British Grand Prix: Hamilton qualifies in pole ahead of Mercedes front row

Add one more Mercedes front-row qualification to this year’s list. Lewis Hamilton drove a superb qualifying at the British Grand Prix as he edged out Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg for pole position. Hamilton posted a time of 1:29.287, around a third of a second better than Rosberg’s, for his third-straight pole and his sixth overall this season. It is the 55th pole of his career, and his fourth at Silverstone. Rosberg also escaped being slapped a penalty after stewards cleared him of any fault after he drove too slowly at one point during qualifying. This allows Mercedes to keep its fifth front-row lockout of the season. Hamilton was especially appreciative of the… Continue Reading »

F1: Hamilton, Rosberg could face suspensions for future collisions

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are locked in a tight battle for the 2016 Formula One driver’s championship, and it doesn’t help one bit that they are teammates. Competition between the two have led to some ugly crashes and unnecessary contact in the past, and now the two could face fines or even suspensions from Mercedes if they are to collide in a race again. This is seen as a way for the team to avoid actually issuing team orders. With contact between the Mercedes cars in three out of the past five outings, team officials are now forced to act to prevent excessive competition between their drivers from sabotaging their… Continue Reading »

Hamilton wins 2016 Austrain GP; Rosberg finishes 4th for Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton took home the victory at the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix, fending off Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen. He has now won his third race out of the last four, cutting into the points lead of Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg once again. At the final lap, Rosberg was still actually in a position to win until he ran wide as he exited from turn 1. Hamilton pounced at the opportunity, but not after the two cars made contact. Rosberg had sparks coming out of his Mercedes, and he was visibly slowed down. Lewis passed him soon after and went on to the chequered flag. Rosberg was slapped with a 10-second penalty… Continue Reading »

F1: Rosberg wins European GP; Hamilton finishes fifth for Mercedes

Mercedes AMG Petronas driver Nico Rosberg was able to pad his lead a bit after seeing it evaporate in the past few races. The point leader took home the win at the European Grand Prix, scoring the maiden victory at F1’s newest track at the Baku City Circuit in Azerbaijan. Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari secured second spot, while the final podium slot was taken by Force India’s Sergio Perez, who recovered from a gearbox-change five-place grid penalty after posting the second-fastest qualifying time. The other Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton managed to go from a P10 start to a fifth-place finish, but it could’ve been higher had it not been for the… Continue Reading »

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 »
