The Mexican Grand Prix and Daniel Ricciardo Gets Third Spot BOOM! Gone is Vettel After All That Whining

Sebastian Vettel was fuming on the track, saying he was going to hit someone and wagging his finger, delivering a message to race director Charlie Whiting: “F*** off. Honestly f*** off.” and after all that fuss and whining as Max Verstappen put it “crying like a child”.

Daniel 14606933_1151911978223075_9131605563744976896_nRicciardo has eventually finished third after Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen were handed time penalties in a controversial Mexican F1 Grand Prix.

Let’s set the stage. Max Verstappen crossed the line third, but a five-second penalty for leaving the track and gaining an advantage meant he was initially relegated to fifth.

That pushed Sebastian Vettel into third and Verstappen’s Australian team-mate, Ricciardo, up to fourth.
Immediately after the race, Verstappen stood awkwardly alongside frosty Mercedes pair Hamilton and Rosberg in the podium room before seeing his time penalty take effect on the screen.

The 19-year-old then took his leave before Ferrari’s Vettel jogged into the room as what was then thought to be the official third-place winner.

Eventually, the race standings were amended and Vettel was handed a 10-second penalty for “potentially dangerous” driving — dropping him from third to fifth, moving Verstappen up to fourth, and Ricciardo on to the bottom step of the podium.

Ricciardo also said Hamilton deserved a penalty for cutting a corner in similar fashion to Verstappen on an earlier corner and the teenager agreed.

“Lewis ran off, he gained a massive advantage … I didn’t even gain an advantage, so I think it’s ridiculous,” Verstappen said.

Canadian Grand Prix 2014 – Through The ‘Golden Eye’ of Sean Brosnan and fiancé Sanja Banic

%21B8QjHWQCWk%7E%24%28KGrHqYOKigEzS-1wQZ9BM2gY16W%2Bg%7E%7E_12.jpg (658×1000) The multi-talented Sean Brosnan veins carry blood that is Irish and Australian that being from his father Pierce Brosnan (Irish) and his mother Cassandra Harris (Australian) who died in 1991 after a 4-year battle with ovarian cancer. Sean Brosnan with his fiancé Sanja Banic both filmmakers and partners of Knight Marcher Films came to spin their own magic with Red Bull Racing resulting in the first win by the Australian driver born in Perth, Daniel Ricciardo.

Daniel Ricciardo passed series leader Nico Rosberg with two laps to go and held on for his first Formula One victory in a wild Canadian Grand Prix and Sean and Sanja got a real up close look at it all from start to finish.

Ricciardo the 24-year-old became the first non-Mercedes driver to win in seven races this season, although even he admitted there was luck involved (Sean and Sanja maybe) and that it is too early to say that Red Bull is back as a championship contender.

“Obviously Mercedes had their issues and that enabled us to close on them,” a giddy and still disbelieving Ricciardo said after the race. “It’s a bit surreal. Really cool.”

The Aussie driver remembered to save some champagne from the post-race podium celebration to spray on his race engineer, Toronto native Gavin Ward.

Rosberg finished second despite engine and brake problems, while the second Red Bull driven by four-time world champion and defending Canadian Grand Prix winner Sebastian Vettel came in third.

The race ended under a caution flag after a spectacular crash involving Sergio Perez’s Force India car and Felipe Massa’s Williams. They narrowly missed taking Vettel out.

Sean and Sanja are used to hollywood action but in Montreal at the Canadian Grand Prix who could have predicted the ending of the race, and they loved every moment, soon afterwards heading back to Ottawa and to a movie set. Both Sean and Sanja agree “F1 Rocks”.
