F1: Malaysian GP qualifying – Mercedes’ Hamilton takes pole; Rosberg in P3

Don’t look now, but Ferrari’s trying to spoil the party. Lewis Hamilton will start the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday in pole position, after edging out Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg took P3 on the starting grid after a rainy qualifying session. The three Q3 times for the top 3 qualifiers were close: Hamilton posted 1:49.834, Vettel 1:49.908, and Rosberg 1:50.299. Hamilton actually set that time on his initial flying lap and never actually got to improve it, allowing Vettel to edge a bit too close for comfort. In the end, though, Hamilton was able to clinch his 40th career F1 pole position. Meanwhile, surrendering P2 to the Ferrari means ending a… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton Reacts to Engine Equalization Proposals

Lewis Hamilton appeared to be in high spirits lately. Well, if you had the World Championship in your current record plus a perfect start in the 2015 season, who wouldn’t be? But of course, being on top of the game would always give you that big bullseye on your back from rivaling drivers, competing teams and critics. One of the major issues raised by competitors (a special mention to Red Bull) is that the dominance of Mercedes-AMG Petronas in Formula One since last year has made the races boring. Thus, there have been calls for engine equalization to get the competition closer. According to Hamilton, going through the engine equalization right now would be… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton Vows to Set Another Record in Formula One

F1: Mercedes opens 2015 season in front row at Australian GP

Lewis Hamilton will be opening his title defense in pole position as the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team claimed its first front-row lockout after Saturday’s qualifying session for the Australian Grand Prix. The 2014 drivers champion relatively easily beat out teammate Nico Rosberg, 1:26.327 to 1:26.921, in action reminiscent of the majority of last season’s give and take between the two in-team rivals. Behind the Mercedes cars, other teams were close in Q3. Felipe Massa (1:27.718) continued where he left off in 2014 with a great qualifying to start the new season. His Williams will start in P3, followed by the Ferrari cars. New Scuderia driver Sebastian Vettel looks like he’s back in form after a change… Continue Reading »
