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 »

Wolff: F1 Rule Change Talk is Absurd

Toto Wolff recently spoke his mind about the reactions of Red Bull and Ferrari about the rule change in Formula One, particularly the matter on the fuel-flow limit. According to BBC Sport, The Mercedes Team boss said that the appeal of the two teams to further tweak the F1 rules is “absurd”, and that “rules are rules”. He added that if there is a need to change the rules again in F1, the proper time to do that would be for next year, not while the season is already underway.

So, far the team has been victorious in the first two races of the season. Not only that, it has displayed its superiority in an impressive fashion.

F1: No need to replace Hamilton’s engine for Malaysian GP

The inaugural race of the 2014 Formula One season ended in a resounding victory for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team thanks to Nico Rosberg, but Lewis Hamilton had to shut off his engine prematurely to make it a bittersweet opener in Melbourne. There’s good news, however, as it’s been confirmed that the Brit doesn’t need a change of engine this early in the season. Under the new rules, each driver is only allocated five engines (or Power Units, to be more precise as that’s what the new engines are supposed to be called because we refer to the entire system comprised of the engine, turbo, and energy recovery system as one unit)… Continue Reading »
