F1: Rosberg upsets Hamilton to win 2015 Monaco GP

Nico Rosberg claimed his third-straight Monaco Grand Prix victory, after a questionable decision to pit Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton’s car when the safety car went out caused the latter to re-enter the race in third, putting the Briton’s dominating weekend to waste. This marks the second consecutive race win for Rosberg, while the team is now six out of six when it comes to getting both drivers to finish on the podium. Hamilton had once again built up a considerable gap from out in front, at least for a good first 64 laps until Max Verstappen’s accident prompted the safety car to come out. It was then that the decision was… Continue Reading »


New Contract of Lewis Hamilton Could Be Worth £120 Million

Lewis Hamilton may be on his way to finally sealing a new contract with his team. The Daily Mail claimed it might be what the Mercedes-AMG Petronas driver and reigning World Champion in Formula One meant when he said, “I will have some news for you in Monaco,” after last Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix. If the story is true, then it could signal the end of Hamilton’s excruciating contract negotiations, which he stated earlier as “A pain in the back side.” It should be noted that the champ was the one personally overseeing his contract negotiations after he ended his association with Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment. Hamilton was the one… Continue Reading »


Rosberg wins 2015 Spanish GP at head of Mercedes one-two

Nico Rosberg finally got the kind of start that he wanted and rode it all the way to victory at the 2015 Spanish Grand Prix, where the Mercedes driver helped lead his team to another one-two finish, but this time, the German driver managed to get ahead of teammate Lewis Hamilton. With the win, Rosberg has now cut some of his teammate’s lead in the drivers’ standings, now just at 20 points (91 to 111). Hamilton immediately went over to Rosberg to hug and congratulate his teammate after the race was done. “It was a perfect weekend – being on pole and winning the race,” said Rosberg, whose last win came at the… Continue Reading »


Rob Smedly is Sure that Mercedes is Playing Fair with Its Clients in F1

Rob Smedly, the Head of Vehicle Performance at the Williams team in Formula One,  said he remains confident that Mercedes is providing them the best engine the automaker has to offer. He made the comment after their driver Felipe Massa cast doubt on the integrity of their power unit supplier. It should be recalled that Massa suggested Mercedes might not be providing them with the same configuration in their power unit. The Williams driver uttered such claim at the start of the F1 season this year. Smedly pointed out that Williams’ speeds at the qualifying and the actual races possessed the same offsets with Mercedes-AMG Petronas as well as the other customers of the three-pointed… Continue Reading »


F1: Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton wins Bahrain Grand Prix; Rosberg takes third place

Lewis Hamilton continues to dominate the 2015 Formula One season, taking his third race win in the first four races after cruising to victory at the 2015 Bahrain Grand Prix. Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg was on pace to give the team a one-two finish, but lost P2 with one lap to go after a mistake that led to Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen taking second place. Raikkonen drove with great pace late in the race. In lap 56, Rosberg ran wide and Raikkonen took advantage to take P2 for another great finish by the Ferrari team. By the time the Ferrari driver reached the chequered flag, he was only some 3.3 seconds behind Hamilton. “The Ferraris… Continue Reading »


Mercedes lessons at the 2015 Chinese Grand Prix

The Chinese Grand Prix continues to be kind to Lewis Hamilton, as the Mercedes driver took the victory in this year’s race ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg. Here are some points that were evident with the race and the outcome. Lewis Hamilton cruised but still showed speed where it counted Hamilton recorded a Grand Chelem (or Grand Slam) at the 2015 Chinese Grand Prix, which means he took pole position in qualifying, recorded the race’s fastest lap, and won while leading from the opening lap up until the end of race. This was Hamilton’s second such feat, after tallying one at last year’s Malaysian Grand Prix. While Ferrari had great pace, they couldn’t offset… Continue Reading »
