Hello and welcome to F1 News Today with Tillie! 

Right, let’s take a look at what’s making news in the world of Formula 1 today…

Oh sis, I don’t know about you, but I’m still absolutely gutted for Lando!!

He’s still in his feelings too, telling ESPN…

“Obviously unhappy… devastated in a way…” 

“I guess we made a call to stay out and we stand by that call, of course, it was the wrong one at the end!!

“I made the decision as much as the team… 

“More they thought I should box and I decided to stay out!

“My decision, I thought it was the way to go…”

“I had the confidence beforehand…

“I’ve felt capable of doing it for a while, but just a bit of heartbreak you know…

“I felt like I did everything I could even when it got tricky!

“I made a couple of mistakes and still kept Lewis behind me… 

“The laps I was out, before Lewis boxed, it was perfectly fine for the tyres I was on…

“I got told the rain would be the same amount, but it obviously got a lot wetter than we as a team expected!”

Chin up Lando, everyone in F1 wants to give you a big hug…

From tears to cheers now…

Red Bull boss Christian Horner feels as if Max Verstappen’s second-place finish in Russia was like a victory, saying…

“Today was like a victory for us…

“To come from 20th on the grid to second, I think if anybody had offered us that… we would have bitten your arm off.”

“Max got the call right to go on the inters and it worked out well for him!”  

“The rain the last five laps came at the right time…”

“To come away from two Mercedes strongholds with only a two-point deficit in the drivers’ championship is hugely encouraging!

“I don’t think there’s any circuit that stands out as strongly as Russia and Monza for Mercedes… 

“You could say it’s 50-50 in what’s left on the table!”

Looking across the pit lane, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff would most likely agree with Christian Horner that the battle is fifty fifty, which is much too close for comfort for Wolff, who looking ahead to the Turkish Grand Prix, said…

“I think neither driver or team can have any comfort in the current situation because there is just no gap in terms of points…”

“I’ve stopped trying to anticipate whether Turkey is a historically strong race for us or not because with the new regulation everything has changed so much!”

“But definitely, we knew that Monza and Sochi would be coming more towards us and the reality is that we are where we are…”

An unusually downbeat Wolff went on to talk about an impending engine change for Lewis Hamilton, which would see the 7-time champion have to start from the back of the grid…

On the engine situation, Wolff said…

“We are in a phase of assessment how to continue this season in terms of power units…”

“Reliability versus performance is always the fine line that you need to get right!”

“Nobody, neither us nor our competitors, can afford a zero-point race weekend…”

Well that concludes this episode of F1 News Today with Tillie. 

We’re definitely approaching squeaky bum time in the 2021 Formula 1 season, aren’t we?
