F1: Epic crash knocks out both Mercedes cars in lap 1 of Spanish Grand Prix

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. This paved the way for Red Bull’s Max Verstappen to be the youngest race winner in Formula One history.  Right after the start, Hamilton was able to get ahead of Rosberg but the German managed to snag back the lead by turn 3. Then, the proverbial sh-t hit the fan on the lead-up to turn 4. Check out the crash below; the carnage starts at around the 22-second mark of the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcTeQA2CM_4 Well, it’s going to be hard to say because both… Continue Reading »

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 »

F1: Mercedes’ Rosberg wins Bahrain Grand Prix

Nico Rosberg has now won five straight GPs, including the first two in the 2016 Formula One season.

He dropped all the way to P9 after getting tangled with the Williams of Valtteri Bottas right on turn 1. While he fought valiantly to recover enough and get third, the damage was too much to overcome and Rosberg coasted all the way to the race win…. Continue Reading »
