Fernando Alonso reveals six Red Bull offers

Red Bull powerbroker Helmut Marko has accused Daniel Ricciardo of misleading the organisation about his future

Marko said he suspected Ricciardo's decision to leave after 10 years with Red Bull and Toro Rosso could only be as a result of the money Renault was able to offer - or the uncertainty surrounding Red Bull's move to Honda power units from next year.

Red Bull chose to hire Pierre Gasly from Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda to join Max Verstappen in the team next year.

Meanwhile, the Force India Formula One team will race in this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix as a new mid-season entry stripped of 2018 constructors' championship points, the FIA governing body said on Thursday.

However, the gap to the top three teams - Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull - remains a large one.

"To be honest I don't know the plan yet 100 percent", Ticktum said at Sugo in May when questioned about his 2019 plans.

"I think everybody here wants to win races or wants to win championships but sometimes it's not like that and you have to really be patient and work hard for it and you need the whole package together".

But ESPN is reporting that a source close to Ricciardo has denied Marko's claims, saying a deal was put forward and an agreement was close, but he never accepted a new contract from Red Bull.

"What they've done in the last two years encouraged me and developments made at the factory and what they are doing with their finances, where they are spending and the way they are doing it, showed me they want to win and try to get there as soon as possible". "He was a little bit disappointed I was moving on". Winning next year is still unlikely but I think the process over the course of the next 12-18 months will be quite good and encouraging.

"But it was the best I could do so I called Christian (Horner)".

"But the third time he told me I realised it for was real. It was a very unusual situation anyhow", stated Marko while speaking to Austrian broadcaster Servus TV.

He added: "I never said I was unloved [at Red Bull], that wasn't the case".

Manafort juror said one holdout 'exasperated' others with her logic
He also faces additional charges in a separate trial in federal court next month in the District of Columbia. There, she said she "did not want Paul Manafort to be guilty", but called the evidence "overwhelming".

Clearly offended by these remarks, Alonso said: "I had a couple of offers from Red Bull".

"To be clear, there was no falling out, no bad blood with anyone in the team, with the bosses, or anyone at all", Ricciardo said.

"Once I made that decision and pulled the trigger I felt comfortable with it and it feels right for next year".

"I've been pretty stressed all year, and now life feels pretty stress-free".

"In Hungary, he said to both me and Mr. Mateschitz that everything fits, and he'll sign on Tuesday at the test".

"There was back and forth over the last few months".

"There were a lot of emotions as well and I was just so shocked".

"And the F1 we're seeing now was maybe not the F1 I dreamed of as a kid or when I joined in 2001".

"We were always going to draw on the talent pool that we have".

From next season the pilot of Red Bull and partner max Verstappen will become the Frenchman Pierre Slogan.
