McLaren critical of Ferrari over Leclerc

  McLaren critical of Ferrari over Leclerc McLaren's Andreas Seidl said Ferrari "put everyone else at risk" by not pitting Charles Leclerc immediately after sustaining damage.Stewards punished Leclerc and Ferrari after Sunday's race in Suzuka for staying out on track with a damaged car for two laps beyond the Monegasque's first-lap collision with Max Verstappen.

McLaren insist they must leave "nothing to chance" as they bid to close out fourth place in F1's Constructors' Championship over 2019's final races. McLaren are therefore strong favourites to secure their first top-four constructors' position since 2012, but the Woking team are remaining vigilant.

Jenson Button reckons McLaren are now on “the right track” after his fighting fourth place in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. “If you’d said we’d have finished fourth here this weekend, I’d have been very happy with that result but when you’re actually fighting in fourth for a podium, you’re

McLaren are therefore strong favourites to secure their first top-four constructors' position since 2012, but the Woking team are remaining vigilant.

"As we head into these final few races, our focus remains on maximising the opportunities to score points through work at the track and back at the factory," said team principal Andreas Seidl.

OnePlus CEO explains why there’s no 5G version of the 7T Pro

  OnePlus CEO explains why there’s no 5G version of the 7T Pro An experiment that didn’t make the T-series cutIt was an odd omission, especially since OnePlus was so eager to release a 5G device so early in the technology’s lifecycle. In October 2018, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau talked about wanting OnePlus to release the first 5G device in Europe, and the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G was subsequently one of the first 5G devices to launch in the UK alongside the Samsung S10 5G. However, while Samsung has gone on two announce two more 5G devices — the Galaxy Note 10 5G and midrange A90 5G — OnePlus doesn’t seem as interested in a follow-up, despite rumors that the company was going to announce a 5G McLaren Edition of the new phone.

Force India believes that McLaren could now play a decisive role in its battle with Williams for fourth place in the constructors' championship. The Silverstone-based team has closed to within 15 points of Williams in the battle behind Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari. But with the fight between them finely

Carlos Sainz boosted McLaren's haul to 111 points with an impressive drive to fifth place last time out in Japan, a result which moved the Spaniard into the top six of the Drivers' Championship for the first time in his career.

He is now ahead of two drivers, Pierre Gasly (by three points) and Alex Albon (by 12 points) who have each spent part of the season racing for Red Bull.

"Jumping to sixth position in the Drivers' Championship after another strong weekend in Suzuka is encouraging and it only adds up to our motivation to keep pushing until the end of the year," said Sainz.

"It won't be easy to keep that position but I'll fight for it with everything we've got. We also took another important step in the Constructors' Championship, but we need to keep focused."
