2014 Chinese Grand Prix – Hamilton takes pole; Rosberg in second row

It’s not the team’s best qualifying session so far in this young Formula One season, but Mercedes AMG Petronas will definitely take a pole position for Lewis Hamilton and a P4 start for Nico Rosberg, especially during a fairly wet and contested qualifying round at the 2014 Chinese Grand Prix. This markes Hamilton’s eighth pole position as a member of the Mercedes F1 team, but more importantly, it was his 34th overall pole, giving him the all-time record for a British driver. With wet conditions to start with, the Mercedes drivers went out on their wet tyres off the bat in Q1, with the intermediates being used for the next… Continue Reading »

How the New Engine Regulations Saved Team Mercedes in F1

Sir John Young “Jackie” Stewart wasn’t kidding last year when he said that if Team Mercedes fails to bring in the desired results in Formula One—that is gaining a significant position in the rankings—Daimler would not think twice of scrapping the F1 team of Mercedes AMG Petronas. A recent report from BBC Sport confirmed that the adoption of the new turbo hybrid engines was the saving grace of team Mercedes. According to the source’s interview with Dr. Thomas Weber, board member and the head of research and development at Daimler, the implementation of engine regulations in F1 and the performance shown by team Mercedes’ drivers justified the continued existence of the… Continue Reading »

Hamilton and Rosberg were Allowed to Race Each Other in Bahrain

It was recently revealed that Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were allowed to race other during the Grand Prix held in Bahrain. In an article from BBC Sport, it appeared that Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe were also entertaining themselves with the on-track rivalry of Hamilton and Rosberg. As a result, they did not give the two team orders during the event. That means everything we’ve seen in the last race were two drivers giving their best to outlast one another and their performances were not in any way cooked up by the team. Lowe stated in his interview with the source that there’s no reason not to allow Hamilton… Continue Reading »

Mercedes’ Hamilton prevails in duel with Rosberg at the 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix

One second was the difference between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg in a duel of the two Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 drivers at the 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix. It looks increasingly likely that we will see more of this head-to-head battle between the two teammates, but Mercedes has to be happy with the team’s second one-two finish in as many races. The win catapulted Mercedes into a 67-point lead at the top of the constructor’s championship, with Force India second and McLaren third. Sergio Perez took the third podium spot, finishing 23 seconds behind Rosberg. “I was on a real knife edge at the end,” said Hamilton after the race…. Continue Reading »

Team Mercedes Has Not Shown Its Full Potential in F1 Yet

Team Mercedes may be sandbagging in the races. This was stated by Will Gray in his recent article in Yahoo! Sport. According to the Eurosport expert of Yahoo!, we should not be fooled by the narrow time difference between Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel at the end of the Formula One race in Sepang. He claimed that Mercedes was not even close to demonstrating its full potential this season. The fuel efficiency of the team was also nothing short of remarkable during the previous races. Basically, Gray was echoing the same observation of other F1 experts and fans who were watching closely in the race. We can say that Mercedes… Continue Reading »

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.
