Hamilton 5th, Rosberg 7th in 2013 Korean Grand Prix

It was another solid outing for the Mercedes F1 team. Solid, but most definitely not stellar.

The finish secures a bunch more important points for the team, yet it underscores the inability of the team to consistently get superb performance out of the car. At least, it hasn’t been enough to really grab some more wins. Tire wear has reared its ugly head, with Hamilton suffering from it on his right front one, right in his second stint after a stop. Rosberg, on the other hand, had… Continue Reading »
