In the round-up: An appearance by Hamilton at the Red Bull motorhome fuels speculation.
Top F1 links from the past 24 hours:
“A meeting between Lewis Hamilton and Christian Horner, the Red Bull team principal, will further fuel speculation concerning the British driver’s unsettled state of mind.”
David Coulthard: “Do I think Lewis is a liability to other drivers? Not for one minute.”
“If the marshals at the Montreal circuit yesterday had indeed been practising their technique, then it didn’t exactly go to plan when they had to clean up the remains of Nick Heidfeld’s nose cone during the Canadian Grand Prix.”
“[Steve] Nielsen has been with the team for more than 10 years but tendered his resignation over the weekend of the Spanish Grand Prix when he discovered that John Wickham, formerly the technical and operations manager of A1GP, had been commissioned to conduct an efficiency study into the team.”

On this day in F1
