Mercedes Worried of Mechanical Issues in the Remaining Races

The people behind the Formula One team of Mercedes AMG Petronas admitted that they are worried of mechanical issues arising in the remaining races of the 2014 season.

On the other hand, Nico Rosberg was the latest victim of a breakdown. The forced retirement of Rosberg in Singapore Grand Prix denied him of acquiring any points in that event.

Lewis Hamilton wins Singapore GP, grabs lead in title race from Mercedes teammate

The Singapore Grand Prix could prove to be the turning point in this year’s battle for the drivers’ championship. Lewis Hamilton held off a crowd near the end of the race to claim the victory while grabbing the lead in the standings, thanks largely to his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg failing to finish after many struggles even before the race began. Hamilton managed to get out of a tricky pit stop in lap 51 and avoided a tight battle for the win, especially with two Red Bull Racing cars right in the thick of it. He retakes the lead from Sebastian Vettel by lap 54 thanks to DRS, and eventually cruised to… Continue Reading »

Another front row lockout for Mercedes in 2014 Singapore Grand Prix qualifying

Lewis Hamilton took another pole position at the qualifying session for the 2014 Singapore Grand Prix, clinching his sixth pole of the season and giving Mercedes AMG Petronas its 13th pole in 14 races so far. Joining the Brit on the front row once the race starts tonight is Nico Rosberg, whose qualifying time was only 0.007 seconds short of Hamilton’s. Getting pole position is always a great thing, although it is not a guarantee for victory. It certainly helps, though, especially as Hamilton is still trying to catch Rosberg in the drivers’ championship race. Rosberg leads 238 to 216, with five races left after Singapore. “I lost a lot… Continue Reading »

Pascal Wehrlein, only 19 years of age, will function as a reserve driver for the team starting the next F1 race up to the finals. He will only get to the helm of the W05 if either Rosberg or Hamilton cannot race. The youngster will be balancing his duties in DTM with his role in F1. For the German teen, getting pulled in… Continue Reading »
