British Grand Prix: Hamilton qualifies in pole ahead of Mercedes front row

Add one more Mercedes front-row qualification to this year’s list. Lewis Hamilton drove a superb qualifying at the British Grand Prix as he edged out Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg for pole position. Hamilton posted a time of 1:29.287, around a third of a second better than Rosberg’s, for his third-straight pole and his sixth overall this season. It is the 55th pole of his career, and his fourth at Silverstone. Rosberg also escaped being slapped a penalty after stewards cleared him of any fault after he drove too slowly at one point during qualifying. This allows Mercedes to keep its fifth front-row lockout of the season. Hamilton was especially appreciative of the… Continue Reading »

F1: Hamilton, Rosberg could face suspensions for future collisions

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are locked in a tight battle for the 2016 Formula One driver’s championship, and it doesn’t help one bit that they are teammates.

This is seen as a way for the team to avoid actually issuing team orders. With contact between the Mercedes cars in three out of the past five outings, team officials are now forced to act to prevent excessive competition between their drivers from sabotaging their… Continue Reading »

Hamilton wins 2016 Austrain GP; Rosberg finishes 4th for Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton took home the victory at the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix, fending off Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen. He has now won his third race out of the last four, cutting into the points lead of Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg once again. At the final lap, Rosberg was still actually in a position to win until he ran wide as he exited from turn 1. Hamilton pounced at the opportunity, but not after the two cars made contact. Rosberg had sparks coming out of his Mercedes, and he was visibly slowed down. Lewis passed him soon after and went on to the chequered flag. Rosberg was slapped with a 10-second penalty… Continue Reading »

Check Out The Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Video That Hyped The Monaco GP

The video released by Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS prior to the Grand Prix is rather impressive and may make Formula One an appealing option for people looking for a sport to follow, as shown on a report from autoevolution.com. This adrenaline-pumping video can be likened to an awe-inspiring half-time talk given by a great coach. The video was meant to hype up the Monaco GP since the appeal of Formula One has been waning in the last ten years. It may be necessary to nudge the FIA to find a solution to make the Formula One stimulating again. The current state of the race was not like what it was two decades… Continue Reading »

What Lewis Hamilton has to do to win the Spanish Grand Prix

So far in 2016, Lewis Hamilton has not had much luck. The defending Formula One drivers champion hasn’t won a race in four tries, struggling with reliability issues on his F1 W07 Hybrid multiple times.

Now, what does the Brit have to do to win the race? Get a good start “If you want to change things pole is… Continue Reading »

Mechanics Swap in Mercedes F1 is Not an Issue

Nico Rosberg is on fire. He’s been unrelenting in the first four races of the 2016 season. Some analysts claimed that his advantage may have come from swapping mechanics with the reigning Formula One Drivers’ World Champion Lewis Hamilton. However, an expert does not agree with such analysis. Dominic Harlow, a former Williams senior operations engineer, commented on the matter in an interview featured at Sky Sports F1 page earlier. He said that the swapping of the five personnel of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team between the garage of Rosberg and Hamilton posed no significant impact in terms of car performance. Harlow explained that the performance change would only happen… Continue Reading »
