Is Niki Lauda Leaving the Mercedes F1 Team?

It seems the friction within the Mercedes F1 Team is not only confined between its drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. According to several news sources, there is also a tension between the group’s chief Toto Wolff and non-executive chairman Niki Lauda. Daily Mail‘s Jonathan McEvoy said, “So annoyed was Wolff that Lauda was being interviewed by journalists that he refused to conduct his own customary press conference. The team’s media manager told journalists that Wolff was their sole spokesman and that they should not speak to Lauda. This is ironic, if nothing else, because Lauda works for the German channel RTL during race weekends, offering his views on sundry… Continue Reading »

F1: Rosberg wins 2015 Mexican GP; Mercedes gets 10th 1-2 finish of season

There may have been no point to the race, with the titles all decided already, but Nico Rosberg brought his A game nonetheless. The Mercedes F1 driver took home the trophy in the first Mexican Grand Prix in 23 years, winning the race from pole position while topping teammate and recently crowned Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton.

Mexico GP qualifying: Nico Rosberg heads Mercedes front-row lockout

There’s nothing left to play for, but it’s clear that Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton are still going for victories. The Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 drivers managed their 13th front-row lockout of the season, with Rosberg getting pole position for the 2015 Mexican Grand Prix.

During that instance, Hamilton tossed the podium cap towards Rosberg who was sitting. The German driver responded by throwing it back to his teammate. Hamilton looked like he didn’t respond to it. Then the clip also showed Paddy Lowe… Continue Reading »

Toto Wolff Opposes the Idea of Getting Independent Engine Supplier in F1

Toto Wolff opposed the idea of introducing independent Formula One engine suppliers. According to Autosport, he aired his side after F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone revealed earlier that the FIA will announce a tender process which would encourage independent engine suppliers to enter the sport. The system aims to allow additional power but requiring more fuel consumption. For an engine maker like Mercedes-AMG that is allotting millions of pounds just to develop an engine like the current 1.6-liter turbo V6 power units, the idea is not the way to proceed. He pointed out that engine manufacturers decided to participate in F1 because of the concept, which fits what is happening on the roads. He added, the… Continue Reading »
