F1 >>> nEWs A month after Ron Dennis opened the door to suggestions that he would like to see Fernando Alonso return to McLaren, team principal eric Boullier has affirmed his support for Jenson Button. Over the weekend Button, 34, indicated that there was no deal in place yet that would see him continue his tenure past the current season, his fifth with McLaren. But Boullier, who took over as team principal this season, clearly sees potential in continuing the partnership with the 2009 World Champion and star rookie Kevin Magnussen. “I would love, when it is time, to sit down with him, to carry on with him, clearly, and as long as we can,” Boullier told British broadcaster Sky. “With Kevin as well. “But I more and more appreciate working with Jenson, it’s true.” at BriEFly » Daniel Ricciardo is to receive this year’s Trofeo Lorenzo Bandini. The Canadian GP winner will receive the award in Brisighella, Italy, the home town of Bandini, who was killed in the 1967 Monaco GP at the age of 31. Former winners of the award, which is presented to an outstanding figure in motor racing, include Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel and Ricciardo’s countryman Mark Webber. » The all-Marussia crash on lap one was somewhat overshadowed by the last-lap melee involving Felipe Massa and Chico Perez but that does not mean that the stewards turned a blind eye. Max Chilton has been adjudged as responsible for the collision and has been dealt a three-place grid penalty for the Austrian Grand Prix. » The promoters of the Canadian GP have been given a contract extension. The race, which apart from a two-year absence has been held on the Isle Notre Dame track since 1978, will continue until at least 2024. As a part of the deal, the track will receive significant upgrades, notably to its pit complex. » Kimi Raikkonen has another racing engineer. According to the Toronto Sun, Ferrari has promoted David Lloyd to work with the Finn alongside race engineer Antonio Spangle. Briton Lloyd previously worked for the team in a factory-based role. » The tyre choices for four upcoming Grands Prix have been announced. Pirelli will take soft and super-soft tyres to the Austrian GP (which returns to the calendar after an 11-year absence) and the German GP, which last year featured soft and medium choices. The British GP and Hungarian GP will both feature the same soft/medium choice as in 2013.
