Maybe Toro Rosso Made Alonso an Offer - Horner

Ricciardo rejected Red Bull's 'unfair joke'

Red Bull advisor accuses Daniel Ricciardo of deceiving team

Abiteboul also insisted Renault's decision to hire Ricciardo was not motivated by trying to put one over on Red Bull and that there was no last minute push to persuade the Australian to move.

Red Bull subsequently promoted Pierre Gasly from their sister team, Toro Rosso, to partner Max Verstappen next term.

Speaking from the Belgian Grand Prix, Ricciardo explained he wanted "a new challenge" and "fresh motivation".

As has been common for Red Bull, promotion into the vacant seat came from within, and it was 22-year old Frenchman Gasly who got the call. We don't have to a 9-5 job and we're not going to the same office every day but so many years of going to the same factory or whatever, that routine, I felt my enjoyment of the sport was becoming a little bit, I don't know, dulled down, a bit numb at times.

"There's been times when I've thought, "This is why [2016 world champion Nico] Rosberg retired", and he had it a lot more intense than me".

Vice President Mike Pence has been especially outspoken on the Brunson case, particularly before Christian audiences. USA stocks suffered their worst day in seven weeks after the move, and the lira gained 7 percent against the dollar.

"That they can influence a guy like Pierre Gasly I can understand", said Abiteboul. "Fernando is a fantastic driver, but he's obviously chosen his path".

That tells me that it's for now the right decision and I'm comfortable with that.

"It's only his second season so he lacks experience", Dr Helmut Marko told Servus TV.

"I'll go out on a limb and say Red Bull can't be successful if both drivers are instinct/reflex (like Max)", Daly tweeted.

Horner said Alonso's manager Flavio Briatore, a former Renault team boss, had made an enquiry as had Formula One's commercial rights holders Liberty Media about possible interest in the Spaniard.

Air quality to worsen in Northwest as smoke returns
In central Canada, more than three dozen fires are now burning in Ontario, stretching fire crews thin, the report added. While Metro Vancouver's air quality saw a brief reprieve on Friday, August 17th, the smoky haze returned the day after.

One reason why it was so surprising was the rhetoric coming from Ricciardo just a week earlier in Hungary as he suggested a new contract was all-but-certain following Mercedes' confirmation that they would retain Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas for next season.

Ricciardo said he had still been unsure during the Hungarian race weekend at the end of July but made up his mind during the following days.

"I think the challenges are probably bigger than the challenges that I can find here for next year". It's hard to disconnect when you know that there is a seat available in Red Bull but I just tried to enjoy my break.

"Life also taught me in the past how things may change. It was all very calm and respectful, so, it was all I could ask for".

"To be clear, there was no falling out, no bad blood with anyone in the team, the bosses or anyone", he told a news conference ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix on Thursday, adding that it had not been an easy decision to make. "It was not the case for me to join this adventure", said Alonso. He hinted multiple times he was going to recommit with the energy drink team but during the summer break took everyone by surprise when he announced his future was taking a twist.
