Quotes: Dieter Rencken

In the round-up: Sebastian Vettel isn’t a fan of the huge straights at the Baku City Circuit.

What they say

The drivers’ championship leader said yesterday he prefers the twisty bits in Baku:

The track is very nice with the exception of the straights, maybe they are a bit too long. But they’re part of the track, part of the track’s soul.

I like it, driving around the old town I think is quite challenging, it’s a good track.

The Dan Diaries: Keeping calm to carry on (Red Bull)

“I had this weird thing with my lip happen in Bahrain the weekend before where I bit it, and it must have got infected or something because I kept biting it over and over. So I had to get that taken out and stitched back up in London, so that – and a fair bit of talking about China – was basically the week after Shanghai. I got back to Monaco last Friday, where I could finally put my feet up.”

Goss out as McLaren shuffles technical team (Autosport)
