Mercedes F1: Hamilton wins United States Grand Prix ahead of Rosberg

Can Lewis Hamilton hold off Nico Rosberg? Based on how he dominated his Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 teammate at the United States Grand Prix, the answer is: he most certainly can. Hamilton was fairly outpaced by Rosberg during the qualifying session for the race, but the Brit had no problems taking care of the race proper. He took the chequered flag 4.3 seconds ahead of his teammate, and more than 25 seconds ahead of third-placer Daniel Ricciardo.

Mercedes’ Hamilton wins short-lived Japanese Grand Prix; Rosberg second in race marred by Bianchi crash

Mercedes AMG Petronas’ Lewis Hamilton took the victory as the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix ended prematurely, allowing the Brit to extend his lead over teammate Nico Rosberg, who started on pole but had to settle for second place. The race had to be ended early and the results backdated after a serious crash involving Jules Bianchi of Marussia and a JCB recovery vehicle, which was attending to an incident from the previous lap. “My thoughts are with my colleague,” Rosberg said. “They have given us some information and it seems very, very serious.” Typhoon Phanfone made its mark on the race early on, with standing water accumulating on the track and water splashing… Continue Reading »

Rosberg claims pole in Japanese Grand Prix; Mercedes with another front-row lockout

Another qualifying session, another front-row lockout for Mercedes AMG Petronas. Nico Rosberg won the right to start at the front of the grid when the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix starts, while Lewis Hamilton qualified in second place to make sure that no one apart from the Mercedes cars would lead the pack for the fourth straight race. The pole position is Rosberg’s 12th for his career, and this puts him in a tie at 30th place on the all-time list with Gerhard Berger and David Coulthard. Meanwhile, this means Hamilton gets his 68th career start on the front row, and his 11th in the current season. Mercedes takes its 14th pole position and… Continue Reading »

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 »
