Current Red Bull driver Ricciardo is out of contract at the end of this season. It was expected to be done before the start of the current campaign, but it has dragged on with the season now five races old.

"The cool thing about being a world champion is the team listen to what you say and they go away and focus on those areas, and it's an wonderful process you do together and then you come back and it works".

With the excitement of the first four races of the 2018 Formula 1 season offered, it would be in Catalunya where the world witnessed the dominant form of Mercedes-AMG get back in action.

The Finn has been unfortunate to not add to his tally of three career victories achieved in his debut season for the Silver Arrows a year ago, with three second-placed finishes recorded in the first five races.

Lewis Hamilton enjoyed a comfortable win in the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona on Sunday to move 17 points clear at the top of the drivers' championship. Bottas had come to within DRS range of the German but had, disappointingly to some, not attempted to overtake the four-time World Champion. They later pitted one after the other giving back the lead to the Briton.

Christina Aguilera Didn't Quit The Voice Because of Gwen Stefani
The powerhouse singers collaborated on Aguilera's newest track, which was released on Wednesday, and it's pretty empowering. The new song is off of Christina's upcoming album Liberation , which will be released on June 15.

"The day didn't quite go according to our plan, Valtteri lost a place to Vettel off the line and whilst he had good pace, it's very hard to overtake here and on tyres of the same age we couldn't get close to a passing position", Shovlin explained.

"In the following races, we struggled in many areas and all that adds up and was in all our minds". The tyres changed and maybe that suited others better than us.

"We investigated the reason why we had this blistering, and to be sure that the track surface played the biggest role and not maybe the new cars or the new compounds we had to wait until Melbourne", said Isola. "Finalising a contract takes time and we both chose to park it".

"But it's nearly all sorted and we will pick it up at the right time".

Meanwhile, despite Hamilton being confirmed for the 2019 season, there remains a question mark on his teammate for next season.

Toto Wolff has opened the door to Daniel Ricciardo at Mercedes. He took the pole position for the race and paced the entire field, including his teammate Valtteri Bottas, who finished more 20 seconds to the rear of him.

The Mercedes driver used supersoft Pirellis for his nest time after he and Ferrari's Antonio Giovinazzi swapped places several times in the hour before lunch.

But the Austrian told Auto Bild: "I was not translated correctly". So I think I've learned from those.

Mercedes have offered an explanation for the delay in signing a fresh contract with Lewis Hamilton by saying both parties wanted to focus on improving the Formula One team's auto.

"Today's programme had a bit of a slow start as we were checking and testing various things", said Vandoorne, "but in general it's been quite positive".

The Austrian said: "Valtteri deserved to win in Baku and could even have won the last two. It is very balanced between him and Lewis at the moment", the Austrian explained.
