Mane focused on Liverpool amid Real speculation

Mane focused on Liverpool amid Real speculation Sadio Mane has played down rumours about a potential move away from Anfield in the near future. Real are looking to spend big this summer on proven, top-level players like himself. As reported by The Times, Mane distanced himself from rumours about his future. “For me the most important thing is Liverpool and I am happy here.” This will allow Liverpool fans to breath easy, with several of their key player’s targets for the top teams in Europe. However, the fact Klopp has got the club fighting on both fronts for the Premier League and Champions League fronts shows that Liverpool are one of the big teams on the continent once again.

Max Verstappen says he hasn’t contemplated a move away from Red Bull despite rumours regarding his future, insisting “it feels like the place to be at the moment”.

Red Bull began a new engine partnership with Honda at the beginning of this season but the switch hasn’t delivered the results the Austrian outfit had hoped to achieve.

Verstappen has secured two podium finishes in Melbourne and Spain – both third place finishes – but, while he’s finished every race in the top five, the RB15 is still in the shadow of Mercedes’ dominant W10.

Vettel snatches Canadian GP pole from Hamilton

Vettel snatches Canadian GP pole from Hamilton Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel clinched his first pole of the 2019 Formula 1 season, narrowly beating championship leader Lewis Hamilton in qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix. Charles Leclerc rounded out the top three ahead of Daniel Ricciardo, who qualified in fourth to seal Renault’s best qualifying result since returning to F1 as a manufacturer team. In the battle for pole, Hamilton seized the advantage after the first runs in Q3, posting a 1m10.493s benchmark to beat Vettel by 0.1s. Hamilton marginally improved on his second and final lap. However, Vettel propelled his Ferrari to a 1m10.246s time to clinch his first pole since the 2018 German Grand Prix.

Red Bull had hoped a winter switch to Honda power units would move it into contention for regular race wins and championships, but despite an encouraging step Asked ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix how long he is willing to be patient at Red Bull , Verstappen said: “ I ’m not even thinking about that.

Verstappen 's future has been under scrutiny this season, with his growing frustration at his run of bad luck and retirements fuelling suggestions he will look for a way out of Red Bull this year. Several reports last week suggested Verstappen has signed to drive for Ferrari in 2019.

Asked if the frustration at not being able to fight for F1 titles was fuelling a desire to move elsewhere, Verstappen said, as quoted by “I’m not even thinking about that.

“At the end of the day it’s not easy, as you see with Ferrari as well, to close the gap.

“Mercedes is at the moment just doing a very good job but I feel very good in the team and it feels like the place to be at the moment. I’m not even thinking about those things.

“I feel good within the team as well I feel very relaxed and I think that also helps,” he added.

“You spend a lot of time with each other already over the years so you get to know each other better. Communication is going very well and I’m having a good time.”

Verstappen felt he maximised Red Bull’s package in Canada, at a circuit he expected it to struggle on, but the Dutchman is aware there is still considerable improvements to be made to challenge for race victories.

“Monaco we were the second-best team but I knew this track [Montreal] was not going to be great, even though last year we were quite competitive,” said Verstappen.

“But I think back then our car was quite a lot better than the Mercedes and the Ferrari and now I wouldn’t say that we are superior to them, so automatically it becomes quite hard over here.

“We are working hard to improve, we know that we have to improve. I think that’s not a secret but we also knew that from the beginning of the year, so it is not like a big shock what is happening now.”
