Hamilton wins 2017 British Grand Prix to tie record

Lewis Hamilton won the 2017 British Grand Prix for a record-tying fifth time as Ferrari met with bad luck at the end of the race, helping the Mercedes driver close in considerably on Sebastian Vettel’s lead in the points. Hamilton is now only 1 point behind Vettel, thanks mainly to a race in which he went unchallenged, and also in part to a front left tyre issue that held back the Ferrari driver with just one lap remaining. Kimi Raikkonen suffered the same fate a few laps earlier and was forced to enter the pits.

Valtteri Bottas won the 2017 Austrian GP from pole position, holding off a late-race surge from Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel to ensure that Mercedes would win the race this time.

Bottas 2nd while Hamilton struggles in Azerbaijan GP

The Azerbaijan GP was certainly a very wild and chaotic race. Valtteri Bottas drove his Mercedes to second place right at the last possible moment heading into the chequered flag, ahead of Lance Stroll’s Williams car and behind the race winner, Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo.

It was a fitting finish to the very wild race which saw yellow flags, a red flag, and a lot of contact between cars. It was surely disappointing to lose second place for Stroll, but Williams can’t be that sad about achieving the team’s first podium this season…. Continue Reading »
