.

The Red Bull driver reported a loss of power on lap 28, an issue serious enough for the team to consider telling him to stop the auto and save the engine. That surely made victory even sweeter on Sunday and his post-race celebration on the Red Bull floating Energy Station, dubbed the "floaterhome", was proof of that. I was going through the tires fairly quick.

Ricciardo now sits in third place in the championship, 38 points behind Hamilton.

Hamilton has hosed down talk of a Ricciardo move to Mercedes.

"All in all, Eric Boullier, said the damage cost "20 points of downforce, more or less - so half a second a lap".

Some credited Trump's unorthodox brand of diplomacy with helping bring North Korea to the negotiating table. "It hasn't changed. North Korean leader Kim Jon-Un attends a meeting with a committee of the Workers' Party of Korea on September 3, 2017.

Verstappen continued to supply the thrills and climbed to ninth, when he passed Sainz under late braking by running over the kerbs at the chicane. Stroll would soon develop a puncture as a result of contact with Ericsson, and the Ricciardo-Vettel parade would have to dodge him on lap 10.
