Ralf: Expert on number twos

Former F1 driver Ralf “Not-the-seven-time-world-champion” Schumacher, believes Ferrari has already put all its eggs in Kimi Raikkonen’s basket, despite Felipe Massa’s recent form.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild, the now DTM driver pointed out regardless what the Italian team professes, Ferrari has a long history of playing favorites, and now is no different.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, however, McLaren’s Heikki Kovalainen believes it would be a mistake not to keep an eye on the Brazilian’s challenge, saying to do otherwise would be “stupid.”

Renault on the YouTubes

Next time you get that between-race-weekend need for seeing Fernando Alonso looking glum about the performance of his R28, you can tune in to Renault’s brand new YouTube channel.

Renault has launched the channel to gain wider exposure for the squad. Fifteen videos are already available, and as always, the user will find all the functionality one would expect from YouTube.

Renault isn’t first (sound familiar?), the French team follows Ferrari into the world of YouTube.

Hamilton pleads not to be given preferential treatment

Heading into the Monaco Grand Prix with a 14-point lead on his teammate, Lewis Hamilton has asked McLaren to maintain equality between its two drivers.

Hamilton was perhaps thinking of the rift which developed with Fernando Alonso during his rookie season when he -- Lewis -- was asked to back off and support the then world champion’s title run in the streets of Monte Carlo.

The Briton said if he can’t win the race, he prefers Heikki Kovalainen does, according to Sky.

Young Lewis exhibiting the "maturity" of his...er...year, I suppose. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
