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.

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 »
