F1: Rosberg tops qualifying at European Grand Prix; Hamilton to start in P10

Nico Rosberg should be feeling a bit better now. The points leader so far in the 2016 Formula One season has had his lead slashed from 43 down to just nine, but he will get a boost at the European Grand Prix after qualifying in pole position. What’s more, his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton ran into problems and hit a wall in Q3, resulting in a red flag for the session and a P10 start for Hamilton. This was after Hamilton made light of the difficulties that drivers were pointing out about the new street circuit in Baku. He had the right to up until FP3, though, posting dominating times. But… Continue Reading »

F1: Hamilton holds off Vettel to win Canadian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton prevailed for the second straight race, taking a relatively hard-fought victory at the 2016 Canadian Grand Prix after fending off the vastly improved Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel. Vettel took the lead with a great start to the race from P3. He went past the two Mercedes, who had a bit of contact exiting turn 1, with Nico Rosberg forced to go to the grass and Hamilton aggressively defending the inside. Hamilton said he thought the start would be ‘a breeze’ after a perfect practice start. “But when it came around for real it felt like I was going nowhere, so I need to figure out what happened there,” Hamilton said. “I… Continue Reading »

F1: Hamilton finally wins one in Monaco

Lewis Hamilton finally managed to win a race in the 2016 Formula One season, with a solid victory ahead of Daniel Ricciardo at the Monaco Grand Prix. This was an exceptionally important outing for Hamilton after his fateful crash with teammate Nico Rosberg at the opening lap of the previous race. Hamilton was able to hold on to the first spot thanks in part to a pit stop blunder by Red Bull in lap 33, with the pit crew apparently not ready to receive Ricciardo and thus costing the driver a considerable amount of time. The other Mercedes car of Nico Rosberg, who was earlier ordered to let Hamilton pass through, could… Continue Reading »

Well, that escalated quickly. Lap one of the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix saw a Mercedes on Mercedes crash, taking out the top two contenders in the season so far.

What Lewis Hamilton has to do to win the Spanish Grand Prix

So far in 2016, Lewis Hamilton has not had much luck. The defending Formula One drivers champion hasn’t won a race in four tries, struggling with reliability issues on his F1 W07 Hybrid multiple times. In the free practices leading up to qualifying, the car issues continued until the team decided to go with a setup that’s closer to Nico Rosberg’s–and guess what, Hamilton took pole position (the 52nd of his career and third this season) to start the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix ahead of the pack. Now, what does the Brit have to do to win the race? Get a good start “If you want to change things pole is… Continue Reading »

Mercedes gets one-two as Rosberg keeps rolling in Russian GP

It’s looking more and more like Nico Rosberg’s year, as the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 driver took home the victory for the fourth straight race this 2016 F1 season. Teammate Lewis Hamilton took advantage of an early appearance by the safety car to move from P10 in the starting grid to a second-place finish, giving the team its second one-two finish this year so far. Kimi Raikkonen took the final podium spot, but the Ferrari just did not have the pace to challenge the Mercedes cars in this one. The red cars’ efforts were also hampered early on after Sebastian Vettel was bumped from behind by Daniil Kvyat not once but twice,… Continue Reading »
