News gist daily keeps you up to date with all the latest stories and developments from the world of F1.
The Formula One season is just around the corner and there are plenty of talking points already after Lewis Hamilton’s surprise move to Ferrari and the ongoing investigation into Red Bull team principal Christian Horner. The 50-year-old is set to be present when the team unveil their RB20 car for the 2024 campaign.

Drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez are likely to be quizzed over Horner after Friday’s hearing did not end with a resolution and it could still take several weeks before an outcome is reached.

Red Bull are showing off their new livery after rivals Mercedes and Ferrari, with Hamilton discussing the vehicle he will use in his final season with the Silver Arrows before leaving to link up with Charles Leclerc and Frederic Vasseur.
Jenson Button dismisses Max Verstappen theory
Jenson Button has played down the idea that Max Verstappen’s Formula One dominance has made the sport “boring”.

The Dutchman won all but three races last season on his way to a third consecutive title, but the Brit believes the sport is as entertaining as ever.

“We can say this is boring because one guy is winning all the races, [but] last year will go down in history,” Button told the Fueling Around podcast. “I have to say, if you look at the numbers and the results, yeah, it doesn’t look great.

“But I think we had some bloody good racing last year. Not all the races, but we have had some really good racing up and down the field. It wasn’t a walk in the park for Max either.

“I enjoyed the season – sprint races not so much, apart from Brazil, which was amazing. More races in Brazil, please!”
Lando Norris sets sights on Max Verstappen
McLaren driver Lando Norris has insisted that he is looking to usurp Max Verstappen at the top of the standings.

Verstappen cruised to a third consecutive title last season but the Brit believes that he and Red Bull can be stopped.

“If you were to say ‘are they beatable?’, you’re going to have to say ‘yes’,” Norris said. “I think we’re going to want to believe to say yes, because we were very close at certain times – and at certain times we did beat them.

“So the question is, can we beat them over a season? Because I think that’s going to be the challenging thing and I think that’s going to be very difficult to do with how well they’re performing. So [I’m] optimistic. Possible to beat them at certain times? I want to believe so, yeah.
