Rosberg wins 2014 German Grand Prix

Nico Rosberg was true to form Sunday, as the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 driver secured his first-ever home race win and his fourth overall this season by taking the victory at the Hockenheimring. Teammate Lewis Hamilton was able to climb up all the way from P20 to start the race and vaulted up to a stellar and well-deserved podium finish. Sandwiched between the two Mercedes drivers was the Williams of Valtteri Bottas, who took his third-straight podium finish and his second-straight number-two finish following a stellar British Grand Prix and his impressive P3 in Austria. Despite the very impressive race driven by Hamilton, the Brit was seemingly not impressed. After all, anything… Continue Reading »

Rosberg wins pole position in German GP as Hamilton ends stint in Q1

It was a bittersweet qualifying session for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team at its home race, the German Grand Prix. Nico Rosberg was able to secure yet another pole position — his fifth of the season, and the team’s ninth overall out of ten races so far — while Lewis Hamilton had a brake disc failure during Q1, forcing him to end his session right there as the failure sent him spinning into a wall in Hockenheim. Hamilton’s time was good enough for Q2, but since he was not able to get a run in, he only qualifies at P16 on the grid. With Sauber’s Esteban Gutiérrez (P14 down to P17) getting docked three… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton wins 2014 Spanish GP and headlines another 1-2 finish

Another race, another Mercedes one-two finish, and the tension is mounting for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 teammates. Lewis Hamilton shook off the challenge from Nico Rosberg and held on to win the 2014 Spanish Grand Prix. As the race wound down to a close, the two teammates were silent right before the post-race interviews. With the win, Hamilton takes over the top spot in the drivers’ standings, with 100 points to Rosberg’s 97. Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull Racing took the final podium spot, while his teammate and 3-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel jumped up from P15 at the start of the race all the way to fourth place by the time the… Continue Reading »

Mercedes AMG Petronas front row to start Spanish Grand Prix

In what is starting to be a repetitive result, the Mercedes AMG Petronas cars once again took the top two spots in a qualifying session. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will take the front row when the 2014 Spanish Grand Prix starts in several hours, and it should be yet another exciting battle for the two frontrunners so far this season. This is Hamilton’s fourth pole (out of five races) this season, and we’ll see if he can make it his fourth victory as well once the race proper rolls around. Rosberg actually was the fastest guy at the Circuit de Catalunya for the first two rounds of qualifying, but Hamilton… Continue Reading »

Hamilton takes pole for Mercedes AMG Petronas at Malaysian GP

Heading into the Malaysian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was focused on one thing: get his title bid back on track, in order to put the disappointment of what happened at the Australian GP behind him. He was certainly in top form at the qualifying session, earning his 33rd overall pole position and second out of two races so far this 2014 F1 season. Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, who is sitting at the top of the standings after his win in Melbourne, qualified for the third position on the grid. Despite the variably wet conditions at the Sepang International Circuit, the Mercedes cars — early favorites in this season of transition… Continue Reading »

F1: No need to replace Hamilton’s engine for Malaysian GP

The inaugural race of the 2014 Formula One season ended in a resounding victory for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team thanks to Nico Rosberg, but Lewis Hamilton had to shut off his engine prematurely to make it a bittersweet opener in Melbourne. There’s good news, however, as it’s been confirmed that the Brit doesn’t need a change of engine this early in the season. Under the new rules, each driver is only allocated five engines (or Power Units, to be more precise as that’s what the new engines are supposed to be called because we refer to the entire system comprised of the engine, turbo, and energy recovery system as one unit)… Continue Reading »

For a while now, the future of Ross Brawn as the team principal of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team has been up in the air.

This formally sets into motion a transition of leadership roles to Executive Toto Wolff and Executive Technical Director Paddy Lowe, the latter moving from McLaren in the middle of this year. Brawn talked of the right timing, which he said was the biggest consideration as far as his decision was concerned. Given the strength of the team’s executive leadership, it’s not so hard to see why… Continue Reading »
