Can Nico Rosberg Still Win the 2015 Championship?

All is not yet lost for Nico Rosberg. Mathematically, he could still win the drivers’ title. But with other considerations involved, his chances are quite slim.

That’s 73 points behind the F1 Drivers’ Championship leader and his teammate Lewis Hamilton’s accumulated 302 points so far. With only four races remaining and the double scoring in play, he could still snatch an upset for the championship. However, that would mean Hamilton should score very poorly… Continue Reading »

2015 Belgian Grand Prix qualifying: Lewis Hamilton takes pole for Mercedes; Rosberg P2

Mercedes AMG Petronas was able to get back in the groove with another front-row lockout in qualifying for the 2015 Belgian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton secured his tenth pole position in 11 races so far this season. Teammate Nico Rosberg stayed close until Q3, but was unable to take pole from Hamilton and thus settled for P2. Of course, a good start could see Rosberg right up there with Hamilton to start the race. With Rosberg competitive all weekend, there’s no doubt he’ll give Hamiton a run for his money. This pole also happens to be Hamilton’s sixth straight, and that puts him in a tie with Mika Hakkinen, who set… Continue Reading »
