Mercedes third and fourth at Hungarian Grand Prix

Mercedes AMG Petronas was able to secure another podium at the very least at the Hungarian Grand Prix, with Lewis Hamilton finishing in third place. Nico Rosberg, meanwhile, finished fourth as Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo won his second GP of the season and maintained his status as the only other driver apart from Mercedes drivers to win a race in 2014. Adding a bit of drama to the race was a particular moment near the end of the race in which the team asked Hamilton to let his teammate pass–and understandably so. Hamilton drove a hell of a race, starting from the pit lane and working his way up the field…. Continue Reading »

Rosberg wins 2014 German Grand Prix

Nico Rosberg was true to form Sunday, as the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 driver secured his first-ever home race win and his fourth overall this season by taking the victory at the Hockenheimring. Teammate Lewis Hamilton was able to climb up all the way from P20 to start the race and vaulted up to a stellar and well-deserved podium finish. Sandwiched between the two Mercedes drivers was the Williams of Valtteri Bottas, who took his third-straight podium finish and his second-straight number-two finish following a stellar British Grand Prix and his impressive P3 in Austria. Despite the very impressive race driven by Hamilton, the Brit was seemingly not impressed. After all, anything… Continue Reading »

Rosberg wins pole position in German GP as Hamilton ends stint in Q1

It was a bittersweet qualifying session for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team at its home race, the German Grand Prix. Nico Rosberg was able to secure yet another pole position — his fifth of the season, and the team’s ninth overall out of ten races so far — while Lewis Hamilton had a brake disc failure during Q1, forcing him to end his session right there as the failure sent him spinning into a wall in Hockenheim. Hamilton’s time was good enough for Q2, but since he was not able to get a run in, he only qualifies at P16 on the grid. With Sauber’s Esteban Gutiérrez (P14 down to P17) getting docked three… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton wins British GP for Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton won the 2014 British Grand Prix, giving the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team its eighth victory in nine races so far this season. It was also Hamilton’s fifth win this year and, coupled with the retirement in the race of teammate Nico Rosberg, allowed the Brit to get that much closer to the drivers’ standings lead. Despite retiring on lap 29 and thus scoring no championship points, Rosberg is still ahead of the drivers’ standings with an idle 165 points. However, Hamilton only trails by a mere four points now. Gearbox problems prevented Rosberg from completing more than half the duration of the British GP. It also equalises the number of retirements for… Continue Reading »

Rosberg wins pole position in 2014 British GP

Nico Rosberg gets right back in the saddle with his fourth pole position of the season, as the Mercedes AMG Petronas driver opens the 2014 British Grand Prix at the head of the pack. Teammate Lewis Hamilton settles for P6 on the grid after a trickier-than-usual qualifying session that had rain and rapidly changing conditions out on the track. “It’s a great opportunity to start the race from pole and I’ll give it everything to take the win tomorrow,” said Rosberg, who is atop the drivers’ standings, with 165 championship points ahead of Hamilton, who has 136. Hamilton acknowledged that it was his decision to pull out of his lap in Q3,… Continue Reading »
