Red Bull on F1 powertrain division
Mercedes: Crashes a worry under cap
Ricciardo had to "swallow pride"
Alpine pleased with Imola F1 update

Red Bull is targeting the ‘best talent’ available to join its ambitious Formula 1 engine project, as work began this week on its new state-of-the-art factory at Milton Keynes.

Mercedes believes large accidents, such as Valtteri Bottas' sizeable Imola crash, could also have a knock-on effect on the team's development due to Formula 1's new budget cap.

Daniel Ricciardo said he had to "swallow his pride" when his McLaren Formula 1 team asked him to move over for teammate Lando Norris in Imola but accepted the call was fair.

The updates brought by Alpine to Imola for its A521 Formula 1 car may offer a bigger step in performance at other tracks, according to racing director Davide Brivio.
