Rosberg takes pole at Canadian GP in another Mercedes front-row lockout

Mercedes AMG Petronas is the clear frontrunner in the drivers standings, and another front-row lockout should go a long way toward padding its 141-point lead over Red Bull Racing some more. Nico Rosberg won pole position over teammate Lewis Hamilton, making it a total of seven pole positions for Mercedes in as many races so far in the 2014 Formula 1 season. The pole puts the Rosberg-Hamilton head-to-head matchup at 3 wins to 4 in qualifying, although Rosberg is still ahead in the drivers’ standings. The German driver has 122 points to Hamilton’s 118. The next guy? Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso at a distant 61 points. Such has been Mercedes’ dominance in this transitional season…. Continue Reading »

The Mercedes Era is Coming in F1

Mercedes AMG Petronas has proven critics wrong time and time again this season as it continuously ended each race in a one-two finish. The only exception of this is in Australia. But still, it was a Nico Rosberg who reached the finish line first during the kickoff race of the 2014 Formula One season. Lately, pundits forecasted that Monaco was the best track to derail the onslaught of team Mercedes because of its unpredictability over the years. However, it was another one-two finish from Mercedes that stopped all hopes of the other competitors and silenced its doubters. In the recent interview of the team boss Toto Wolff with Mirror, he said… Continue Reading »

Following a rather controversial qualifying race leading to Monaco Grand Prix, Nico Rosberg reached the checkered flag first this Sunday’s race. His victory allowed him to get back his number-one position in the Formula One drivers’ standings, which was temporarily taken away by his teammate Lewis Hamilton in Spain. The German was able to outlast his Briton teammate by 9.2 seconds as he maintained his advantage over his pole position.

Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe Auctioned for amfAR

Mercedes-Benz definitely does not hold anything back when it comes to innovation, design and in competing with the other big luxury car brands in the market. Recently, it has been showing its dominance in the Formula One circuit too. However, Mercedes is always more than willing to help the needy when it counts most. For example, when the typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines last year, its parent company, Daimler, was quick to donate €500,000 to help the relief operations of the country. Presently, to further strengthen the efforts of amfAR, a foundation dedicated to AIDS research, a Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe will be auctioned for its benefit. The car will be… Continue Reading »

Will Team Mercedes Conquer Monaco

Despite the barrage of victories that the Formula One team of Mercedes AMG Petronas has since the Australian Grand Prix all the way to the Spanish Grand Prix, critics are still questioning whether Lewis Hamilton or Nico Rosberg will maintain their performance in Monaco.

They cited as examples the one-time victories incurred by Jarnu Turlli in 2004 and Olivier Panis in 1996. It should be noted that each driver mentioned only claimed one victory in his overall career in F1,… Continue Reading »

According to Rosberg in his interview with BBC, the add-on failed to produce the desired results, so they will have to explore other alternatives…. Continue Reading »
