Daniel Ricciardo, who got confirmed as Mark Webber’s replacement in Red Bull Racing for the 2014 Formula1 Season, believed that ‘hips’ may just be an issue for him when he would sit in one of the compact Adrian Newey designed race cars!

And amidst Ricciardo’s news, we also have the 2013 Italian Grand Prix coming up this weekend, at the historic Monza. After a month of no racing action, it is only fair to reward fans with races in Spa and Monza. Although I hope that this weekend’s race isn’t as boring as the 2013 Belgian Grand Prix.
